    When I bought my Defender, the inside of the gas cap was rusted. I didn't think much of it, and added it to the list of future projects. Eventually I replaced the cap with a new one much list this ebay listing. Within a few weeks the interior metal bits of the new cap were also rusted. The...

    I've been shopping for a 90 for several months now and I've noticed some vehicles with what seems to be a cover for an old fuel tank inlet. I've seen this inconsistency on both NAS and imported Defenders. I can only provide the attached image since I'm a newbie to DS, but can anyone shed some...

    So, I have just taken delivery of my 1985 90 so am very excited. I'm wondering if it is typical with a 200TDI to have some vapor or smoke coming out around the gas cap area. There is also a small tube just beneath the gas tank that seems to emit exhaust or vapor. See the attached video for...

    I went to put some fuel in my D90 yesterday and when I took the fuel cap off there was fair amount of water in the cap itself. The truck was outside for a few days and we've had some rain where I am. The cap looks okay but then again I dont know much about it. Should I replace the cap? I believe...

    Hi, I want to install a locking gas cap, but I like that mine is tethered and I can't be a bonehead and drive off without it. So far I have only found locking caps, or tethered caps for sale - but not both. Anyone know if one is made and if so where I can get one?

    Hey Guys, Unfortunately don't have a picture as I live in NYC and my dad has the 90 down in FL (he is not tech savvy enough to email me a picture). From his description, it seems that the gas cap and the portion of the fuel filler it attaches to has pulled away from the body. The rubber...

    I am in California and have to pass the smog test which the truck has now failed twice. Second time was due to a "non conforming gas cap" which allows unacceptable levels of evaporation. The issue is that when the cap screws into the filler neck there is a gap between the base of the cap and...

    I was loading my new D-90 on a ferry in Alaska and they wouldn't let me take the full Jerry can of gas on board with truck. So I hastily whipped the gas cap off and dumped 1/2 the gas in the tank and 1/2 the gas on the side of the truck because the spout sucked. At any rate immediately after...

    Does anyone know if the caps are vented, or is there venting built into the system somewhere else? Need to know for waterproofing plans.

    Hello, I just bought a Defender! My first one and I am soo happy and excited. It’s my dream car, like all of yours are too I bet! Anyways, I live in Queens, NY... and I need to find a gas cap lock and lug nut locks. The lugs aren't a necessity, but the gas cap is. I don’t live in the ghetto...

    Anyone know where I can get a tethered gas cap? I know I've seen them, but not sure where. I'm sick of buying new gas caps. Any idea how they attach? Tx, HB

    Anyone ever have this happen before? I've changed caps and my tank is still pushing gas. I wonder if I've got a line blocked somewhere -- recommendations? Thanks in advance, Doug W.

    O.K. Does any one know what type of gas cap the D-90 takes. I might as well stock up on a few, I just lost my first, and I don't think it will be my last. Matt...

    Don't know if this has happened to anyone else, but this was bound to happen to me - I forgot to put the gas cap back on after filling up one time. So, there's a D90 gas cap out there somewhere at some gas station. Anyway, I need to get a replacement. Does anyone know what brand the original...
