Is the opening of your vehicle's fuel door controlled from inside or outside of the vehicle...

Our Hondas both are contolled from inside the vehicles..........

I like it that way, I find it safer that way.......

Tell me how you see it............

docdeeGB says " Inside on both vehicles, not the best location on the juke. often catch it with my foot upon exiting the vehicle."

That not a good thing to happen.......

In our Hondas it has never happened and we like having this feature........

UKGraham says "Outside but there's an interlock that won't let me open it until the engine is off. "

I rather have our fuel doors controlled from inside the vehicle like it is with our Hondas rather than like many of the new vehicles today which have capless fuel systems.......

I have seen my future son in law and my daughter's new 2015 Ford Escape with it's capless fuel system and it is not for me...

I like the fact that our fuel doors on our Hondas are controlled from inside the vehicle..........more secure feeling for our family......that is my feeling anyway....
