Davo said this quite a while ago, and I couldn't agree more, what bloody idiot thought that one out!
Drive any distance on dirt and it is impossible NOT to get dirt in the tank. As soon as you press the fuel nozzle in to the filler, in goes the dirt!
I have been using foam between filler and door, hopefully just enough that it doesn't press the filler flap inwards, when closed.
However I will give the agi pipe plug a go, as some of you seem to be having success with that.
Thanks for the tips.
