Trouble is that anyone REALLY wanting your gas is gonna get it, and they won't waste time/effort worrying about filler caps/siphons when the exposed bottom of the tank can easily be drilled, allowing gravity to do the rest far more efficiently and with less personal risk to the a-hole douchebag that has just ruined your day/week/month...i also forgot to mention there are numerous locking gas caps out there available for those looking to keep things more secure !
here is one right from Ford for $25
Nope can't stop a drill. But to answer some questions asked here from what I was told about these capless filler necks, there is a ball like valve that will let the fuel by but not a hose to siphon what's in the tank.I can't stop someone with a drill. I can convince a common thief to move on to another truck from mine over extra 5 mins to drill my tank vs putting in a siphon on an unlocked tank.
I didn't know such thing existed. Where did you get it from? I'm Googling that.Bought the Ford locking filler neck plug last night. Works great, isn't much more effort. Gives a bit of peace of mind that someone won't just dump something in there to screw with the truck.

But, most crooks are on a very limited time budget - they want to get out fast.I can't stop someone with a drill. I can convince a common thief to move on to another truck from mine over extra 5 mins to drill my tank vs putting in a siphon on an unlocked tank.
You hang onto it. I typically put it in my pocket - it's quite small. That way i can't forget it, and if I forget to put it back in, i can just do it when I stop again.Does it have a tether so it doesn't get misplaced when your filling up the truck? Or do you just hold onto it until your done filling up?
