gas cap gasket

  • Is the rubber gasket that is in the gas cap important. stopped for fuel today and when I took the cap off the rubber gasket just fell out ie is all cracked up and pieces even broke out of the center. when I was done fueling I put the gasket back in the cap and it is intact around the edges so I suspect it it still sealing well, but I am sure it will deteriorate more and eventually will be useless.


    What I want to know is can I just discard it and if I do am I going to start getting engine codes like you do in a car when you leave the gas cap off


    also does anyone know where I can get a replacement? I looked on the polaris site and they dont list it as a separate part and I dont really want to buy a gas cap just for the rubber washer/gasket part

  • It isn't a sealed system. Mine fell out long ago.

    thank you. I am in California and I noticed that on the polaris site under parts there is some evaporative crap specific to California only, but the cap seems to be the same for all

  • Yeah it is only a capture tank under the fin. Can yank that too if you reroute the hose. I just left it there though when I moved. Doesn’t hurt anything.

  • No part number it was when I first got my sling. They have a section with plastic and rubbers gaskets and stuff related to them. It was probly 2 years ago I got a locking gas cap and shipped the original to someone on here who needed it.

    Mine started falling out once in a while...it appears it was once permanently connected and that connection broke.


    The gasket serves a purpose or Polaris wouldn’t have bothered...


    Gasoline evaporates and the gasket is to, #1 prevent that and #2 to keep evaporating fumes from entering the atmosphere....think pollution...and you might start smelling gas fumes.
