Did you notice the quotation marks I placed around "fix"? I'm not fixing anything, nothing's broken. LOL... stick a cap on it and quit worry about it.

As I stated in my earlier post, most all vehicles have a vapor recovery system designed to capture gas fumes before they can vent to atmosphere. Topping off can overwhelm the system's ability to function properly.

In older vehicles, I don't think it ever caused issues. However, with the newer cars and all their emissions/safety systems, it can cause issues.

Re: Capless Gas Tank Stories

Seems like this was covered pretty thoroughly in other posts, even with a cap buyable on Ebay. I don't have Oz dust to deal with like you Aussies or the Jeepers out West, but to me, it's been no problem, no issue. Love the convenience.

Re: Capless Gas Tank Stories

When you pump gas out of a nice cool underground tank on a hot summer day and drive only a few miles home it will expand and could leak out.

I've seen it happen even after i told them not to spill gas on there new driveway i just paved.every time they said "but i just topped off my tank"
now they have a hole in there drive!!
