2013 Ford Focus ST: Still Appreciate Ford's "Easy Fuel" Filler
June 20, 2013
Ford introduced its first "Easy Fuel" cap-less fuel filler back in 2008. We've tested a lot of Ford vehicles with it since, including our long-term 2009 Ford Flex, 2010 Ford Mustang GT and 2011 Ford Explorer. Our 2013 Focus ST is the latest.
This Ford-exclusive feature won't change your world, but I still like the convenience of it. There's no cap to unscrew or hang while fueling. Just insert in the gas pump nozzle and start fueling.
The one possible downside to the Easy Fill design is that it won't accept typical gas can nozzles (for when you've run out of gas on the side of the road). But there is a special funnel that's included with the car (in the spare tire compartment) to allow you to use a gas can.
