An engine light also went on. So, I finally took it in.
Took ford 4 days, but they did supply me with a loaner (mind you - took me 90 min to get a car....a local rental car co had to pick me up....yada, yada...)
They repaired everything, and "as a courtesy" put the gas cap issue as a warranty item but inferred that we broke it. I've been filling cars for 35 yrs+, and this is the first time an issue like this (or any gas cap or filling issue) has happened to me. Bottom line - this was/is a design defect or part defect....the inner flap must have broken off and wedged itself in the filler neck.
Anyway - fine...but, the fix is half-assed...take a look (attached).
Ford service if your monitoring - please contact me.
