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

This is one of my favourite feature on our vehicles.....

I like having the secure feeling that I control what goes in and out of my fuel tank....

I like having security of a fuel door controlled from inside the vehicle...

Nothing going in the tank or out of the tank that I don't know about....

I still love having this feature and find the security it gives is very important.....

Nothing going in the fuel tank that I don't know about.......

I would rather have this feature than the capless fuel systems that are on many of the new vehicles.......

I have heard that many capless fuel system many motorists wonder if the rain can get into the fuel system......

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........
