No fuel cap??

Just purchased a new '10 F150 FX4 Supercrew this past Tuesday.

Really like the truck, except for.....the lack of a fuel cap.

Guess there are not any gravel roads around Dearborn.....

How do I go about getting this disaster waiting to happen replaced with a good ole fashion, no frills, RELIABLE gas cap?

Has anyone already did this?

I've searched the site, but have not had any luck.

Why don't you like it? I have no problems with mine... nothing gets into there- at all. I didn't much care for it either at fist, but after a few fill ups, saw how slick it was. Just don't run it empty or you have to use the little funnel behind the back seat.

Me either. I love it.

If it bothers you, you can buy a locking gas cap from Ford.

That little plug is pretty slick. Think I'll order one just for those times traveling and staying at motels.

So that's what that funnel is for! I thought it was something to help with adding oil or something, like Porsche provides.

You need for adding gas with a gas can so you don't damage the filler tube since only a gas pump end will open the trap door inside to let in gas

I had a major mental block on this, too. The gasket on the gas door definitely does a good job of keeping the area clean.

EDIT: I believe this is the Mustang's filler. Can't find a good pic of one in the F150. Looks like "EasyFuel" might be the manufacturer???

Not a bit of dust behind my fuel door after nearly 20,000 miles including quite a bit of miles running dusty crushed granite roads in NC.

I wonder about snow/water this winter. I guess I'll find out.
