    You would think that it would be easy enough to do but I tried it and with the new "capless" gas cap the flap does not open when you push the cleaner in! Do I need to push with a screwdriver or something? I poured an entire bottle all over the ground and wheel doing it like I have done for the past 30 years of driving but not anymore!

    No funnel in my Charger. Just a air compressor. Oh well I will just get one and keep it in the trunk. Thanks anyway!

    How else would you put gas in your car if you ran out?

    Where did you find it? Am I looking in the wrong place? Can you post a pic please? Also in the past your gas can spout would fit into the gas tank hole.

    Is this 2016 cars? My 2015 has a regular screw off cap with a tether so you don't leave it behind.

    Must be a new thing. Our 2015 Challenger Hellcat has a "regular" gas cap.
    We have a Grand Cherokee with the capless system. They have really cheap funnels at most auto stores. Cost less than two bucks...
    Looks like this:

    Not worried about getting a funnel I just didn't know how to get the flap to open. And I have a 2015 Charger with the cap-less gas cap.

    Misunderstood...the flap won't open unless there is something the shape and diameter of the funnel...believe me, I tried! :eek:

    Can't post a picture now, car is hibernating for the winter. It's in the trunk, with tire compressor, amp, and battery.

    I think Chargers don't use a cap and Challengers do? (I may be wrong just own Challengers but seems it is that way.)
