Sounds like a plan.

Sorry guys, but I can't help but laugh at all this.

Yes MDBones you have a gas Jeep, which if you know anything about diesel it attracts dirt and dirt is not your friend. Have fun at the gas pumps every week.

Re: Fix for capless filler

I will have a green diesel cap tomorrow to install. I spent less than $100 for a piece of mind. I know that this type of fuel pump does not handle any dirt at all. Coming from a Duramax I know this first hand.

The fact is the fuel door does not seal well against water, dust or dirt. Our friends from Oz (and a large percentage of them who actually get their GC's dirty) have posted several pictures of what gets past the fuel door gasket. If you have a concern about stuff like that then you wouldn't want that getting into a gas filler nozzle any more than you would a diesel filler nozzle, right?

You can spend your money on your setup and I'll be perfectly happy with my spray can cap. I've been using it for the better part of a year and it works perfectly. The nice thing is that I can pop it off and pop it on my next Jeep. If by chance Jeep redesigns the filler nozzle by then, well, I'm not out anything.

I spent nothing for a little peace of mind, so don't blame me for laughing.

Re: Fix for capless filler

You spend over $40k for a vehicle and you are worrying about less than $100. The gas type Jeep uses a fuel pump in the gas tank and is not a high pressure fuel system. Working with diesels for most of my life and Aviation our wonderful fuel filter does not filter everything. The wonderful thing this is your choice.

I don't throw my money away needlessly. There are better things to spend it on. The wonderful thing is... if you want to, that is your choice.
