I'm curious how many of these little stamped details will actually end up in the production models.
I’ve had the same thought. I think it’d be pretty cool of Ford if they considered including these slight details on all reservations that transition into an order. We’ll see I guess.

Umm,my civic has one
Capless fuel fill.
My CRV has one and you cannot spray wash with the fuel door open...

Mixed feelings. No cap to lose, but no washout 'interior' either. Better not splash mud/river water up too high either.
My Civic has one and the water drains out a vent.Unless you hold a water hose in there it wont get water in gas tank. Designed that way for that very reason.I wash my gas lid all the time with it open,never a problem.

Besides you can buy a locking cap that fit those. Jeez

There's a door that keeps stuff out that only opens when you put the fuel nozzle in or the plastic one Ford provides.

That's cool, I hadn't noticed this!
I'm not the biggest fan of the newer Easy Fuel filler necks. Doesn't bother me to take the cap on and off, it's a clunky and unnecessary "convenience" . As someone who has to constantly fill vehicles with a gas can, (auto auction and towing) they're quite annoying. Maybe 1 out of every 10 still has the funnel present
I think they're fantastic. I don't want to touch a gas cap.

Guess you haven't put fuel in any Ford in the last 7-8 years? My '13 ST had it, and all my Fords since. I'm not sure when they started on the trucks.
My '09 Flex had it. I'd imagine the '09 F-150 got it too since it was new that year as well.

Christ, nothing makes you people happy
I'm pissed that they're facing the back of the vehicle. COME ON FORD. THEY SHOULD BE HEADING FORWARD NOT BACKWARDDDDD!

I know, it's ridiculous.

Bronco makes me happy. Can't understand why you'd say this. It's just a comment on the feature. Others seem to have a solution to a valid point (except the orange mocha frappuccino).

Wait a second... are these the easter eggs?

What are those things under them? I hope the different models mean a future truck version and roadster version is in the cards, sales willing. Maybe those dots are numeric or something to indicate the timing?

The little Broncos are pretty cool. The cap less fuel filler is a non issue.

I’ve had capless fuel fill since 2013. When I drive my fiancées car with a cap it annoys me way more than it should.

Maybe I am paranoid, but cap-less spout is a vulnerability and yes my F150 is the same way. It bothers me too.

60 posts and we are still talking about the gas cap - it has nothing to do with the thread!

BTW - good find on the three eggs
