Cool Gas Cap

I need a new gas cap for my 1986 560 SEL. Are there any online places that sell the OEM style cap. I can find caps that will fit but they are the cheapies priced at under $5. Anyone have any idea what an MB dealer price is on these?

Was this the same high quality, heavy-duty cap that comes with the car from the factory? All the caps I have seen in that price range are not even close to the style or quality of the OEM cap.

If you need a new cap, its most likely just the rubber gasket contained in the cap. Buy the cheepie, and remove the new gasket and place it on your original cap.
