Are you trying to put gas in the tank from a gas pump or trying to pour gas in from a gas can?

Gas pump
Expert:  A. Penland replied 10 months ago.

The nozzle on the gas pump should push the flap open to allow the nozzle to fit into the filler neck. You can also take the funnel that should be in the rear cargo area of the vehicle and push the flap back with the nozzle. It is a plastic white funnel. Also, make sure you are using the proper fuel nozzle for the vehicle. There are a few out there that will not fit into a Ford filler neck, especially Diesel fuel nozzles.

We found the white nozzle, and it's working. We are at a chevron but when we checked the nozzle was smaller. Thanks we are back on the road. Thank you
