I purchased this locking gas cap because I live in a neighborhood where things tend to disappear overnight. I awoke at 2 am one night because I could hear someone outside my window. And wouldn't ya know it, someone was sucking gas out of my tank not 12 feet away. Not only did they take most of the gas but they ripped off the cap for my tank too.
It's just too darned expensive to leave my gas up for grabs so I snapped this up when I saw that it was only 6 bucks. I have had this cap on my car for 3 weeks now and the only time the gas needle moves is when I have been driving my car, which is exactly how I like it. The lock itself is very easy to use and its easy to tell when its not locked properly. When it is locked correctly, the top of the cap spins in place but won't unscrew from the tank. By my estimation, this cap has already paid for itself 3 times over.
Since it has only been a few weeks I will update this post later to let you know how it holds up, or holds out.

Up-date 10/24/2012:
The Gas cap is still going strong. Someone tried to pick the lock to get at the tank the other night. I can see the scratches where they were trying to pry it off. I am glad to report that they did not succeed. I think it's safe to say I am well pleased with the performance.

This is a good locking gas cap for the price. The only problem is it needs instructions with it. One might not think so, but this cap locks differently than any other that I have owned in the last 40 years. This is not necessarily making it a bad thing, just different. Just a 4-inch by 4-inch piece of paper with brief instructions on it.
Remove key, screw in cap clockwise until it clicks, replace key, turn key clockwise until it stops, remove key (Locked). To (unlock) insert key, hold cap, turn key clockwise until it stops, unscrew cap.
I believe the different way this cap locks, and lack of instructions is the reason for many of the bad reviews.

although not listed in the look up, this model will fit a 1994 dodge ram250 van.

to lock:

turn gasoline cap clockwise until resistance is met; then turn the key clockwise and remove.

to unlock:

turn the key counterclockwise until resistance is met; then turn gasoline cap counterclockwise until it comes off.

on my van it fits properly and does not cause the 'check engine' warning to activate and remain lit.

i would not consider build quality of the lock assembly hefty, but acceptable for one who wants to prevent others from accessing the gasoline tank.

The cap quality and function appear to be just fine. It may just save my engine someday. Price was right also.

It works good and fits tight. Just remember to hold onto top of cap when using key otherwise you can be turning the key forever.

So far so good! I at least have a choice of locking it or not. My service light went out right after I replaced the OEM cap.
