Bear with me on this one...
I have a Coupe with a filler flap behind which resides a cap that sits on a threaded filler pipe. There's no need for a locking filler cap as the lock is on the flap. Simples.

Is the thread on the early filler pipe the same as later Coupe's (exposed cap on the upper wing) and all HPE's? ie Will a non locking cap fit a late Coupe or HPE?

Why's he asking I hear all the readers who haven't switched off by now!

Well I just bought a Lada ignition lock/key (because it's the same as I use on the Stratos - 124 Coupe/Spider) and it came with a locking petrol cap. The cap has a threaded part that fits my Beta and looks like it's secured with a pin/screw, the actual cap comes off this threaded part so it may be of use to someone who wants a locking petrol cap. I only have one key for it though. First to shout can have it for a few beer tokens & postage!
