Fuel filler locks

Mechanical fuel filler locks: to open and close the fuel filler again a mechanical cylinder lock is often used in the fuel filler.

Look out for dirt and fuel vapours

The fuel filler lock can dry out through contact with fuel vapour during refuelling. It is good to treat the fuel filler lock with a special lubricant now and again, which is also available in the Car Lock Systems webshop.

How does the mechanical fuel filler lock work?

The lock is comprised of little plates or detents. Only when all the detents are assembled in the right order, will the associated car key turn the lock. This is because the mechanical construction of the lock has exactly the same combination of positions as the recesses in the car key. These dimensions (depths) are converted by the manufacturer into an indirect key code. This code forms the ‘DNA’ of each car lock or key. Car Lock Systems supplies car keys – and locks to the right code.

Mechanical key code

With a broken fuel filler lock, Car Lock Systems can provide a new lock to exactly the same key code as the original lock. Car Lock Systems can also determine the mechanical key code using a picture of the existing key. This is useful if the key code is not known.
