You might be scared of spiders, but we know someone who is probably more scared—your car. Every year, spiders cause thousands of problems for car owners when they crawl into vehicles’ mechanics and nest. But it looks like Ford might have a solution—the Ford spider screen. This innovative technology prevents creepy crawlies from crawling into your vehicle’s fuel vapor lines, keeping your car running as smoothly as possible.
“Spiders can be a nuisance for our vehicle owners,” said David Gimby, Ford fuel systems engineer. “We studied these species to discern how they nest, then designed an effective device for excluding the larger, problematic spiders from nesting in our cars.”
The Ford spider screen continues to evolve, making sure that fuel vapor lines are clear. This is key to ensuring optimal vehicle performance. This terrific technology can be seen in vehicles across the North American Ford lineup. It will be globally implemented with the launch of the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS.
