I'd send him a gold medal though if he used a beer can! A nice bud or miller light. And some duct tape!

Why not just buy a new oil cap? No more than $10 at the local parts store...

Definitely get a new cap, but that right there is proof that necessity is the mother of invention.

i bought a new oil cap, $4.95 at autozone, but i needed something temporarily.


as far as losing it, well i dont think i actually lost it, its probably in the shop... somewhere... ill find it in a few years im sure.

I thought about duct tape and electrical tape, my fear was that it might melt and be a big mess. which is why iused HVac tape. It worked quite well, i tapped a hole in the top so that any moisture would hopefully evaporate out.

I can understand losing a valve stem cap on your tire...but an oil cap?

Coca-cola can?
