locking fuel cap?

GM for some bizzare reason doesn't offer one.

Anyone know of an aftermarket source for an '07 3500 diesel locking fuel cap.

I believe you can find Stant locking fuel caps at napa or another automotive store. You'll have to ask around

I bought mine when the price of fuel first started to jump. IIRC I paid around $10 for it at pepboys in Ohio.

After putting it on one of my buddies showed me how easy it is to remove one without the key and it doesn't even damage it, I was a little disapointed by that.

Locks are for honest people but better locks make more honest people. That is why the better banks have the better locks.

If your really concerned about people stealing fuel, just remove the filler at the tank and install a witches hat style of screen. I know a few people that have done this at work in their Ford's and it works.
