Yowza, who makes a decent locking cap for a reasonable price for our trucks?

I believe mine is the same one. I have had it for a few years now with no issues also.

There are USB cameras that have cords several feet long (mine is 20 ft) and I'm wondering if one of these couldn't be passed into the tank to see something like this little paper seal. They have their own light so that the camera would work without external light sources. They withstand water just fine, but I'd guess that diesel may be a little hard on the camera. But they're only ~$20 which is WAY cheaper than dropping the tank. (You don't think it may cause an EXPLOSION, do you???) They're not easy to control once they're in the tank, but if attached to a coat hanger or something similar, you may be able to maneuver enough to get the job done.
