This is not a TREMOR issue but I wanted to check with you guys. Anyone find the fuel cap tether frustrating? I have to finagle it
just right to get the fuel door to close each time, about ready to cut it loose.

Mine seems to swivel freely around the fuel cap, so as the door closes, it rotates out of the way. Maybe your's is stuck or jammed somehow?

Crud, that is what I was afraid of. Mine seems to always be in the way and the fuel door will not close unless I manually rotate the retaining ring around.

I've had to manually adjust its position each time.
Ugh! glad I am not the only one... its a small detail but surprisingly frustrating.

No issue here, take it to the dealer get them to fix it or if you are handy look to see if it is a simple fix that you can take care of yourself. To me, sounds like something is slightly out of tolerance or maybe just needs a little lubricant.

I've found it annoying but I just play with it until I get it right.

Never had an issue. Wonder what's causing it.

Mine is flimsy. It works but feels super cheap.... I miss the capless system that was on my Raptor....

I wish this truck had the quick fill my 2018 Raptor had. I hate having a fuel cap.
