    I went to a local auto store and bought one for my 2013 Challenger 392 (for $8 and change), and put the regular factory gas cap in a box. When Dante came in, I took the locking cap from the 2013 and put it on Dante, and again put the factory cap in a box. The old locking cap works just fine.

    Funny thing is two of my local dealerships told me they didn't have or make a locking gas cap for our cats. As you see thanks to other members here like april77 (thanks again April) I quickly learned the truth. I bought mine from Speedlogix and I haven't had any issues at all.

    While I don't think I'll actually do it, I like the idea of locking it to keep people from putting shyt in, versus anybody taking gas out...

    Yep....Some jealous fool or a hater walking by and dumping sand, salt, sugar....who knows what.....is what I'd be concerned about. Locking cap isn't a guarantee....but I think it helps. I have one on each vehicle that doesn't have a locking fuel door.

    I kept my (MOPAR) locking gas cap from my 09 SRT8 Challenger and it was the first thing I installed on my Hellcat once I brought it home!!! It fit fine!!!

    I wish the locking cap had a hole ontop for the cable could attach like the original one. Maybe I can drill a hole to make it work.

    I took it off completely. Didn't want the cap falling from the little holder a nd hitting the car. Cap always goes on top of the pump.;)
