    They steal it everywhere, they even drill holes in the tank to drain it.

    I got one from napa. it was like $11.

    just got one just in case. mine works fine, but you have to make sure to crank it the required amount of times to lock it, and stuff.

    I bought mine from NAPA, a little stiff but works great. Amazing how much my mileage improved with it. Put a locking one on my truck as well, after the cap was stolen and tank drained one night.

    The losers here can be real jerks about it.
