Gates fuel caps offer a durable construction of a wear-resistant thermoplastic compound to ensure tight closing and to avoid spills and leaks. Gates’ standard fuel cap range includes locking and non-locking caps. The locking fuel caps fix securely and make tampering with your fuel tank impossible. All fuel caps are easy to install.
The caps can have two different breathing systems: vented or non-vented.
A non-vented fuel cap is recommended when your fuel tank is ventilated through the filler neck, whereas the vented fuel cap is equipped with a special breathing valve so that it can be used on non-ventilated fuel tanks.
In order to reduce air pollution as much as possible Gates supplies a special ecological cap. It is fitted with a venting valve system which prevents evaporation of harmful car fuel gases and complies with the EEC directive No. 70/221. In case of an accident the safety valve prevents fuel leaking from the tank.
Additionally, Gates offers a range of locking caps resistant against urea corrosion,
covering all main AdBlue tank applications.
