Intro: How to Not Forget Fuel Caps
This is for anyone who has to remeber their fuel cap because their vehicle is not equipped with a fuel cap holder or cord that attaches to the fuel cap.
Step 1: Removal of Fuel Cap
This is the first step to be able to put fuel in a vehicle. Open the fuel door--if present. Then, remove the fuel cap.
Step 2: Placement After Removal
Many people are tempted to just place their fuel caps on top of their vehicles--this is conveint. The problem is that people often forget to put the cap back to seal their fuel tank.
Simply, carry the fuel cap to your car, open the door, and place the cap upside down into your seat. If you are worried about fuel getting on your seat, place a rag or a few paper towels on the seat first.
Step 3: Fill'er Up
Now that your cap is in a not so easily forgotton spot, go ahead and fill up your tank without worrying.
Step 4: Fuel Cap--not Forgotten
Now when you return to your seat, the fuel cap will be waiting for you to see it--or sit on it--and remember to put your cap back and to shut the fuel door.
Step 5: Finish the Task
Now that the fuel cap is in your hand, just carry it back and place it into its place and shut the fuel door.
