Say Goodbye to twist-off fuel caps

capless fuel filler

The twist-off fuel cap will soon be so yesterday.

Ford has announced that it is moving towards the use of a pressure-operated flap instead of a removable cap. The automaker is currently eliminating conventional twist caps from its vehicles starting with the 2008 Lincoln MKS and eventually removing the traditional caps from all of its lineup.

A flap that opens under pressure from the gas pump nozzle will replace the screw caps. The flap will fit snugly to the nozzle to stop fumes from escaping, which should be great to reduce pollution. The fuel-filler door, however, will still be around.
