2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Flimsy Fuel Filler Neck Surround

December 1, 2014

2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

Every time I go to put fuel in our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe I'm bothered by the flimsy piece of material used to house the fuel filler neck. I've talked about this problem in our long-term 2014 Volkswagen Passat and why I think it's disappointing, but in a luxury car like the Jag it's completely unacceptable.

The fuel filler neck is made out of a flimsy plastic, rather than a rigid plastic or metal. With the Jag, as with the Passat, heavy fuel pumps make the fuel filler neck sag, bending the filler neck and disengaging the pump handle. As a result, you can't leave the pump on to fill the car while you perform other tasks.

The angle of the filler neck is pretty extreme too, so if you get a pump with a short filler nozzle you have to lift up the pump with both hands and lean on the handle for any fuel to be dispensed. Not only is this annoying, but I'm also sure it looks pretty strange to other motorists.
