I have now found that the proper number for the Avanti is a bit of a pain to utilize..............Stant number 10623 non locking cap is smooth with no outside serrations and is large to get ones fingers to turn it........Number 10491 is a locking cap and is smaller so no problem with your fingers...........but for those who do want a non-locking cap i have found that Stant number 10640 is a direct fit...and it has raised finger grips.....a breeze to put on and take off.

The caps are all vented anti-surge. I did some detective work with the Stant site and others...........then called Stant directly to make sure.........good to go.........so if you want a non lockable cap go with 10640 or l0491 if you want the lock.

Good detective work...I'll look into the 10640. The 10623 is a pain to remove since it has no serrations to hold onto.
