Question Gas Cap Questions

How long does it take for the CE light to come on if your gas cap is left off? IE you forget to put cap on after filling up. Is there a way to find out, if someone was messing with your gas tank? IE someone put water in gas or whatever etc. And finily where can I get a locking gas tank cap for my00 rs?

Once my gas cap disappeared it only took about 2 trips and 50 miles for the CE light to come on. Dunno about the rest.

Try your local auto parts store. they should have a locking gas cap. The Legacys use the same gas cap so the book said when I was buying mine. Stant is the brand name on mine. If you have a G.I. Joes or anything around they should have them. About the light it may come on and it may not come on. If you didnt start the car it won't come on because the CPU will not recognise a vacume loss in the fuel system. If you did start and run the car then it probably will come on but no telling when. Maybe you should just do the remote fuel door and be done with it. That is what I plan to do. That way it may discourage the thought of even messing with my gas tank.

Stant 11501 is the locking gas cap part number that fits the MY98-01's.
