    Stihl 036 Pro Model Gas Cap

    Stihl engineers violated 'Murphy's Law' and fixed something that wasn't broke. The dealer finally gave me the new cap with the revised"new" plastic. Supposedly resistant to ethanol gas. "GEEZ" What was wrong with the old screw in caps as opposed to the stupid new turn & snap ones. I love the Stihl engines etc. but don't re-invent the old wheels.

    My "newer" 241 saw and my KombiMotor both have the "New Super Reengineered Fantastic Flippy-Fill" fuel caps.

    The Kombi goes on every time no fight. The 241 vexed me one time too many on the second fill so the next time I took off the cap I marked where it separated from the casing and marked the cap. Line 'em up, turn it to the right and flip it. Yup, if it don't leak, don't **** with it!

    I think I am in the minority as I actually like the flippy caps. I have never had one come open, leak or get broken in use.
    I feel they are closer to the saw body and have less of a chance of catching on something and breaking the cap or the tank.
    The only criticism I have of them is they are very difficult to clean around before you open them.

    I actually use a "terry cloth towel" for cleaning both units. The twists seem to get in there pretty well... I agree they don't leak and once one gets used to them they are OK however unnecessary the change was. I think there's more chance of a "novice dangerous class sawyer" cross threading a Flippy than a screw on, but market research might prove me wrong. (Hogwash!)
