Why is so hard to find this for sale anywhere?
Mine leaks gasoline every time I fill up. It doesn't leak from the tank or anything just where the filler goes into the tank. I called my local Ford dealership and they wanted $244 for it!
The parts guy even said he has no idea why it's that expensive for such a simple part.
Everywhere I look online I can't find one cheaper than $145. Advance, O'Reilly, NAPA all don't carry it. I called a local junkyard and they had 3 New Edges in their lot and all 3 were apparently missing the fuel filler neck. I've got one more chance at another junkyard in town tomorrow and then I'm out of luck apparently. Definitely not paying $244 for the part. I would expect a part with a pretty decent failure rate to be carried by more retailers and not be so expensive for a simple part.
Any tips guys? Any negatives to not getting this fixed soon?
Edit: Also, could it be that the rubber gasket where the filler meets the gas tank is causing the leak? I've looked on forums and that was the more common problem with this kind of leak. If it is that the part is only like $20 from Ford.
