I was filling up my car in the place that has the gates of Hell(Even though they are getting better) and i saw the newest honda Civic and i found out that its gas cap pops open so you don't disrupt the air from the gas cover as much. What happens (i think you press a button inside and it pops open) and wouldn't the weight counteract the fuel savings you get?
Like ************* said, the OP is talking about something completely different. Please clafiry Shrek!
Well, not ALL cars as the Toyota FJ Cruiser requires you to manually open the gas door which is perfectly fine with me. The original purpose of the remotely opening gas door was to prevent siphoning but now that they have a sort of spinning valve type thing at the bottom of the tube, it makes siphoning impossible (I know because I tried, then researched why I couldn't siphon any gas). Since you can't siphon gas easily anymore, there is no need to have a locking gas cap or a gas door.
my wife's element is old school that way too. it is a 2004 but I figure that is still newer it is also the EX model so it has all the bells and whistles. no navigation but I think that is more of an add-on and not a package. we just got what was on the lot that she liked.
Be the change you wish to see in the world
