Boat Gas Caps
Some boat owners will take the trouble to use fuel additives to protect their gas from deteriorating, but overlook a leading cause of fuel contamination: water seeping in from failed boat gas caps. Since these components are your fuel line (and engine’s) first line of defense, it makes sense to ensure that they are in good working order. Before and after every voyage, be sure to check your gas cap to make sure it is working properly. Rubber components such as O-rings can degrade over time, so it is important to check your gas cap after every trip and replace the gas cap’s rubber parts every season.
Wholesale Marine carries a selection of boat gas caps from such leading manufacturers as Attwood, Davis Instruments, Moeller Marine, Perko Marine, Sea Dog, and Whitecap Industries. Cost-conscious boaters may opt for Perko’s Vented Fills, which features an angled neck for easy filling. Thinking of upgrading from plastic to metal? Sea Dog has a Cast Stainless Fuel Deck Fill with Deck Key that will not break the bank, and fits a standard 1-½” fuel hose.
