Zero smell. Zero pressure when opening gas cap.

Steve - the Mud thread has a link. I just ordered online. Was $44 delivered.

I did the same...bought one for my neighbors 80 as well and shared shipping which wasn't much to begin with. So glad I did this...no more noxious fumes.

Bought one today. On the last few fill ups, I was unable to put gas in until the tank stopped venting. The pressure was enough to turn off the gas pump.

I didn't really like having to go aftermarket on this, but the price tag for new Toyota just doesn't make sense for this particular part.

Guys, how is this holding up? And can anyone speculate if I'd have issues trying to put this in a 100 series? Now that it's hot out my 100 smells as bad as, or maybe even worse than, the 80 ever did.. stinks up the whole garage.

I had a slight gas smell once driving back from Utah. But was in the truck ().

Seriously: no pressure, no smells.

I am in the same boat Tim.

Pulled up to Mike Smith's shop yesterday and he was comforted that he was not the only one having this issue in a 100 series. I mentioned it seems to only happen when really hot.

I am not that worried, unless it is time to replace the charcoal filter.

My 80 has just started to show the signs too. Guess I'd better get my order in at the local parts store.

My 100 has had the same issue since I bought it. Has this been done on a 100 yet?
