Fuel filler neck flap gone

I have a 2010 sport 4x4 and noticed the other day that there is no metal flap covering the fuel filler neck. Either there used to be one and it's now in my gas tank, or I'm not very observant and there never was one in the first place. It's still under warranty so I'm sure it will be covered.

What I'd like to know is... Anyone else out there notice this missing on their Rangers? Is it a big deal if it's not replaced right away? Do dealerships typically just replace the flap and call it a day, or do they need to open up the tank to get the one that fell in?

I drove a 2009 Escape for a company ride and there was no gas cap.
Just stuff the nozzle in and pump .

I have a 2010 sport and it does not have one. I had a 2006 Explorer and it did not have one either. I think they must have stopped it at least on 4.0's somewhere. My 02 did have one.

I guess I'm not very observant. I'm glad I checked here first before sounding like an idiot at the dealer.

Same here, I didn't no it was missing either till about a months later after I bought it. Someone got a big fat bonus for the cost cutting measure. Now that all the gasoline pumps nozzles on the planet are the same size. I guess we really don't need it.

Ya that's what we're talking about. I talked to a buddy who works in the garage at a local Ford dealer, and he mentioned that a lot of vehicles have a valve further down the filler neck.
