Guest Post - Easy Fuel Cap

The Ford Transit Fuel fill does not work with the larger fuel nozzles used at truckstops.  You must use the normal size diesel nozzle used for cars.  If the nozzle doesn’t fit completely into the hole, you shouldn’t use it. If you need to add fuel from a container, there is a specially sized plastic funnel provided with the unit that will allow you to add fuel. Don't use the funnel with a direct fill pump!    Here is some interesting information about the easy fill that  I found this on the web. 

"The technology behind Easy Fuel adds extra layers of security behind the external fuel filler opening to inhibit forced entry and syphoning.  Easy Fuel’s spring-loaded flap is held closed by two latches that can only be released by a standard-size fuel nozzle. When the proper nozzle is inserted into the filler neck of the system, the latches release and the nozzle pushes the spring-loaded flap to the open position.  When the nozzle is removed, the flap is automatically and firmly closed by the spring. 
Easy Fuel also has a patented inhibitor designed to prevent improper fuelling and syphoning.The inhibitor consists of a fuel nozzle detector that guides the nozzle to the opening. If a nozzle or foreign tube of a different size – a diesel nozzle or plastic hose, for example – is placed in the filler neck of a petrol-powered vehicle, the latches will not release. For a diesel-powered vehicle, the inhibitor will keep out the smaller nozzles. 
 Another deterrent in Ford vehicles stems from its refueling vapor recovery system. The purpose is to prevent vapors from escaping during fueling, but syphoning efforts are also thwarted because it closes automatically after the process starts by detecting the pressure of liquid fuel as it passes."
