I was washing my 1.6TDCi C-Max which has the new easy-fuel system (which in my experience is anything but!), and some soapy water entered the drain hole under the fuel nozzle inside the filler flap.

Does anyone know if this drains into the tank, or elsewhere? I'm concerned I may have contaminated the fuel supply, and might need to get the tank drained.

Thats what the fuel filter is for, It separates any water from the fuel also. Some have a drain on the bottom
you should do that every few months anyway.

Fuel filters do tend to get neglected though. Sister went through 4 services with the same filter i fitted.

Nobody changed it or even asked if it needed doing.
