The gas cap has undergone a curious evolution throughout automotive history, depending on whether automotive stylists wanted it to be visible or concealed from view. The first caps protruded from the body in utilitarian fashion, but as cars became more streamlined they were hidden away under fuel doors that blended in with the body. Then even fuel doors were considered too unsightly and gas caps disappeared behind moveable tail lights or license plates.

In the muscle car era of the 60s and 70s, gas caps were once again on display as auto makers sought to emulate race cars with quick fill gas caps. This style cap can still be found on some modern performance models, but as a rule the gas caps on most vehicles reside behind a body-color fuel door. But this doesn’t mean you have to live with this obscurity. We have the gas caps, fuel doors, and fuel door covers to add style and bright detail to any vehicle.

Chrome and polished stainless steel have long been used by stylists to break up expanses of paint and provide detail and visual interest to vehicle design. If you think your gas cap is a candidate for this treatment, we’ve got a wide range of options. Availability will vary according to vehicle and accessory manufacturer, but if you punch in your year, make, and model we’re sure you’ll find just what you’re looking for to set your car or truck apart. Although we have actual chrome gas caps for certain models, most applications will call for a fuel door or fuel door cover.

A fuel door cover is the quickest and easiest way to a great custom look. They attach in minutes with 3M acrylic foam tape, so you can be enjoying your ride’s new appearance in no time. Choose from a variety of designs, from smooth chrome plated or mirror polished stainless steel, to covers that resemble a race car’s fuel fill port, to custom designs including vehicle logos, flames, tribal art, and more. Our covers are constructed from premium materials including top grade stainless steel with a high chromium content to resist corrosion, sturdy billet aluminum, or ABS plastic that is impact, heat, and chemical resistant.

Our fuel fill doors also provide unrivaled style and are almost as easy to install. They completely replace your existing fuel door and come with complete instructions and everything needed to complete the installation. They’re constructed from the same materials and come in most of the same styles as our fuel door covers, but some are also available in a locking version. Unfortunately many cars and trucks come from the factory with fuel doors that are unsecured, leaving the vehicle open to fuel theft and vandalism. One of our locking fuel doors will deter thieves and mischief makers.

    Chrome Trim: Overlay vs. Replacement
    One of the more eye-catching tricks automobile manufacturers have used to differentiate higher-priced luxury versions of a car model from value-priced versions of it has been to vary the amount of chrome trim on the vehicle. Base model cars and trucks (also known as "strippers" or "entry level") have little if any chrome while luxury and top-of-the-line ones have the most chrome. In years past, plain Jane cars were simply painted in all areas instead of being chromed. In more recent decades, the low-cost replacement of choice has become black plastic. This makes base models easier than ever to spot because the eye catches hard on black plastic. Completely missing is the pleasing chrome finish on grilles, door trim, mirror assemblies, light bezels, and other areas. Base models end up looking more like fleet vehicles or work trucks than anything prestigious, especially to people who aren't automotive enthusiasts.

This locking gas cap looks great. I had the Chevy dealer install this item to protect vehicle warranty.
