Diesel filler cap on new CTD.

Recommended Posts

Being as I have nothing to do with my time according to my wife, I noticed the lack of a cap on the diesel filler neck for the new Rams when surfing 

info on new CTD trucks.

The style looks like a funnel for crap to collect and potentially drop into the fuel tank.

That’s the sort of thing I saw.. Didn’t know what you guys were using if anything...

I am on dusty and dirty roads periodically.

And,winter travel on highways with salt and gravel.

Surprised an expensive rig has such a crappy cap to protect the diesel fill neck.

My wifes Grand Cherokee has a similar set up.  Drives me nuts...  But, in 25K miles I have yet to see anything sitting inside the filler neck.  I am not sure how they do it.  I would still go with a cap if I could find a way to do it.

I have all three mentioned above on mine too!!!

 

 

I travel too many logging roads to chance it.  When I get done cutting firewood for the year, the 'dust seal' on the fuel door only lets in about 1/8" of dust.  No way in hell was I going to chance that 1/8" getting into my fuel.

 

Side note.... the truck does have 2 fuel filters.  Guessing it was engineerings way to make sure they didn't have to spend the other 1.25 each vehicle on a fuel cap.

Thanks for the reminder mark.   I need to put mine on.  It's sitting on the bench in the garage.

I always look at Geno's Garage first.

I've had my truck since 7/2015, never an issue. It is a two lid system, the first is the one you see, the second is activated by inserting the nozzle all the way in. Trust me on this, I didn't insert the nozzle all the once, it only takes once to learn. 

 

With that said, Geno's has an awesome selection of locking and non-locking caps.

 

Now to go and order that tailgate assist.....

I've had that on my '06 from the second week I picked the truck up.  It's actually funny opening it and watching people lurch to try adn grab it when I let go.
