Not a big deal to me. You can buy a locking cap for it if you are in a higher crime area. I'd just as rather have the convenience of opening and pumping than having to unlock or remove a cap. Living in fear of 'what if' is too much effort for me, but I do live in a good community.

You need a special funnel to get into the gas tank (without a pump nozzle). I'd get the locking cap if I didn't have a garage at home and a secured lot at work.

Well yeah, first off you would need the special funnel to even try to steal your gas. That's the way these new gas nozzles are designed to be somewhat dummy proof if someone just expects to open your gas door and take your gas.

Home garage and secured work lot for me too so it's not a big concern. Until it happens the first time.

Falcon, never thought about problems the son could cause. My 2 1/2 year old is just getting into the "hey let's see what this does" phase.....

I'd be happy if the flap had a latch, but thats another story....If I was a thief, I'd be looking at pickups and things with a bigger tank than the Focus....you go to steal gas out of a Focus and pick one with a half a tank and you wont even get a ''jerry can '' full...lol
