use to have the cap that had a 1/2'' drive but it eventually rounded out so now I have the one with a bunch of flat fin looking things on it. hand tight and tap a couple times with a hammer. done it this way on my truck and truck at work for years with no problems.

My brand new cap the 1/2" drive hole wallard out, I use a "chisel" and hammer to spin it tight, I used a crappy dura last cap/filter too, so it didn't seal properly with just hand turning, it's very tight now tho

A set of channel locks does great. Doesn't need to be super tight, but I get it hand tight, then turn it quarter turn with the channel locks

I use my oil filter wrench, it has a swivel handle so it is a breeze removing and installing the lid
