Stant used to make decent quality products. This one is a piece of junk.

Junk, not recommended.
When I first installed the cap, I tested it first to make sure it would unlock, so I thought we were good to go.
The first time we went to fill up, we spent almost 1/2 hour trying to get it to unlock. On the last attempt, the lock cylinder came out along with the key. The only way to remove the gas cap at that point was with a screwdriver. Without the lock cylinder, the cap is not only useless as a locking gas cap, it is also longer air-tight, and this has a risk of throwing a check-engine code for a loose fuel cap.
Just make sure you don't throw away the original gas cap, because you WILL need it when this piece of junk breaks. You're also going to need tools to pry it off the filler neck if it hasn't already come apart. Also, the original gas cap for my vehicle comes with a tether to prevent losing it. It's not possible to install the tether on the locking gas cap. In this case, losing it would be more of a blessing than an inconvenience.
