Re: Fuel Filler Cap

Just to bring this back up.
I had the exact same problem yesterday when I'd finished filling up the GP. Sometimes it seems to lock first time but yesterday I was there for ages trying to get the damn thing to lock. Put it in with the lugs matching the cut outs, turned about 1/4 till it clicked and turned the key but it still fell out. No idea what I did differently the time it stayed in...

Re: Fuel Filler Cap

I'm always having the same trouble, sometimes it locks straight away, sometimes I have to piss about. Seems like a "not very good design" to me.

Re: Fuel Filler Cap



I use to have this... but then I smashed the car up. And the new car doesn't do this.

Although I always found, making sure it clicks worked.

I wouldn't reccomend it, it's not good for your back..
