There are a lot of posts about the short gas cap tether but no one has produced a solution that works for everyone.

My gas cap tether was 5 inches. If you order the part number 52030377AB, it will give you a gas cap for other fiat chrysler vehicles. The new tether is 7 and 3/8 inches long. Remove the tether from your fuel door using a trim removal tool (those quarter panels can warp if you get too aggressive), remove the other end from the cap and put the tether from the part number above on your gas cap. It is the same style tether with the same exact ends. The length is the only difference. The gas cap for the part number above is around 15 bucks and this took all of 1 minute.

The lanyard on the JT is the longer one. It's almost too long, in fact.
Anyone wanna trade?

I’ll bite. I have a 21 sport S 80th anniversary. Didn’t come with the factory fuel door, but I added it, and yes, now my tether is too short.

thanks for the part number.

Same. Our 2020 Freedom Edition didn't come with the nicer fuel door, so we added it. Also left with a tether that's too short.

Thanks for the part number.

I have the factory fuel door and removed my short tether completely. Didn’t know I had the option of getting a longer one. Thanks!

I looked at this gif several times in order to understand what it had to do with this thread or the comment it is in reply to. Then I recognized what it is and it all makes sense. My wife asked me why I was chuckling to myself uncontrollably like an idiot.

Greatest mod yet! Ordered the new gas cap, part #52030377AB and swapped out the tether. Not sure why it made me so happy, but it did! Thanks for the tip! BTW it's $13.58 on Amazon.
