Fuel cap alternative for Villiers Mk10

Post by bluedog on Sun Nov 04 2012, 12:34

Just wondered if anyone knows if there are any other fuel cap makes which will fit a Villers cylindrical tank with the two pronged style closure. Looking for a cheap solution in the short term.

The caps off an old tin oil can fit some villiers tanks have one on my mk10. Free temp fit just put small hole in centre so as not to create a vacuum
