Sugar in the tank

I'm desperatly looking for a locking gas cap for my mustang and I can't find it.
I looked first at Ford, in every auto parts in my area and even on ebay. It seems impossible to find. The reason is that one of my fellow (at the job) ruin the engine of his Passat 2004; a very clever person drop some sugar in his gas tank...

I don't want to get the same treatment...

Is somebody know a place that I can order a such cap (or a way that I can secure the tank..)

Thanks in advance...

BP

the only thing I know to tell you is one of those metal fuel doors. One with a remote open. You may not be interested, but I think they look good and it would be useful.

Living in Canada is part of your problem. I got my gas cap from a local store here in the states. I'm pretty sure Stant made it.

Thanks everybody...

I don't get any autozone in my area; I found the Stant company on the net and they gave me the model no 10502 to fit my car and they refer me to a Uni-Select auto-parts.

I never heard about them before

The price here in Canada is $55.00

Sorry for the answer delay, I've been sick (little heart trouble)

Thanks again

B.P.

So you guys dont have any kind of auto parts stores around you because I mean i'm sure I can get a locking gas cap around here for like $10 dollars. I dont know how much that is in canadian. I know it cant be too much more though.

Most locking gas caps go for between 20-35$$

If you want one for $10, you might as well give up hope
