About Fuel Filler Flaps

The Mercedes-Benz 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 Mercedes-Benz 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 Mercedes-Benz 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 Mercedes-Benz fuel filler flap will ensure the part fits perfectly with the make and model of your vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz trivia

  • Karl Benz founded the famous car company. He is not only credited as the maker of the world's first practical motorcar but also has the distinction of being the first person ever issued with a driving license (local citizens kept complaining about the noise and smell of his Motorwagen, and so he needed written permission to drive it).
  • The longest sedan vehicle available in today's car market is the S-Class Pullman, at a mind-boggling 6.5 metres long. Bear in mind that the average length of a sedan is only 4.7 metres!
  • The Popemobile is a Mercedes Benz M-Class SUV. It's not a standard model, however, and has some added features like an inbuilt oxygen system and bulletproof glass.
  • Mercedes are responsible for a lot of 'firsts' in their long history, including the world's first production of a diesel car. Very impressive, but it only had three wheels. Production stopped pretty quickly in the late 1950s.
  • Ever noticed that you've never heard a Mercedes rattle or make any kind of squealing sound? You never will either, because all of their vehicles are welded in up to 10,000 places! You're not going to find a loose nut or bolt rolling around.
