Re: 2014 Capless Fuel Filler Cap

I'm pretty sure it is related to the length of the metal coil on the pumps's filler spout. It the coil is too long, the spout can't reach deep enough to open the flap inside the neck. It happened to me the first time I tried to fill my Overland.

Re: 2014 Capless Fuel Filler Cap

So you gotta fumble a bit the first time, work the sides, and thrust it in deeper?

Sheesh.
