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.

Stop at a different gas station and try the fit again. Mine has always been seemless and if it felt different i would take it to a dealer asap so you dont end up stuck somewhere.
Temps definately were not an issue here in t.o. The last few days. It was 12c here yesterday!

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

Glad you had no problems at your normal station!
What was the brand of the two different stations? The different chains usually each stick with one supplier of pump and hose hardware but just wondering.

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.
