Tricky suckers have them side by side.

That cap would be great peace of mind though & quick look on you tube you can get cover cap for them re contamination etc

I've never seen a black 91 ULP bowser.

Yeh, forgot forgot about that.
I just defy logic for me I'm afraid..
Manufactures have a shed load of engineers designing fuel systems for their diesel vehicles..engineers with heaps of letters after their names....Mitsubishi over the 20+ years of the current shaped Pajero would have dabbled in all types of fuel connection systems...but still they fall back on the screw type cap...why is this?...it's cheap, it's universal and wait for it...it WORKS..

Would appreciate feedback if you have experience in using them.

I have the solo diesel cap and hate it. It was installed by the previous owner.

I find it always overflows at the end of filing up. Just a little bit squirts out, but it has clearly done this its whole life as the the rubber seal between the plastic flares and the body work directly below the fuel cap has gone yellow from the constant exposure.
