Fuel Cap Clip question

5490 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  GrumpyOne
Does your Regal have a clip on the inside of the fuel cap to hook it onto the fuel door? I was looking at the following video and they show putting the cap on the fuel door. I see the holder onthe inside of the fuel door but I don't have a clip on the fuel cap. Might, be a silly question but just wondered what others have. I checked with the dealer and none of their Regals have the clip. They are going to send a product information request to GM.

Got my answer..
The only vehicles that have this clip are those that are E85 equipped and the vehicles that are before the model year break point. I hope this helps.

Strange. I have a turbo that is E85 equipped and I do not have a clip.
care to post a picture of what the clip looks like?
Hopefully this link works. What I first posted didn't work.

Interesting... i dunno it seems as if it almost looks like a standard option on the car, maybe it depends on other trims level's i think you should contact your dealer and see what they say about it .
lol GM fail...the door in the video is a lacrosse door. or maybe im just used to seeing the e85 yellow cap and swinging it over the hook on the door when i gas up.
Gm fails pretty often, maybe GM just failed to put it on a Bunch of cars... who knows. GM says this they show that...

EPIC fail
I just checked mine and I have the same problem. I have the clip on the door but I don't have the clip an the fuel cap itself. Seems kind of dumb to me.

Here are 3 pics of my Regal's fuel cap and door. Note that the end of the fuel cap has a circular piece that fits into the slot on the door. Nothing fancy but it works.:)
