I have the dubious benefit in kind that is a company Mondeo - inherited as a new starter. It has a very bizarre setup where there is no fuel filler cap (apparently a selling feature?), but the flap on the filler doesn't lock when you do the c/locking either.. Is this not a potential for mischief? I can't spot anything stopping vagabonds posting things in etc. Is this normal, or is the fuel filler flap meant to lock in some way?

No.

The car has Easy-Fuel, it's meant to stop you mis-fuelling but it can be done.

Just make sure the small black funnel is in the car if you ever run out as the system won't take the nozzle from a fuel can.

Does it lock several minutes after everything else by any chance?

On my S60 the fuel filler locks ten minutes after you fire the central locking - presumably for leaving the car locked while a petrol station attendant pumps fuel into it, or some such situation.

unfortunately, the Mondeo has no locking mechanism whatsoever - volvos are safer, hence the security =)
