Fuel Filler leakage

Postby Stonepointer on Tue Feb 04, 2014 6:40 pm

I have just had the fuel filler and cap replaced under warranty after continuously having diesel running down the side of the wagon every full tank. After 3 attempts and 2 new seals on my cap and a change in CMI Toyota's Servicing department they finally believed me that there was some defects in the metal lip and agreed to replace the whole filler tube and cap.

Whilst on the topic is it just mine or the filler cap isnt actually lockable? I lock it then i can still unscrew it?

Mines lockable on both main and sub... So I'm guessing that the caps make the tank a full sealed unit? Just for clarification...

mine locks too and I bought a second filler pipe and cap fro my extra tank and that locks too, you cannot remove the key from the cylinder unless it is locked
