    I've tried that, but the plastic string is so stiff it pops right out

    I just hang the gas cap over the clip on the door. The string sits in that little depression and the cap just hangs there.

    I just let it hang. The cap clears the body, and its not like it is ever super windy or anything. I just hate when I put the nozzle in, or when I'm taking it out, and excess gas pours out all over the side of the car.

    Try releasing the lever on the nozzle, and holding the nozzle upright!

    It really sucks that here in Oregon you can't pump your own gas. I just noticed a ding from where the gas cap hit the side of my car. The people at the pumps always get gas on my car and slam the nozzle in as hard as they can. I know it creates more jobs but come on, there should not be a LAW that you can't pump your own gas.

    In the second pic, you'll notice there's a little ledge towards the bottom of the gas cover. On the back of gas cap, there is a small black button. The button hangs on that ledge.

    Have you no shame? Don't you know about all those exploding gas stations that the Media trys to make us believe were caused by cell phones!?!?

    And then you, you careless person, take snapshots with a digital camera no less. You infact did this above the vapor stream of a flammable liquid!

    Wished we had 93! I guess it is ok to take those shots because 93 octane has more BLOWED UP suppressors.


    Too bad Subaru did not have the forethought to put something on the inside of the filler door.

    In my township here on long island your not allowed to, so all the crazy foreigners so it for ya. This sucks because once in a while i walk around my truck and find a huge spot of dried gas on the side of my beutiful white truck. Its alot less hassel if I just tell the guy im doing it and not to come near.

    I probably look so stupid doing it, but when I unscrew it and let it dangle, I place it SO gently against my car as not to scratch it. No scratches so far!
