Hi all, as the title suggests, I am looking for a sealed Gen 4 (2010) Outback manual transmission filler/dipstick tube extension that will raise the opening and vented cap above the engine.

For those of you who have the manuals, you're likely well aware of how low the filler/dipstick tube is, and well aware that the dipstick "cap"/puller is a vented "cap" that doesn't keep water out.

It's not like I drive through ocean tidal pools like this a lot...

But, yes, I drive through ocean tidal pools (and other pools of water) a lot. So far, no issues, but I am worrying that one day, I'll go too slow, or drive through something too high, or stop too long.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Robert

maybe get a new stick, or one from a wreck, and modify it yourself?

If need be, I can see if a friend can weld together two tubes and two sticks. I just know someone else already did this (used to be in the group I think). It was their warning about the breather cap that prompted me to look at mine. They had a whole snorkel setup and all too.
