Hi all,

My wife has run the fuel right down on my ST and I do not have enough to get to the nearest petrol station (8 miles!!).
I have got fuel in a plastic fuel can with nozzle but when I tried to use it the fuel just
out all over the road.

Anyone know how I can get over this please.
I have searched but can't find anything.

Cut the top off a 2ltr plastic bottle and use that as a funnel whilst getting someone else (ie the wife) to hold a pen or something in to push the little flap back to allow the fuel to flow into the tank, Does that make sence ?

I have a spare Ford funnel....pm me your address and I'll pop in in the post. Obviously its no good to you right now, but just in case it happens again.

Thanks Tony but after having another look I have found the Ford funnel tucked away in the car!

Are you sure its not tucked away behind your tyre inflater ?

After a good look around the car I have found the Ford funnel so thanks for this. The plastic bottle and pen did work though so good to know if you are stuck.
