Probably a stupid question, but then don't want to buy one if its not the right fit.

Filled her up with fuel today after picking her up and after opening the fuel lid there is no cap etc that you would usually find. I am assuming there should be.... any idea which one is best and will more importantly fit?

There are loads on eBay but haven't a clue which one will actually fit.

Thanks guys.

I'm presuming yours is a later Focus as they don't have fuel caps, they have the Ford easyfuel capless system

No problems it's so you can't put the wrong fuel in

Just make sure you have a black plastic funnel which would have come with the car in case you run out of fuel as you won't be able to get any in without it....there will be two types one for petrol and the other for diesel

I really wouldn't worry about the black funnel :turn-l: if You run out of fuel you will need to call breakdown to bleed the air from your fuel filter before it will start....unless the 1.6 tdci is different from the 1.8tdci....
