MotoRad fuel caps are designed and manufactured to prevent fuel loss primarily through evaporation. Additionally, MotoRad non-locking and locking caps are designed for easy opening and closing by all drivers, including people with smaller hands. They prevent fuel vapor leakage from the filler neck, which is a major source of hydrocarbon emissions, and play a major safety role in preventing the flow of fuel from the tank filler neck when a car is in an accident, including rollovers.
Features & Benefits:
Controlled pressure release allows slow release of pressure before removing the cap
Protects your fuel from theft and vandalism
Integrated ratchet system promotes positive closure
Passes all state and federal emissions tests
Manufactured from durable, long-life materials
Reduces air pollution with proper sealing and venting
Independently tested for emission control
Motorad Locking Cap Installation Instructions
Twist the cap to the right until it clicks or it comes to a stop.
While holding the cap, insert the key and turn it to the right about a half a turn until the key can be removed.
When the cap spins freely, you will know the cap is locked and your fuel is protected.
There may be times when you do not want to lock your fuel cap. A competitive advantage of the MotoRad locking cap is that it can be used in the locking or non-locking position. When the key is turned to the left and removed,
the cap is unlocked and no longer spins freely.
What is Controlled Pressure Release?
Caps with controlled pressure release technology allow pressure built up in the fuel tank on hot days to be released gradually when the cap is opened. This prevents fuel from erupting and spraying out on the motorist. Below are the three types of controlled pressure release cap styles (not all styles are available for all applications):
Push Vent Push button to release pressure
Key Vent Push key into lock to release pressure
Twist Vent Push & 1/4 turn to release pressure
What is the Difference Between Black, Yellow and Green Caps?
The color of the cap can be used to identify the vehicle's fuel compatibility. The physical cap is the same, regardless of color.
Gasoline Black is the standard Fuel Tank Cap color for vehicles that take Gasoline
Flex (E85) Fuel Yellow indicates your vehicle is Flex (E85) Fuel compatible
Diesel Fuel Green serves as a reminder that your vehicle only takes Diesel Fuel
