    Hi, I would like to know if the fuel cap on this Vesta is original and complete. When I check others in the gallery I don't see any like that one, also does is meant it is older or younger of those in the gallery?

    It’s not clear from your photo whether there’s a safety release valve ‘core’ as here ...

    The SRV cap has a slot to accommodate a broad flat-head screwdriver.

    I can see that hexagon flats on your SRV cap could be a useful alternative to a slot to unscrew it.

    Thanks. Same arrangement as usual but hexagon flats on the cap nut instead of a slot. An improvement I’d say.

    @JP2 Looks good!
    Did you change the SRV pip while you were in there?
