Tired of the spell of gas seeping out your gas cap gage? I am or was. Thanks to John I ordered gas cap for a Snapper engine. Part number is 1-2515 or you can get the Oregopn substitute part 07-308. Fits like a glove. Cost was just over $10.00. Who needs a stinking gas gage any how, I fill it up before I go out each day.

At 2:30 PM yesterday afternoon I fill the Ranger up to the lip with gas and tightened the new gas cap down. Drove home and loaded the ranger on the trailer for a little run in the desert. After four hours of driving some at a little tilted angle. I managed to get home at 10:30 PM. I was so tired I didn't even unload until this morning.
NO GAS LEAK. ZERO/ZILCH/NADA!
I am a happy camper once again.
I also attached a chain to the vent screw the avoid loosing the cap. Just in case.

Joe:
Thanks for the tip regarding the chain. I have run over my original gas cap twice and lost a snapper cap in the past, but the chain that I added should prevent these problems in the future. I also discovered that you can convert the original cap to a leakproof cap by taking out the support rods and float assembly. I also took out the guage and inserted a screw which I am going to seal into place. I think the basic Polaris cap and the Snapper (Oregon) cap are the same cap as they both have "KELCH.COM" on the inside. I went to the Kelch.com website and found that they manufacture several kinds of gas caps that are 2 1/4" in diameter. I would guess that most are for small engine applications and they would be available from lawn mower shops and the like.

Thanks for the info. I saw the post once before and forgot about it. I have soft doors and it covers the gauge, leaving the smell in the cab.
