    Oh they are easy to break! After 5 or 6 normal and gentle "trys" after all you just had it off 15 min. ago on the last tank, no prob. Well I'll screw this F***ER ON NOW! ........ all done. Go directly to dealer. Just don't see the need for a 7 or 8 pc. gas/oil cap. I think, no I know that the cap(s) on my very old and Stihll in use 041 have never been replaced.

    I checked all of my saws and other equipment they all are "D" caps that was when I got the notice several weeks ago. The ethenol caps are series "E" or better. I asked the dealer and he said the hedgers and blowers are covered, no saws... Thanks STIHL!

    I stand corrected, "E" caps are the newer caps. :red:

    That'll learn me not to double-check the recall notice before posting.

    Flippy caps sux when yer an impatient bass turd. Trust me, it's best to wash the gas off and change your pants.

    The Germans generally try to build stuff better than anyone else.
    Sometimes they succeed.
