They were both Shell, since I only use V-Power.

The station that didn't fit was in downtown Toronto at Richmond and Parliament (first time getting gas there), I usually get my gas at the Shell at Yonge and Green Lane in Newmarket since its close to my home and its always a bit cheaper.

Temps definately were not an issue here in t.o. The last few days. It was 12c here yesterday!
Today I went to my usual gas station and it worked fine. I believe that maybe the other gas station had a thinner nozzle and it was not unlocking the latch.

powermax I'm going to try a different gas station today maybe there was something wrong with that nozzle.

Trouble getting gas, the easy fuel metal latch would not open!!

Went to get gas when I went to put the noozzle in the metal part of the capless system would not open. I had to shove the nozzle really hard to make it open. Anyone ever had that experience?

Update** Today I went to my usual gas station and it worked fine. I believe that maybe the other gas station had a thinner nozzle and it was not unlocking the latch.
