So Ford is getting rid of gas caps like we know, they will just have a flip lid. On one level I like the convenience and I like that the hole seals around the fuel nozzle to prevent gas fumes from escaping, but...

I don't see that these caps are lockable. I think most car owners at some point in their life has gas syphonned from their tank at some point and this lid doesn't provide any protection from that. As the price of gas increases I expect the number of cases of gas theft will likewise increase. With that in mind, I hope Ford has some locking mechanism in place already or will soon.
