Can’t be a gas cap issue because they don’t have gas caps. Lol If that IS the issue, capless gas tanks have been around a long time and I’ve never heard of issues other than some people think they’ll get all kinds of dirt in them. Maybe the poster will break his silence. But he did say he wouldn’t talk about it!


The capless filler in my 2012 F-150 occasionally doesn't seal properly and throws a CEL. The fix is to go back to the gas pump and open and close the filler several times which usually fixes the problem. This is actually quite a common issue with the early F-150's with the capless fillers.

We just wont talk about the gas cap issue. (seriously, Ford????)

Gas Cap Issue?

The gas cap (yes, it has one for all those supposing otherwise)is on a plastic lanyard just like my 150 was, but this lanyard is too snug and wraps around your hand as you unscrew the cap THREE TURNS! It takes two hands to get it off and put it one. One hand to turn the cap and one to maintain the lanyard from winding around your hand. Very annoying. I agree! Why do we need a cap at all if capless fill works in so many other applications. Its ridiculous.

If you get the 10 speed transmission, the rear end ratio is not of great importance. It will just select a gear to get the same overall gear ratio. Then engine will have no idea what's happening past the crank shaft.

The only reason to go to the 4.XX rear end is if you need that last couple thousand pounds of tow rating.


I agree …. Get 3.55 gears if you’re getting a f250. If you get an F350 SRW you’ll have to get 3.73 gears. 4.30 is only of much value when you want the extra torque to start out from a stop with a heavier trailer on a hill.
