I lost the key to my locking gas cap.

Any ideas on how to get it off.

Pull the tub away from the tank and take it to a lock smith?

Undo the hose clamps and pull the end out, I would just buy a new one and replace hose at same time.

There is a hose clamp inside the cab, remove it. Then remove the fill tube and take the tube and cap to the lock smith.

I threaded a body slide hammer into the tumbler and destroyed mine from the inside out.

How hard is it to remove the clamps, is it tight in there ?

A Oxy/Acetylene torch will have it off in a flash.
