Use #18 for a Pocket Knife: Prying Open a Frozen Gas Cap

Ice Glaze covered front end of a truck with a brush guardI was in Northern Maine for the year end holidays and the gas cap on my Nissan Titan was frozen shut, making it impossible to add gas. Luckily I had a pocket knife just inside the drivers door of my full size truck which I was able to insert into the finger grab and pry outwards freeing the stuck door.


I didn’t use the blade but rather the entire small metal keychain knife that was passed down to my from my grandfather in the past year. I think I’ll keep that knife in the truck full time having earned its worth a few times already.
