It might be worthwhile to check your local car parts stores (Pep Boys, Advance Auto, Auto Zone, Napa, etc.). You might save a few bucks. I know one time my brother set his oil cap on the engine of his 99 Dodge Dakota and forgot to put it back on and it eventually fell off somewhere on the road never to be found, so he went to a local parts store and picked up a relatively inexpensive replacement. I'd assume maybe a gas cap could be found there too?

How did you lose it? Isn't it attached to a cord?

You either have to go through a few start cycles are unhook your negative cable.

(or the cap isn't sealing)
