    I think that would look good on any color but brilliant white.

    Rumor is locking gas cap doesn't make a good seal and is tripping the check engine light.

    Mine works fine. No error codes or CEL.

    Not sure how difficult yall are making it out to be. Insert the key, rotate the key clockwise 90 degrees. Grab the actual cap and rotate counterclockwise. Remove key. When finished fueling, rotate the cap counterclockwise until 1 click.

    I've had no issues with mine. It's just finding the right part number, which I believe I got off this forum.

    Any progress on this yet? I have been thinking about this same thing for a while now. I hate carrying extra keys and have other Bolt products and they work awesome. Apparently stealing fuel is a big thing in my neighborhood all of the sudden. To add insult to injury, when they took it from my Tacoma, they used cheap medical grade latex tubing which tore and clogged my filler tube and tank fill valve. Had to drop the filler tube and tank to try and get it all out... There might still be some small pieces in the tank. Now, with my brand new Tundra, I am getting mysterious scratches all around the filler door. Unfortunately nobody seems to make a locking door for my Tacoma, but it is past time for this mod to the Tundra.

    Also wondering, if it doesn't work for the AMI door, if it might work for the ABD door (seems a little less secure to me, but looks cooler and ultimately is just a deterrent anyway). Does anyone know if the door can just be opened by removing the allen head bolts on the AMI door once it is locked, or will the lock hold it in place?
