About Fuel Filler Flaps
The Citroen fuel filler flap is a flap or covering which conceals the hole where you put the fuel into a vehicle. The fuel filler flap protects and covers the top of the pipe that connects to the petrol tank.
Usually made of plastic, aluminium or steel, fuel filler flaps are often mounted on a hinge or function with a spring mechanism. The fuel filler flap looks a bit like a miniature door and can be located on either side of the vehicle, towards the back, often on the quarter panel or rear wing. Usually lockable, sometimes linked up to the car's central locking system, the fuel filler flap gives peace of mind when leaving your vehicle parked unattended.
The Citroen fuel filler flap serves to prevent dirt, dust and other unwanted debris from entering the fuel pipe and potentially clogging up and damaging the filters. It also functions to stop fuel from spilling, leaking and evaporating out of the vehicle. The Citroen fuel filler flap also prevents others from accessing your fuel supply and siphoning the fuel.
Usual reasons for replacing this part include damage to the fuel filler flap or the opening mechanism. Purchasing a Citroen fuel filler flap will ensure the part fits perfectly with the make and model of your vehicle.
- Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
- The Citroën 2CV Safari had some crazy extra features. It was a four-wheel-drive vehicle, and Citroën decided that four-wheel drive meant that it would be better to have two engines...one at the front and one at the back. The fuel cap sticks out of the driver's door, and the tank was right under the driver's seat!
- Thanks to Citroën, the French driver Sebastien Loeb is the single most successful driver in the entire history of the World Rallying Championship. Nine consecutive driver's titles were won by Loeb in the time between 2004 and 2012, driving cars such as the Xsara, the C4, and the DS3.
- The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
- French president Charles de Gaulle's life was saved by Citroën not once, but twice. In 1961 a Citroën DS managed to stay intact despite there being a bomb made of plastic explosive, dynamite, oil, and nails. It even managed to drive away from the scene. In 1962, de Gaulle was attacked again, this time with machine guns, but the Citroën again managed to get away from the would-be assassins.
