Fuel Cap (quick one)

Just a quick question
When using the fuel cap do you have to use the key to close/lock it ?
All the other BM's we have you push the cap and it closes and locks , but on the 310 the locking part of the cap inside is not sprung loaded .

Yep. You have to leave the key in the gas cap, and turn it when you close the cap.

Thanks for confirming that's the way they are/work.
Had not had a chance to look at another one.

Most find the gas cap don't lock to easy so I put small amount of grease in the workings found that helps, I also put the strap of my glove thru the key ring then it keeps the cap back while filling the tank.
