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.

Re: Capless fuel filler

Quite a few on eBay. I’ve just bought one.

Sorry, this was a reply to question about obtaining a space saver spare wheel and tools.

Ebay sellers seem pretty vague on details

There are only two sizes - one for petrol, one for diesel - irrespective of the make of car, as it is the garage pumps that have to fit all vehicles ( appropriate fuel of course)

Trusting youíve read the various posts about spare wheels - both the wheel and jack are different to all other Pandas if you have a four wheel drive version.

Re: Capless fuel filler

Yes. Ours is a City Cross and the seller said it had been tried on a Cross. So I’m expecting it to fit. It’s a complete kit.

Re: Capless fuel filler

The polystyrene tray and boot floor, are extras. The original tool kit came in a pouch, which was stored right under the drivers seat, completely out of sight.

Depends on the model and whether a space saver supplied. If no space saver, then for all except 4x4, the tools live in a polystyrene tray under the boot carpet, which also holds fix and go kit. Non 4x4s with a space saver, the tools and jack go in a rigid plastic insert inside the spare. Only the 4x4, when supplied with a spare wheel, has the tools in separate bag (because the 4x4 Jack is bigger and doesnít fit inside the wheel)

Re: Capless fuel filler

But rusty on the details now. Was a while ago did the development work on the AA multi-fit spare. There are rules for spare tyres, particularly space savers. Space savers are get you home/tyre centre at limited speed. MOT covers condition and tread depth, but The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 and other SI also cover wider specification. Mixing types and loading etc, which could be policed at a VOSA or police roadside check and would affect insurance validity.
