Petrol Cap

This will probably sound really dumb and obvious but I was filling up with petrol today and realised that there's a place to stand your petrol cap on the top of the flap ... ! now how many people knew that? i bet if you didnt, next time you fill up you will be AMAZED

Re: Petrol Cap

Mine always falls off and rolls under the car I'm sure it's meant to sort of clip on if I remeber rightly, as isn't there a little hole for it to clip into?

Re: Petrol Cap

on mine the cap is connected to the flap by a plastic thing so i just leave it dangling while filling, maybe this is a later addition...

Re: Petrol Cap

I knew

But for other gimmicks and options not everybody knows, or hasn't discovered them yet:

- Steering wheel is height AND length adjustable (the length needs a bit more muscle to move all of the 5 or so adjustable centimeters)
- if you give the wiper-handle just a short pull towards you, the wipers go in automatic washer mode; a few wipes and they stop again.
- the boot-realease button positioned in the glovebox (yes, someone at a meeting here in holland did not know that)
- if you disconnect the battery, or disconnect the power from instument cluster, you'll miss 2km from your odo

That's also what i love about the Alfa's; there's always a surprise somewhere!


Only Crusoe got his work done by Friday
