You need to order the whole cap.

Obviously you could spend more on a genuine one if you want.

Thanks - very useful. Mine was already snapped when I bought mine. It appears as though the rubber twists over time and becomes weak - I cope with it fine because you have the handy hole to place the fuel cap in when you fill up so it's not going to disappear without the rubber string.

Just be careful the petrol and diesel caps are different - if that applies to you.
