    Calling it a "Capless" system is raycist. You also sexually assaulted it's pronouns ramming that fuel filler so violently in & out so many times like you did.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars josh3326 says:

    I wanna meet the Ford executive that approved that design.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Whaley says:

    I gave you the thumbs up. But I do like the convenience of my capless fuel filler on the Focus!

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy G says:

    Would an evap leak like this mess with fuel trims values

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars twwtb says:

    The capless wonder. It looks like a sure way to get a lot of dirt in the fuel system.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars erry newman says:

    You can buy a gas cap for ten bucks on ebay for this system

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ArianKo Jefferson says:

    Perfect

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Robbins says:

    I’ve had my doubts about those cap less fuel filler systems every since they started using them… Glad to see how to do a quick fix/clean on them

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars danger ranger rob says:

    lol nice touch with the easy fuel funnel with all that smoke

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ping Pong says:

    Looks like a dirt trap – one of the filler cap's prime jobs is keeping dirt out. Dumb engineering.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars says:

    wow crap design award winner there.

    What better way to educate myself while also laughing my ass off! 👏👏👏👍👍👍

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rizzo Officially says:

    What kind of spray did you use to lubricate the seals?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Everywhere Auto Repair says:

    I have never felt so violated

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Led Sethlin says:

    For years I struggled with how to get that gas cap off. I would always have to ask the attendant to assist me. It made me feel like….. an ASS!

    Poop n laughter not grins and giggles

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thom Vogan says:

    The cap-less filler tube is the kind of idea engineers come up with when they're really high. Do us all a favor and lay-off the mushrooms

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Doe says:

    For my own personal car, I'd clean it a couple of times… then lose my temper with it, rip it out and put something with an actual cap on there instead. You're right, that is an absolutely awful design. All brought about so some lazy sod doesn't have to remember to screw something back on until it goes click.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BEAST_HUNTER_193 says:

    What kind of spray are you using?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Fanelli says:

    imagine paying some guy to jack off your fuel cap

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars je S says:

    have a fusion…same code. shop said it was charcoal canister…smoke test ect…wanted thousands…I replaced the purge valve and fixed it….known problems with the capless tanks on those cars

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HerrGans61 says:

    I have been putting up with this issue since I bought by 2012 Fusion used in early 2013. Got a scan tool just for clearing the check engine light. It's the only reason my light has come on every few months. I know it's the EVAP leak because the light sets as soon as you turn the key and the engine runs fine. Load up on WD-40 and keep the filler area clean.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin King says:

    Purge solenoids are incredibly common on these 2.5s (and alot of newer Fords mostly the 3.5 and 3.7 ) too, I thought for sure you'd end up finding it to be sticking open.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bulldogsv2 says:

    Same problem for the same car. It should have been a recall (one of many) for this model. Tried the one handed method, and it worked – until next time you got gas. I replaced all 4 feet of the fuel filler neck, since you can't just replace the flap assembly. Later models had an exterior door flap that closed with magnets and kept the dirt out (you are right about this being a N. E. geographical problem). Now find a 2012 Fusion with intermittent air conditioning PROBLEM (blows hot as a heater, and then it's fine). Fix Or Repair Daily.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Hann says:

    I put a
    Stant 10524 Locking Fuel Cap on it and it keeps the dirt out and never had a issue.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HomieHome says:

    i wish you were in virginia, seems like no ones heard of it or can’t fix it 🤦🏽‍♂️

    Good afternoon I have a 2010 Town and Country Touring am getting a Gas Cap code P0456, how can I result this issue

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kris Drinkwine says:

    Honestly,, I have never heard of a capless system. Guess I'm getting old. Still like my old points and plugs Ford truck. Can let it sit for a couple years, and it still starts. Gotta have straight gas though. Ethanol wrecks the power valves in the carb.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PastBlast says:

    2 words describe the manufacturer move to "easy fill" gas holes. "Revenue Stream!"

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl says:

    ford fix or repair daily. total junk. trade it in for a toyota.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars THEDRAGONBOOSTER8 says:

    They were only made for race cars .For the average car ,they should have a cap.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Adrian says:

    Mr. O says that the 2010 Fusion will be in the crusher at 14 years…I have a 2012 Fusion and hope I can get 14+ years out of it. I love this car and want it to last as long as possible!!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars adam0U812 Davies says:

    Is it still possible to syphon gas on a car with a capless gas tank ?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Savanah Rawlings says:

    What was the spray you used? I have the exact same issue with my car and want to fix it so I can get my car smogged and not fail

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BigLoo says:

    100% money back guarantee that they went to the capless system because people kept forgetting to put the cap back on 🤨

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tawfiq Ahmed says:

    Hey there,
    I have a 2016 ford fusion se with 75k mileages. I am having the same problem. Engine light came up with p0456 emissions evap leak. After the light came up after couple week I started having problem starting the car everytime I fill up gas. I have to start 5 times and hit gas paddle in order to start the car. I really need help! If anyone can explain me and how much would It cost to fix? Is both of the problem related to eachother? Much appreciated!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chicken Noogets says:

    I'm surprised he didn't go into an anti government rant over the gas cap

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Knowles says:

    cant you put a filler neck on with a cap on it ?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Abdullah Almamari says:

    My brother, what kind of testing and programming devices you use in the workplace?

    Was not expecting porn!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dutchman Kamstra says:

    The owner needs to keep that area behind the fuel filler door CLEAN! Accumulated dirt can easily get through and cause problems. NEVER had a problem with the capless fuel filler system on my 2010 Taurus that I've owned since new because I clean around the nozzle area and behind the gas door regularly. That customer's car is filthy!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JDW TheBullitt says:

    No not location related. Just had to do the same with Daughter's Tarsus in NC. Fixed the problem and the Check Engine Light cleared up. Dealership wanted $600 to replace the filler neck. For that, I will clean the filler every few months as necessary. NOT one of FORD's better ideas (as is the elimination of spare tires).

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Callis says:

    Hey i have a 2012 ford fusion and it has been dying for no reason. No check engine light is on it just cuts off. Any ideas what's wrong with it????
