Just an other chapter in winter driving woes should you be in a area where temperatures are below the freezing point for 24/7 for days on end.Washing your CT at a car wash the following can happen. Fuel door frozen shut and does not open in the normal manure, a few fairly hard hits with the hand will open it. The fuel cap tether which is attached to the fuel door then on a swivel around the fuel cap, the swivel area on the cap can freeze up thus not allowing the removal of the fuel cap (bin der done dat.) The following has worked for me, before leaving the car wash open the fuel door and with a towel mop up the moisture also all the rubber door gasket seals in paticular the hatch back door seals to prevent freeze up. A small bottle of Lock D-icer can be handy also for the tether swivel on the fuel cap.
