Update, better key words, helped
















(initial post) Oddly enough I couldn't find an exact image on google??

I did find something similar, see how this cap is store on the door in the image below (assuming image works )
Your cap should have multiple little notches/grooves that allow you to rest your cap similar to the image below, but parallel to the ground, not perpendicular. Hope this makes sense.

MK-4 era VW tv commercials were the best ever!! I remember a few with only music, piece of furniture being moved and no dialog until the very end. (that was commentator selling VW)

I went and fiddled with the fuel filler cap after thinking about my last post, huzzah! Sits there quite securely. IIRC I had to drill a small hole for the piece of cord in my cap, failsafe. Thanks for the pics RexNICO, who'd a thought.

And in NJ, you're going to have to show the gas station attendant how to store the cap, since he's either going to let the cap hang against the side of the car, or put it on top of the pump, since he's not going to let you pump your own fuel.

El Dobro-you poor bastard. I'd NEVER live in a state where they don't trust their own citizens to pump their own gas .

On New Jersey, I found a station across from the NY state line that has
"self serve" diesel. Just off I-84 near Port Jervis, where NY, NJ, & PA
intersect. The NJ price saves a good $.40 gallon over the other two.

In Europe that's how thieves conveniently break into your car without any (much) evidence. Apparently a key is not needed for this feature to work !

Rolling down the windows without a key? Just using the fob, ie. a radio signal?
