Why Replace Your Gas Cap?

By digital | Posted in Car Safety on Monday, April 15th, 2019 at 1:55 pm

American Car Center is dedicated to seeing its hard-working and loyal customers in safe and reliable vehicles. A quick and easy measure to ensure just this is a check of your vehicle’s gas cap. Replacing a damaged or missing fuel cap greatly increases road safety and fuel economy.

Modern automotive fuel systems require a complete seal of the gas tank. The total seal prevents dangerous vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. An improperly functioning gas cap may even actuate the dashboard’s Check Engine indicator. The threaded, slight turn-and-click cap design is meant to signal a proper seal.

A cracked or worn gas cap is a malfunctioning gas cap that requires replacing. A cracked cap or missing seal permits fuel evaporation, costing motorists money.

Purchasing a replacement gas cap is simple; visit your local automotive parts retailer with your vehicle’s make and model year to receive the matching O.E.M. part.

Installing your new fuel cap is a snap, or rather, a click.
