the petrolcap has a small sort of hook on it to hang your screw cap onto when filling so you dont misplace it,
but whats got me baffled is what the **** is that little sort of grey stick which sits up near the hinge,,wot is it for????
i thought mabe summat to do with resetting locking mech for fuel cap..ie the black pin which sticks out when locked

i wud love to know its got be baffled,,,i will kick myself if its summat obvious

You should have looked at national tyres. They have a discount page where you can print vouchers. Last month 5 wheels balanced for a fiver! :D

There were also many others, but can't remeber them now.
