Re: Capless fuel filler

Hopefully you can see the item in this pic including the water on it that it keeps out of the filler neck

Capless fuel filler filler neck opening tool

The funnel like thing that opens the filler neck if top up is required. Both my cars have one of these. You push it into the filler neck to hold the cap lock open. Its very difficult to add fuel as it comes out of a can faster than it will flow through this thing so a funnel and pipe are recommended.

Re: Capless fuel filler

This type of filler is fitted to Ford cars and others so let's not just say Fiat penny pinching. You cannot syphon fuel according to what I was told so in fact it's an ok system. Mine stays perfectly clean as did the filler on my 2014 lounge.
You can open the filler with fingers if you know the sequence, not something the opportunist would know though.

I keep the Jack, and tools under the passenger front seat.
Thanks Motorcyclist Colin thanked for this post

Re: Capless fuel filler

I must say that I like the cap less door
It's easy to use and quite speedy at the pump.
