About Fuel Cap Locks
Part of your car's security system, the Land Rover fuel cap lock enables you to lock the fuel cap on your vehicle.
The Land Rover fuel cap is a small cap that covers the hole where you put the fuel into a vehicle. The fuel cap protects and covers the top of the pipe that connects to the fuel tank. The Land Rover fuel cap lock provides peace of mind when leaving your car parked unattended, restricting access to the fuel cap.
Usually made of plastic, fuel caps usually just clip or press into place over the opening. The fuel cap can be located on either side of the vehicle, towards the back, often on the quarter panel or rear wing. The Land Rover fuel cap lock ensures that the fuel cap cannot be removed without the use of the designated key, helping to secure the fuel tank and therefore the fuel inside it. The Land Rover fuel cap serves to prevent dirt, dust and other unwanted debris from entering the fuel pipe and potentially clogging up and damaging the fuel filters. It also functions to stop fuel from spilling, leaking and evaporating out of the vehicle. The Land Rover fuel cap also prevents others from accessing your fuel supply and siphoning the fuel. Having a lock on your fuel cap ensures the fuel cap stays locked tight, enabling the fuel cap to do its job properly.
Usual reasons for replacing this part is damage, caused by rust, for example, or loss of the key which opens the lock on the fuel cap. Purchasing a Land Rover fuel cap lock will ensure the part fits perfectly with the Land Rover fuel cap and the make and model of your vehicle.
Land Rover trivia
- Land Rover was notorious for trying to find ways to avoid paying taxes and extended that to their customers too. They built the Defender 110 so that it could (just about) fit 12 people! Technically, that meant that they could class it as a bus, and owners didn't have to pay standard road tax.
- In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
- According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- Land Rovers and James Bond go hand in hand. The 4x4 Land Rover has been in more Bond films than there have been Bond actors! In Spectre, the Defender SVX was customised with 37-inch tyres and more power.
