If I'm not mistaken, the fuel filler on your vehicle is locate at the center of the rear grille area just above the rear bumper. The fuel cap would have the Ford symbol on it. Once removed, one can then fill the gas tank. Typically the rear tailgate is open to allow for any excess spilling or clean up.


If it is overflowing then you have to put the spot in as far as it will go and pump gas slow so it will cut off automatically. Don't add more once it cuts off. If it's leaking around the spout you need a gasket between the spout and the car body.
