Calling all 07 foci owners ... I've got a question for you

I have a stupid question. I don't know whether something's wrong with my car or I'm going mad. I have an early build 07 focus - 10/06 build date.

My question for the 07 foci owners is this - is there a metal flap in your fuel filler pipe? I seem to recall that mine had the flap and that it went missing one day. I took the car to the dealer for this to be looked at - they ordered a new pipe - and when it came - they saw it had no flap - and thus claimed that my car is fine in that the flap is gone.

Did the 07 focus have a flap in the filler pipe, or am I insane? I know that the 07/08 mustang and fusion don't have the flap (had a fusion for a week, and looked on a mustang tonight) Perhaps it was a mid year change? I don't know. I'm going mad here.

You are probably thinking of a previous car. It's a "phantom image" that's imbeded in your brain. My '05 doesn't have the flap and I suspect your '07 never had it.

OK, you made me go out and look at 9:35 PM MDT. My Focus has a build date of 11/28/2006. There is no flap in the fuel pipe.

My '93 Escort GT did have a flap.
