    Mine lasted for almost two years before I started throwing evap codes. Couldn't even put gas in my car. It was a pita. Replaced the cap with a Delco, cleared the codes and all is well again. I wouldn't use one long term. Make sure you have a spare if you do.

    I have read that the slot for the key causes a leak and results in an EVAP code. I agree with Mama Reef about keeping an OEM spare without a key slot.

    Just clearing the codes doesn't work. Ask me how I know

    If gas prices go up to around $5.00 again, I may consider using one when I have to venture into Down Town L.A. or other areas I don't feel my car is safe. But, I won't keep it on long term again.

    Go ahead and get one if you feel you need it. Just keep a spare stock one too if you start throwing codes and then buy a new locking cap. They don't last that long.

    Question

    Ok i see the problem i believe its leaking fumes outta the key hole and maybe the sides to?
    If its just through the key hole maybe jamming vaseline down keyhole and put electrical tape over the key slot?
    Basicaly fumes leakin out right?
    Well sealing is the key i suppose, pain yeah.

    I wouldn't mess with the key hole trying to seal it. It's going to go bad sooner or later no matter what you do. Just keep a spare around for when you start throwing evap codes. Like you mentioned, It could also be the seal in the cap itself that goes bad. Like I said, mine lasted almost two years. But, when I couldn't pump gas into my car, figured out what it was, the stock cap went back on.
