I wouldn't use a metal tether at all, the least amount of static electricity going toward your gas tank, the better.

yeah I think maybe a small rope or twine would be better maybe try that.
but I would think if you did use metal and you properly bonded it there shouldn't be any static because it would always be grounded with the tether.

I agree... and besides, the tank, nozzle and hose assembly are designed to ground the whole system and prevent the feared explosion from a static discharge. If they didn't you would have cars blowing up all over the place every day.

Don't worry about a metal tether - it will look cool and you won't get blown up because of it.

Ditto that. And it would've been nice if they put one of those clips on the gas door to sit your cap in while filling rather than having it dangle on the side of the body.

Are there any tricks for undoing the screw that hold the tether to the fuel door?

Got it... had to pull the screw out without breaking the head off... great design if you don't want it to come off
