    When I had mine apart I didn't have any solvent so I tried the wife's nail polish remover to clean the inside of the lens and then I think I put a coat of clear fingernail polish on. Still looks pretty clear after five years.

    Well, I managed to run out of fuel while mowing yesterday, and I was as far as I could be on my property from where my completely full (and heavy) 6 gallon gas can was at. I had to walk back and forth twice becuase I discovered that the screw in the banjo fitting I needed to loosen (to bleed the fuel down) couldn't be turned with a screwdriver because of paint. All of this to say that I'm thinking again about how NICE it would be to have a fuel gage on my cap!
    Yanmar YM2210, Taylor-way 5' finish mower, Woods 4' rotary mower, boom pole, hayride wagon; upgraded tractor with gas turbine engine plus strap on solid rocket motors for that extra boost of speed... but brakes only work when I'm on the ground.

    Following your advice I painted clear nail polish on the frosted underside of the lens.

    Running the tractor today, the gauge is clearly visible at first glance. No need to study it intently any more. Great idea!

    Thanks!!!

    To clean the outside of your clear gas cap lens that has yellowed; Toothpaste works great, especially if it has an abrasive in it, or use Rubbing Compound. It is very difficult to remove these lenses from the gas cap since they used 'super glue' to install them and an older lens has dried and is prone to cracking and shattering when removed, so we can't really clean the underside. Sometimes, older flashlights have this same diameter lens and will replace into the cap. The gauge face and dial can also be cleaned this same way.
