Emergency Fuel Tank Access

If you open your gas caps, you will see a single screw inside. This is the "anti theft" screw.
Personally.. I've removed this screw.

That way if I'm on a long ride and I lose my key, or break a key off in the fuel cap, or get a jammed fuel cap, I can remove the fuel cap with allen keys so that I can put fuel in the tank. I'm far more worried about one of these events happening than I am about having my fuel stolen.

If you do not remove this interior screw, you will not be able to remove the fuel cap with an allen key to fill it up if one of these issues arise.
