Hi Guys,


I'm in the unenviable position of a low tank and trying to top up from a can of 'mower' fuel. Don't have a nozzle on the can, just a funnel. Does anyone know how to get the fuel past the 'anti-tamper' device in the filler neck?


Thrusts a must.

You can buy an adapter type funnel for a few pounds on E bay my Wife has a Ford and it is standard supply along with the tools /jack and spare tyre
which you do not get with a Porsche

Land Ro er supply someth8ng similar too.

You could try the wooden / plastic spatula handle in the filler neck alongside the funnel, Ishtar be sufficient to push open the filler gate
