  • Anyone know where I can get a replacement gas cap for a 2000 Ford Contour?

    My CNG gas cap was stolen, anyone know where I can get a replacement and what the part number is?

    Re: Anyone know where I can get a replacement gas cap for a 2000 Ford Contour?

    When I made the same inquiry about 3 years ago at a Ford parts department, they showed me a blowup schematic - it is part of the whole tank fueling line, clamps, housing, etc. A mere $80 then! I didn't need the whole enchalada, and the cap is not listed as a separate part...
    So I went to Lowe's or Home Depor and searched the plumbing section. Found a black PVC drain pipe cap, glued a short piece of black PVC pipe into it for a spacer, then put some insulation tape around the perimeter to make it fit snug. Looked OK, and protected the inlet port.
    You might try that trick...

      I make mine from a short peace of heater hose and a cut off bolt just cut the hose to where it fits overthe fitting and leaves a 1/2 inch hose sticking out and cut the end ove a bolt off and glue it in the hose than drill a 1/16 hole in the hose just below the plug so you can get it off I have also used a set screw with a allen head

          Mario,

          I've been unable to reach you via email.

          It's been a month now, and we have still not received the CNG Contour cap. What is the status of the shipment?

              You can buy a brand new one from Staubli, but you have to buy the whole mounting pot. It's about $100 for the whole unit. I have 4 on the shelf already with no caps.

                I've repeatedly tried contacting you via email and not received any reply about refunding me my money or shipping me a gas cap.

                Please send me my money back, I will find the gas cap from another source.

                  I contacted CNGCARS and he is in touch with echamberlain to get this sorted out. We will leave this thread open for a while in case anyone else has has a replacement gas cap or is looking for one. Discussions between CNGCars and echamberlain should continue directly off-board.

                    I mailed CNGCARS a check and never received a gas cap.

                    I should have just called the Ford dealer, fleet services can order one for about $35.

                      I have a cane tip on mine from the local drugstore. fits perfectly and works fine to keep out any debris and moisture..you might give this a try..they are only a couple bucks.
