Why do the '06 Mustang have a gas cap with a BP logo on it recomending the use of BP gas? Is Ford starting to sell advertising space on it's vehicles?

Wot the bloody 'ell?

I can't believe this! It's only a matter of time before it bleeds over into other items on future cars. I can remember a time when the only place I EVER saw a BP station was when I was in Germany. They weren't even in the US then, I don't think. This must be some conglomerate deal between Ford, Volvo, Jaguar, BP and it's other european "Divisions".

I showed my wife today when we gassed up together...

Not on the '05 Noticed it on the '06 when I topped my tank off (I met wife a station to fill her '05.)


Well then, must be what Busch gave them for giving us a hand in Iraq... Mike Moore ? where are you.. ? Brit. gas stations here sounds fishy.

I wonder if this is Ford's fix for the "slow filling gas tank" problem. They want you to use only BP, because they can't guarantee anyone else's nozzles will work. hehehehe:sterb:

Found the article, here are some tid bit quotes:

"Recommending BP fuels to customers as an extension of a unique relationship the company has developed with this fuel provider".

"Ford has selected BP as the primary supplier of initial fuel for it's products as they roll off of the assembly line".

Also, this started in Europe with great success and has "paved the way for the current launch in the US".

Yeah, and now Georgia Tech plays b-ball in the "McDonalds Dome" and you can see concerts at the "Coca-Cola Amphitheater" while in Atlanta. Everything's sponsored. My wife has been having fits because we have -www.georgia.gov- on our new license plates. She doesn't want to advertise for them!!!!commercialism. Yea.

I was surprised to see the BP advertisement when I filled my tank in the new '06 for the first time a few nights ago. Obviously, Ford has made some kind of a deal with British Petroleum, which has been trying to increase its presence in the US market recently. BP has been very aggressive over the last ten to fifteen years in building/expanding a network of aviation fuel dealers throughout the U.S., and have recently started acquiring automotive fuel outlets. I haven't seen any BP gas stations in Arizona, but FBOs (fixed base operators) with BP aviation fuel are not unusual anywhere in the country now.

American Dream has it right. Since July they began more to put their heads together as far as research on better fuels and less emissions. Before that it was more of Ford B.P. World Cup Racing.

BP/Amoco probably has the contract for Ford's fuel at its plants. That's a s-load of gas per year. They give them the 'plug' on the fuel cap as part of the arrangement. Porsche has a Mobil 1 decal under their engine hoods as part of their marketing agreement. It's not that unusual anymore. Use some Goof-Off and it will come right off!
