    Looks like a broken link. At least right now it is.
    My most recent Ford F150 had no gas cap from the factory. Open the door and fill 'er up!

    Neither my truck (09 f150)nor my wife's car (11 Explorer) have gas caps. Great idea. When I go to fill up my hunting truck I always try to stick the gas nozzle in before I remember to remove the gas cap.

    Looks like a good idea when it's new and clean. I want to see what it looks like after 200k and several winters and summers of dust and road salt. I can see a bit of dirt and dust, maybe water? getting into the fuel system. Give me a cap any day.

    I agree the longevity of it. What happens if it doesnt seal tighly ? And it will make the emisions test fail. It happens now to gas caps , but they are inexpensive Im thinking this replacement part would break the bank. Only time will tell..

    Sounds like a clever way to add $200 to the MSRP for something that really isnt needed.

    Give me a cap too.

    Probabally a nice idea for those "blondes" out there though

    Wow, I never realized that removing, and replacing a gascap was such a chore for so many that it needed to be replaced with something new.

    I have an Expedition for work with about 38k miles. So far it hasn't been a problem.

    A co-worker has one that he transports a dog in. His idles a lot to keep the dog cool in the summer. He's always having check engine light issues.

    Kind of a neat idea, but really, how hard is it to deal with a gas cap??

    The removal of the gas cap might go along with the EPA fuel containers we all love so much. Perhaps it's a way to help ensure the fuel tank is always sealed.

    Our 2011 Ford Escape has one and it was only a "problem" once... I was traveling with some friends and we stopped for gas. I started it filling, then went into the station. The pump clicked off and my friends spent 5 minutes looking for my missing gas cap.
