On a lighter (?) note, a friend told me he took his wife's Mercedes diesel for routine service. He said he was charged $83 for one gallon of DEF. Just be thankful we don't require "Mercedes DEF" in...

Actually I do this on my DEF filler. I have a piece of bright orange duct over the cap after almost putting my cetane booster in it. Also I make it a habit to always smell the end of the fuel...

I am not an expert by any means, but it seems it would HAVE to open, otherwise how would you get any gasoline in the tank.
I can't imagine you could break it (but I won't garuntee it). Look at where...

Yes, my 2009 most definitely had a capless filler. If I remember correctly the flap was fairly close to the top of the filler. It has to be close enough for the pump nozzle to open. Surely a long...

Don't you wonder what in the heck the designers and engineers are thinking (if they are thinking) when they come up with sort of Mickey Mouse way of doing things?
I wonder if they ever read the...

I used Techron in my 2009 F-150, but don't remember it spilling out.
You could try a funnel with a long spout to push the flap open.

I use mine very frequently. It was hard climbing in my 150 without it, but a LOT harder on my Super Duty that sits much higher.
That said, if I don't have the tail gate down it is easier yet to just...

Remember, do not take the "green nozzle" for granted. My first experience could have ended in tragedy! Gasoline was green and the diesel yellow.
Here in Georgia the pump color means NOTHING!

There are just too many unknowns yet. The 2017 sounds intriguing but I reckon I will wait and see more details, reviews, and reports. I will keep my 250 for a couple or three years more, then see...

I always add the additive (different brand than the ad, Multi-Lube) after I fill up the tank. Otherwise I would have to guess at the amount to use. It won't be mixed well initially, but I can't...
