One study determined that one out of every 10 gas caps leaks, which allows gasoline to evaporate from your tank. If you don't have a gas cap on your vehicle, get one right away. If you have one, make sure it works properly. Testing for leaks involves taking a gas cap and attaching it to pressurizing equipment to check for leakage. Itís a simple test and takes only a few minutes to perform. Check with your local public agencies to see if they have the testing equipment. New gas caps costs less than $15 and are sold at most automotive stores.
