There are a couple of notches on the cap that allow you to hang it from the filler door.

^ That is a goddamn marvel of engineering. The Germans have officially thought of everything.

To think I was just letting my gas cap hang there like a punk.

I cut the tether off. When I get to the pump, I remove the cap and chuck it into the nearest bush, patch of trees, or some sort of wet lands.

I pump gas. Then I spend anywhere from 5 to 165 minutes retrieving the cap. I screw it back on and drive away.

I'm not letting it dangle against the paint and I don't know any better way.

That's it, I am taking my car back to the dealer. I don't have a gas cap.

Only a Diesel cap.
