    Sorry if this is covered somewhere else, I just got my 2500 CTD. The dealer gave it to me full so today was first time I had to put diesel in. I opened the gas lid and WTH? No gas cap just a flimsy plastic insert that slides into the fill neck? Was this an over site by the dealer or do you really get a 60+K truck with no gas cap?

    If that’s the case any recommendations on a better solution?

    Yup...no fuel cap nor a DPF cap. I got some nice lockable caps from Geno's Garage for my 2017 just to keep fuel thieves and vandals out.

    Why bother with a gas cap especially if there’s no check engine light associated with it. Plus the gas is gone in 60 seconds. Lol.

    I bought the two pack from amazon so the DEF cap and Diesel cap matched.

    The capless fuel fillers are for emissions. The capless design seals better and contains fumes and vapor loss better than traditional fillers with removable caps. Plus it takes away the human error of forgetting to put the cap back on or tighten it all the way causing a check engine light. Most if not all manufacturers are switching to this design on the newer models.
