RE: [DML] Locking Gas Cap

You're right.  You can confirm that by reading the service bulletins.  The same thing with the old Ducieller alternator, they decided to use up all remaining stock rather than throwing them out.  I'm not sure how much of a gap there was though between when they stopped making flapped hoods and started using regular gas caps.

"It only came with cars with a separate gas flap since you would have no security with those.  Once DMC got rid of the gas flap they moved to regular unlocked caps since you would have to have access to the trunk to remove the cap."

I am certain this information is in error. Vin. 3254 never had a gas flap. However, it came stock with a "pain in the A$$" locking gas cap. My guess is, for cost purposes, DMC used the locking caps in production until the invetory was all gone. I wonder how this would be scored in a Concours event?
