Fuel Tank Caps


All Cap designs/styles are for Diesel Fuel Tanks and have been "Drop Tested" to meet DOT qualifications for HWY Transportation Fuel Tank safety.  

Ordering Notes:  

  • All of our fuel caps are female thread style (unless stated otherwise) i.e. Peterbilt lever style, Freightliner cam-cap style.
  • Always measure the inside diameter (ID) of Fuel Cap for a more positive Identification if there is any question as to which Cap to use.
  • Always make sure the Tank is either Vented or non-Vented in order to Identify correct Vented or Non-Vented Cap. (note: a Vented Cap is made to work with a non-Vented Tank; it is also safe to use on a Diesel Fuel Tank that is already Vented; a non-Vented Tank Must have a Vented Cap to operate properly).
  • Should the Cap not be available to measure - measure the outside diameter (OD) of the Fill Tank Neck to determine inside Diameter (ID) of Cap.
  • Please feel free to call us should you have any questions about a cap application fit.

Please note: Some Older Freightliner and Peterbilt Truck Fuel Tanks (Pre mid 1990's), and many Western Star Tanks use a 3.5"-5.5 NS threaded Cap (Same as the Current Kenworth Class 8 Trucks) or a 3" Cap.  Also, though Steel Tanks are not as common in the HD Truck Industry as Aluminum, it is recommended to clarify whether the tank is Aluminum or Steel. i.e. many International Trucks have steel (Borg Warner) tanks which require a 2" UN threaded Cap (FTA-C-74 or FTA-C-14-03).  The inside diameter (ID) of some Caps used with Low-Sulfur labeled Diesel Fuel Tanks are smaller and have different treads than Caps used with Diesel Fuel Tanks that have no Low Sulfur Label. (See the Volvo Description as an example)
