REXAZZ2 has a spectacular aura aboutREXAZZ2 has a spectacular aura about
Frozen Capless Fuel Filler 2018 Coupe

Temperature has been 10C (50F) and its been raining pretty much steady the last 2 days
Today there was a flash freeze and temperature is now -8C (17F)
All that in about 12 hours
I stopped to fuel up and the gas nozzle wouldn't open the capless filler
A quick call to the dealer and they suggested trying to squirt some gas line deicer in around the flap
I was pretty much out of gas by this point
After a hour it was still frozen
I used the plastic funnel that sits atop the spare tire to force my way in
A healthy dose of gas line deicer to a full tank thinking who knows how much water has made its way to the tank
Service adviser tells me there is an update rubber flap for the filler door
All the fun a guy can handle on a drive home Friday night
