http://m.ebay.com/itm/IH-Farmall-Triple-Baffle-Tall-Gas-Fuel-Cap-B-C-H-M-Cub-300-350-400-450-Original-/172372043201?nav=SEARCH

I got a kick out of this. Sorry if it is a fellow forum member, but I would think most have more sense than to try to sell a free gas cap for almost $30.

I especially like the "Just what you need to set your Farmall apart from the rest, and the easiest upgrade you'll ever make!" line. I sure hope no one buys this thing.

That is actually one of the old triple baffle caps. It was on some of the later tractors and available from dealers as an accessory. These were all to be replaced by the new free caps.

Yup, I actually received three of these free from IH.
Whenever I see these go up for sale I always wish I could shout through the listing "don't do it, you get it for free!"

I believe these go back to the 1950's. (Jim?) Dad had an H and an M at the time and got two. They did reduce the amount of sloshed out fuel. Vern
