gas tank cap!
« on: August 20, 2014, 09:01:33 AM »
 Hello,

I have a Mio 50cc, love it so far. The only problem I have with it is closing the gas tank cap. I get it once in while but don't know if there is a trick to it. The manual says turn the cap to the right and push. Only works sometime for me. Any help? Thanks

Yes!  Another Mio owner!

I find that just lining up the cap and pushing it straight in works.  If you twist, sometimes it is hard to get it back open.

Yep, I just push the cap straight in, it twists on its own.

Thank for the quick response. I tried lining the cap up and push, but it doesn't work. The cap simply slipped. Must be some problem in side. Any thoughts? If the cap is broken, anyone had experience replacing it?

I find it easiest to line up the cap and press it in with my palm. It should make a slight click when it seats and latches.
