    Default Fuel Tank Locking Cap? (2216)

    Anyone know if there's a fuel tank cap that can be locked or otherwise secured to prevent tampering or fuel theft? The tractor stays outside and even though the tank doesn't hold a whole lot of diesel I thought maybe with prices of fuel going up a locking cap wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Actually, locking caps can be a very bad idea...........depending on the thief.

    Ever tried to remove a locking cap from a tank...........after a thief punched a screwdriver through the middle of it..........and couldn't get it off?

    Ya don't want to be there.........trust me.
