Not something I've ever noticed on MN12's I see. Adjust the clip. Maybe someone forced the door open to siphon gas before?

i get told that mine is open sometimes... but i think when i do it is because i dont shut the door firmly. otherwise it just stays put.

kitty has a manual door, no issue there. i think with the newer cars 94+ its becasue of the way the console lid sits, i think if you lean on them hard enough it will trigger the gas door

Hmmm if that's true I must not lean on mine the right way then? I'll have to look at it and see if it seems possible. The only times i've found my fuel door open are a handful of times when I did indeed leave the flap open after filling up.

Maybe it's those NJ gas station attendants leaving the door open after they fill people up??? New Jersey still doesn't let you pump your own gas do they?

I don't know what the deal is but the local MN12's I see don't seem to have a problem. Their doors are always closed unless someone's filling it up with gas...
