Stihl is really screwing things up here. Consistency is key to retaining customers. They don't seem to be able to make up their minds about which cap they want to use. First it was the D flip cap (what happened to A,B and C?), then it was the E flip cap and now they have a screw in cap. Make up my mind already.

i still like my d flip cap. while i have some minor issues with it when extremely hot i have found i can just force it closed with no problem.

the cap always turns completely closed but sometimes the d part doesn't want to flip down with ease so one day i just got rough with it and it works fine. never broke it or anything. so now the few times it gives me issues i just get rough with it.

disappointed to see they are going back to a screw on cap.

them caps was the dumbest thing they ever did, was nothing wrong with the screw caps, they don't need to reinvent the wheel.
