Exclamation gassing her up

does anyone else have problems at gas stations? sometimes i can't get the nozzle in far enough, and the pump won't engage. today i had to leave and go to another station. why did they have to put in such a fussy double flap capless system? i'd rather unscrew a cap and not have to deal with this. i like the car; it's great-looking, comfortable, has good power, ride, and handling, but some of the quirks are unnecessary, imo.

Zero problems here in Florida with filling up in almost 5 months of ownership and 5,000+ miles. Never had an issue at any gas station.

I had a similar problem with my Lincoln with a capless fill port. I determined on my Lincoln that the individual gas pump nozzle had a one inch piece missing from the end of the nozzle (where the gas comes out). This made the nozzle have a smaller diameter and my Lincoln wouldn't auto unlock the gas fill port with a too small of diameter nozzle. I went to a different pump at the same gas station and everything worked fine. Maybe you had the same issue.

Yes, it's 50/50 for me. Some nozzles are fine, others need to tilt it to just the right angle. It's annoying.

It reminds me of the Tesla video: of the individual trying to fill the car at a gasoline station.
If you can't figure it out, well ..........
