Does anyone know if the fuel flap has a holder
for the fuel cap as I can't work it out? any other car
I've had has a fuel cap holder so surely the Up! must have to?

The Lupo's and NB remain attached on a piece of rubber string


Is it not the same in the Up? I'm bound to put it somewhere safe never to be found again

There are a couple of notches on the fuel cap which allow you to attach it to the edge of the outer filler cap cover. It seems a bit of a clumsy design but it works.

Please be very careful when taking pictures of open petrol fillers. The use of flash could cause a spark to ignite the petrol tank and there'd be an explosion.

Glad I'm not the only one who never knew about cap holders!! I thought that was what the rubber bit of hose was for and have always just let the cap dangle....education is a wonderful thing

Hmmm, I never knew that either! Is it a female thing do you think? Or are we just a dopey trio

Makes me feel better than I'm not the only one. Hubby knew, daughter didn't (she's only been driving for just shy of two years tho!)

Well some of us !!!OK maybe me
do not read the manuel that comes with the car as we just like to get out there and enjoy it, and if we get petrol in it who cares where thecap hangs

But have my trusty book to hand but no where does it say "CHECK SUNROOF FOR LEAKS"
