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............

Sneakers55, my future son in law and my daughter just bought a new 2015 Ford Escape.....nice vehicle......

That 2015 Ford Escape has a capless fuel system which I am not sure I really like....

I wonder what can be put down this capless fuel system.....in liquid form to cause harm....

Our vehicles have fuel doors that are controlled from inside the vehicle......I like that much better....

Controlled from the outside by the person doing the refueling flipping the access door open. My vehicle has Ford "EasyFuel" where the filler inlet is covered by interlocking projections until a unleaded gas nozzle is inserted. It is highly resistant to siphoning (if there's any of that going on with $2 gas on nearly every corner in the red states). The only downside is you have to use a special funnel provided with the vehicle to refuel from a jerry can.

Tucsonhomes says " Inside or outside "

Inside meaning a cable is pulled from the inside of the auto to release the fuel door opening on the outside of the vehicle.....

Outside meaning you just open the fuel door..........nothing else....

Just so we are all on the same page here.....
