Proven High Safety and Ease of Use
MotoRad Ltd offers more than 60 different types of fuel caps and more than 50 types of locking fuel caps, all designed and manufactured to minimize fuel vapor loss while maximizing safety and ease of use
Non-Locking and Locking Fuel Caps
Our fuel caps are designed and manufactured to prevent fuel loss primarily through evaporation. Additionally, we designed our non-locking and locking caps for easy opening and closing by all drivers, including people with smaller hands. Locking fuel caps are recommended to prevent fuel theft and vandalism. All MotoRad fuel caps include venting according to industry standards, an integrated ratchet system for positive closure and elimination of over torque of the cap and an optional locking mechanism. At MotoRad, all fuel caps meet or exceed all standard auto industry requirements: They meet all emission control standards, including IM240 and AIR CARE inspection, and have been independently tested for emission control effectiveness. Cap integrity tests simulating a 90 kph (56 mph) collision, tip test and vent test prove their ability to remain sealed after a side collision.
Fuel Caps — a Small, But Crucial, Car Part
The fuel cap is an integral part of the onboard diagnostics system and emissions control system. The fuel cap prevents fuel vapor leakage from the filler neck, a major source of hydrocarbon emissions, and plays a major safety role in preventing the flow of fuel from the tank filler neck when a car is in an accident, including rollovers. Studies demonstrated that a defective or missing fuel cap can allow up to 114 liters (30 gallons) of fuel to evaporate into the atmosphere every year. For all these reasons, using a proven, high-quality fuel cap is vital to safety, fuel economy and the environment.
