    Capless design is great if you live in the city – if you spend a lot of time driving the dusty roads of Montana, it’s a horrible idea. Fine dust gets into the gas tank – had to replace the fuel pump after just a few years. Engineers need to consider ALL driving conditions when coming up with a new and ‘improved’ design.

    I have a capless filler on my 2017 Buick Invision. What a pain in the a–
    While fueling nozzle got stuck. Later on another occasion when pulling nozzle out the top flapper came off the spring assembly and dropped down inside pocket. What a design. Looks pretty flimsy to me. Wound up pulling a plastic baggy over it to go on a planned trip.

    First time I had a look at my capless fuel filler. My first thought was possibility of dirt or water. Does not look very positive to me. Outside flapper seal seems pretty flimsy for something that will be used as much as these will. Didn’t have my rig a month until while fueling, nozzle got stuck. Had quite a time pulling it out. Don’t know whether or not I damaged it? However on next fill up top flapper came off and fell down into filler pocket making it harder to insert nozzle. I don’t care too much about new fangled peice of engineering. More trouble than it’s worth. I go to dealership Wednesday for a complete new filler tube. Have been driving it with a couple of plastic baggies pulled over it to keep dirt and water out. Had this not been covered under warrantee cost would have been around seven hundred dollars according to dealership.
