Should my Polo fuel cap lock?

Should my Polo fuel cap lock?

Hi there, I've just bought a 2011 VW polo match- manual 1.2 litre. Just wondering should the fuel cap have a lock on it? Anyone can just push the flap to open it and screw off the lid...I didn't realise before I bought it. I had a 2005 Bora years ago and you had to push a button within the car to open it, I figured it would be the same with the Polo, but obviously not. Just wanted to see if I was missing something. Thanks!


Hi Eavan,

Have you tried it when the car is locked up? Some systems lock the fuel flap automatically when the car is locked.
