Cap space

The recent cold spell snapped the fuel door off our 7-year old car. While in at the dealer for an oil change, they investigated the price for repair.

Because fuel door technology is constantly subject to innovation and improved design, a new door would also require a new bracket and painting the entire assemblage to match the rest of the car. This can be done for a mere $240. We're wondering what our other options are.

While the protective cover to the fuel cap is admittedly a cosmetic piece, it does lend an air of sophistication to the vehicle. If you happen to discover the fuel door of your green Ford Focus is missing, don't look at us.
