Sounds like a dumb question but I can't figure out how to open the lid at the gas filler. Just got the car yesterday

Its a push latch.
push the fuel door in to open, push the door in to close.
Also, there is no gas cap.

Also, there is a special fuel filler nozzle hidden under the trunk carpet just behind the driver rear seat (fold down the rear seat to access). You need that if you ever need to add fuel from a gas can.
I just accidently discovered this feature watching a Lincoln online video.

Now you have an answer. You might have been to excited to read the manual but its understandable. ;)

That would suck if they forgot or if you lost the nozzle attachment when you are stranded without gas....

I thought I read the manual in detail. I learned what kind of fuel, how to insert nozzle, what to do if you run out of gas etc. All these answers were after the lid was opened. Couldn't find anything on how to open the lid. Now that I have the answer I really feel dumb for not trying that.

doesnt it suck when you get a new car and you spend hours looking for the fuel cap release latch to find out you just need to push the door to unlock it :D

we've all been there.

that happens to me sometimes.
coming from a honda i was so used to looking for the lever on the floor, only to find out there's a button on the dash around the leg area.

yeah no biggie and even more of a surprise to some when they realize there is no gas cap. Just stick in and and pull.

if someone is smart enough they can use a pipe that is the same size and everything like the nozzle on a fuel pump and feed the siphon hose through that pipe.

at least it just makes it that much harder for them, not many people will go out of their way to do this.

winter weather tips

The trunk lid of a Lincoln MKZ is nearly impossible to pry open, especially during the winter months. Last year, I used soccer net ties. However, the ties were already worn out and fell apart by winter's end. This year, I used a cut up power cord (like from an old cordless phone or similar)
