Thumbs up Hinged fuel cap and CA nozzle sleeves...this works great!

After taking delivery of a 2011 Jackpot, I stopped to refuel here in CA and discovered the rubber boot on the fuel nozzle does not fit down into the recess when the fuel cap is open. So, I purchased one of these clips and it works great! Here is a link for you:

That's cool but I can see it getting old after a few fill ups.

Default Meowww...

Okay, I guess this is a thread for California cats, so I'll go ahead and meow in too. I suppose the jackpot's a little different than my XR. I fill mine up one handed, no clips, no tricks. But mine does take a certain angle where it works best, without splashing.

Looks like a nice alternative to what I currently have to do. We have the same plastic covers here in St. Louis. Every fill up is a two handed affair which means you have no idea where the fuel level is as it gets close to the top.....too much hand in the way.

We have the same damn things in parts of WA, too. I was just spilling fuel on my new Crossroads this week, trying to hold that stupid thing. ----Helipro

Well, all it takes is finding the sweet spots. There are a few. Just move the nozzle around 'till you find them. There's a certain position and angle from each side which allows one hand fueling with zero splatter. I'd explain it further, but it's kinda difficult to describe. The way I found the sweet spots was to look for them, and gently move the nozzle 'till I saw no splatter and the nozzle stopped cutting off the fuel.
