I went to get my car filled at a petrol station (here we have employees at the pump to take care of it while you wait in the car).
Long story short, the cap wouldn't lock back in and I realised that it was because some of the plastic pieces on the inside of the cap had broken off.
The lock barrel is still intact, which is lucky, considering the cost of a replacement cap from lotus plus the barrel.
Does anyone know which other cars' fuel caps are compatible with the V6 Exige slot? It seems to have smaller-than-normal spaces for a regular fuel cap to fit its "teeth" in.
I live in the Gulf and we don't have a Lotus dealership where I am as of yet, so I'm at the mercy of the logistics company I'm using to get the (ridiculously priced) part shipped over and I'm looking for a temporary solution till then.
