      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Fuel Filler Cap

    Hi. I've had that happen only the once since getting the car (nearly 3 years ago). Its to do with the angle of the pump nozzle when you put it in the tank. I find if you put the nozzle in as far as it will go, then tilt it forward slightly it works fine.
  2. Fuel Filler Cap

    I've got a 58 plate petrol focus and its got what's called a capless fuel system. This means it does not need a cap, as there is a flap inside which closed over the hole. its held in place by what I can only describe a buttons which the nozzle off the fuel pump press to open when filling up. If you search for capless system on Google there's plenty on it.
