Water in my Gas Tank

Ok, so I just upgraded my gas cap to a great billet one but it doesn't fit with the rubber seal...this is the new capless tank and without the rubber seal from the cap I'm worried about water getting into the tank when it rains or I wash the car....Any ideas to fix this other then buying the $30 Locking fuel cap???

Should I really be worried...or am I just paranoid....

I don't think u need to worry. If u read your manual, the only way to get in the cap less tank is with a special funnel in your trunk. The cap less tank is always closed until you touch it with the gas pump or the special funnel. Go ahead and try to stick your finger in it. Lol You can't, it's sealed.

Re: Water in my Gas Tank

there is already water in your gas so its there already a little bit that might get there from just being there when you open the valve isnt going to be a huge issue.
