    Locking Gas Cap

    I have a 2010 SportCombi and have failed to find the right locking gas cap for it. Does one exist? The one I got at Autozone was not made by Stant and did not fit as they said it should. I did some searching and saw that there used to be a kit with a solenoid that would lock the gas lid. This is no longer sold. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep my gas tank safe?

    Thanks!

    I'm looking for one that I can lock with a key or a way to lock the filler door. It looks like the one from the suggested post is a regular cap.

    I've heard that there is a Stant brand locking gas cap that fits.

    I put in a locking gas flap in my 2005 9-3. During the second half of the model year, US 9-3 cannot have a Tech II adjustment to activate the flap. My 9-3 is one of those cars. The locking flap still works because I pull the hinged trunk cover and use my finger to push the lever every time I buy gas.

    You need a Stant 11511. Thats what I have. I got it at Oreilly's. Autozone didnt have it. It is a special-order part.

    Not sure if it's the same for the Combi but,

    [FONT=Times]I was lucky enough to find the Stant #5115 for my '10 convertible at Meijer's while my wife shopped for groceries. It works fine but it's difficult to get the key in the slot. I might try to sand the edges slightly.
    Wish I could get the fuel door to lock as it does in my '00 & back to my '98.[/FONT]

    I see that Stant 10511 is the part for 2008 9-3s. I don't see a 11511 or 5115. Can someone confirm that 10511 will work with a 2010 9-3?

    Thanks
