Forgive me for not knowing the technical term in having a serious mind blank :-P

Basically I bought some red x diesel and now I'm stumped.

With Ford having that special insertion point that will only accept the correct fuel pump, I am unable to squirt me stuff into the tank.

Anyone know how to get it in or open the old girls hole?

Fair bit of innuendo there but hope someone can help.

Many thanks x

The car would have come with a funnel which you insert to open the hole, located either in the glovebox or spare wheel well (at least it is on the Fiesta, can't vouch for the Focus!).  If you don't have one of these you probably need to get one!

 

Is the phrase you're looking for 'pump hole'? :rolleyes:

This is the petrol one-

The diesel one is white and the pipe is smaller to fit the narrower pipe on diesel cars.

You've got me thinking now. What the hell is this thing actually called?!

P.S. My funnel was in the glovebox when I bought my car used.

Possibly the "fuel neck"!?!?
But "squirt hole" sounds good.... Lol

Mine also came with a funnel, also found in the glove box
And to be honest I had no knowledge of what it was until now. I never took the time to study it and work out what it was as I haven't needed it...

My funnel came with the car, Sealed in a plastic bag under the spare wheel and yes it is white i have a diesel. Never had to use mine but i did however test it once it does not completely open it stops flush with a yellow cover of some sort on the inside of the fuel filler pipe.

 

or just a screwdiver [for eg]  long enough to open the flap...just a thought -_-

 

I don't exactly know how it works and after trying it i came to the conclusion the exact size of the funnel seem to act like some sort of key therefore i doubt a screwdriver would work as it isn't the correct size.

 

Anyways Ford wouldn't be so daft to ditch a classic filler cap that works perfectly fine for something that open with a screwdriver...

You use the filler tube if you want to add additives otherwise it wise pour out the safety hole
