    if it is a Stant cap a basic screwdriver and hammer will take it off. Just tap the hammer into the key hole and turn the screwdriver..done it many times.

    I had to remove a metal cap one time. It was a big PITA. I really can't remember if it damaged anything. It was a truck that I was parting out so I didn't care if it did.

    also try to turn it off first. a locking cap only locks if the person turns it til it clicks a couple times. I don't know how many times I have been told.. you're caps wasn't even locked. ( in Oregon your gas was pumped for you, cap was just smarter then them I guess)
