Afternoon, Could do with some advise ref fuel filler cap and the IVA. My understanding is the filler cap can't be in the boot so needs to be external,and tethered. Thinking of putting a 2" classic type on, this has the snap clamp type clip to secure , would this pass the IVA? Are there any conditions it has to meet ref fitting flush, upstanding a few inches?
If the boot is not a boot, in other words has not been boxed in to create a storage space then the cap can be under the boot lid. If above it needs to be radiused all around to a minimum of 2.5mm, but a hinge type cap is classed as tethered. Tank must be able to breath, some classic type caps do not have a vent.

Have a look at Steve's 'Norfolk Build' thread on next page. He has photos of his IVA test (page 4) with what looks like an Aston style cap fitted and he had a first-time pass. So could be worth sending him a PM to see where he got it from? (as most would fail on height and radiused edges.)
