Your gonna need to use your best judgement to get it off, just make sure you clean out the bowl of any plastic debris. Your local dealer should have them in stock. IIRC, I paid $28 for a new cap from my dealer.

I was thinking of drilling a hole inserting something to grab onto and getting it off.

definitely clean any plastic shavings out. at the moment im not home, so I'm putting things off for a few weeks. When I get to it, do the "blue" spring and the 6.4 banjo's

top priority is my HPO leak, but Im gonna get all the parts, EGR delete(plate), oil cooler rebuild, standpipes and dummy plugs, tuner once all the problems are fixed

can you drill a hole through it and get a screw driver that is long enough to go all the way through and turn it

Replace it with a billet aluminum cap. It will look better and you won't have this problem again. While the recessed top of the plastic cap will accomodate a 1/2-inch drive breaker bar or ratchet handle the fact that it is broken demonstrates the reason this should be avoided. Unfortunately the torque specification is not universally observed and a little too tight renders the capability of the recessed top a vulnerability.

Buy 2, I have spares for all 3, the two fuel and the oil on hand so will not get stranded with a broken part.

After geting the truck and doing my first services noted the questionable material and purchased them.

I have now replaced the oil and top fuel with bullet ones, looking for the lower fuel for a replacement one.

Any idea who sells these aluminum caps, preferably both fuel and oil caps?

I dont particularly like plastic anything on cars, seems to be weak spots

Drill a hole in the cap near the outer edge being sure not to get it all the way out to the threads and make it a decent size like 3/8". Then use a drift pin or a 1/4 ratchet extension and a hammer. Put one end of the extension against the edge of the hole so you can drive the cap in a counter clockwise direction. I just did this for a friend not long ago.

The oil filter cap and the fuel filter cap may be purchased individually at AMSOIL.com (AMSOIL By-Pass Replacement Parts, PN: BK1101 is the oil filter cap $98, BK1102 is the oil filler cap $51.50 but I don't believe AMSOIL has a fuel filter cap) and NUCMotorSports.com (Oil Bypass System, Stainless Steel Braided PTFE Lines, Parts and Accessories, $75 for oil filter cap, $50 for fuel filter cap, $60 for the oil filler cap). I think you may find some available on eBay too but the price with shipping is likely to be comparable...these aren't parts that folks use and then change their mind to sell later. There are other sources too I'm sure.
