OK here it is.

Parts
- Honda Gas Cap Hanger from 2002 Civic (P/N 74423-SZ3-003)
- super sticky 2 sides tape, padded (the back surface area of the hanger is uneven)
- scisors



Instructions
- cut your padded tape to fit over the back of the hanger as shown
- if you use padded tape you don't have to worry about trimming the hanger to sit flat on the door.

Thats a good idea, but how come our cars dont come with some sort of hanger that goes around the cap and the opening of the tank, I dont know if you know what I mean or not, but oh well.

I'd like to know how they come attached from the factory also. The one from Hand-A-Accessories actually looks better than this one.

The stock 2002 one probably has proper mounting on the door. You can always get the whole door...

That'll probably be $50+, judging by what other OEM parts costs.

here is the DIY for the one they sell at Handa-accessories.

BTW, i thought DIY's were for things that might be tricky. any genius who can't stick something down with tape shouldn't be driving.

Did you actually read what they wrote on that site about the gas cap holder?


<< It is an inexpensive addition that any owner can make to enhance the gas filling experience. >>


LOL ... I didn't know gas-filling was an &quot;experience&quot; that could be enhanced...

Hehehe... okay so see how the pieces that he attached the tape to... well, those are uneven for a reason, they tuck into metal sleeves on the door...

at least i think so... i know mine doesnt use adhesive. and it seems logical

Of course. The only proper upgrade is to get the whole 2002 gas door. I don't really care as long as it works. Its' acttahced firmly enough that I can yank on the hanger and pull the door. That's good enough since the gas cap isn't that heavy anyways.

Yes, all this trouble. Like I said before, I'm $10 annoyed... you may not be as annoyed by the fact that there's no gas cap hanger. If you're $50 annoyed, you can get the whole door. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

How annoyed are you?

And what kind of moron puts his gas cap on his trunk or hood??? They too should have their keys taken away. Just put the cap on the gas pump (phillips 66 has big box looking pumps that have the credit card reader built into them).
