    I wouldn't have a problem with buying a separate locking gas cap, as I had on my ram, but I've heard that Tundra is likely to throw an error code about the gas cap...

    Yeah, it looks like it's an electronic solenoid that unlatches the door, releasing the pin that holds it shut. The cap is a standard Tundra cap.

    because Toyota likes to do odd shit for no reason. Like have the truck shut off when you open the door after remote start and put a hodge podge of mix matched materials on thier trucks

    ha!

    Yes, I really dislike the shut off on our LC, why bother to have remote start, if you have to start all over again when the door is opened. I thought it was something special with the hybrid:), thanks for the reply.

    The switch for the door opener - the gas pump button. (this isn't my dash, but one that I found that was similar that had the gas pump in it similar to mine)

    On the NON-Hybrid, that is where the Auto Stop/Start disable button is. Locking gas cap or lid still doesn't prevent some fool from drilling a hole in you tank and getting your gas.

    If it were up to Toyota none of them would have the locking gas cap.

    but it’s federally required for hybrids

    I wonder why that would be significant in the design of a hybrid as far as the gov is concerned? why a solenoid? Landcruiser has the locking cap with cable release, a solenoid is another thing to fail....

    I’d have to look up the literature but it has to do with the pressurization .

    Ford is the same way. I was made when my 5.0 came with the non locking gas door. Found out it’s only in the PB

    Sooo... Very informative, and thank you everyone for your sympathy and understanding!

    Any tips on how I can find a locking gas cap that won't throw a CEL?

    It's not a locking gas cap. It's a locking gas door. I get it for the Fords as they don't have a gas cap and possibly seal the door but this Tundra hybrid still has a gas cap under the door and as far as I can tell, the door and cap is otherwise the same. The locking door on my Tundra hybrid is definitely not sealed.

    I also wish they put the release button by itself or on the end of the row. I have to 'hunt' for it a bit each time among other buttons that are otherwise rarely used.

    Even better, do it like my Lexus that has push to open on the door but it's locked if the doors are locked. Much, much more practical and handy to me and not sure why they didn't copy this smarter approach, given the 'Toyota way'.

    The gas
    This is correct, hybrids like the new iforce max equipped tundra have pressurized tanks. When the button is pressed, the pressure is released and the lid opens. My phev tuscon is the same way, as is the power boost ford.

    I’m sure there’s an expensive harness, module, and other stuff on top of the door and button.

    Toyota's not the only one that does the odd remote start shut off, my 2021 Mercedes GLE 350 did the same thing with remote start, soon as you touched the door handle it shut off. That GLE was probably the worst vehicle I've ever owned. So happy to be rid of it.

    Have you tried locking the doors then seeing if the gas cap door will open? We went thru this on my wife's lexus , anyone can open the gas cap if the cars is running or just unlocked. but if you park, and lock all 4 doors.....the Gas cap Door is LOCKED with no access to to the fuel

    I don’t know what it is but it looks as if the Tundra dwarfs that F150. Significantly so…

    The Tundra was a little closer than the Ford but it definitely looks bigger .

    Got word today from Trail Grid Pro that they are working on a front/rear facing anytime camera package for the 2022 and up Tundras. I am very excited about this, as it is one of the only things my SR5 doesn’t have that I would like when off-roading. They said they expect to release first half of 2023. Below is the link to the previous version for reference.

    Nice. I’ll be getting one of those as soon as available.

    really wish I had a front camera when off-road on my SR5
