A couple of lads who work with my Brother have 991's. They both have condensation problems when they first get in the cars in the mornings? Both have coupes, no sunroof?

Also...

In this cold weather they can't release the fuel filler flap?

Anyone else got these issues?

If its anything like the 996s in this respect, then the air con does not switch on at low temps (under 3c if memory serves) so you lose the air-drying effect. Maybe something similar.

Fuel filler flap is presumably freezing. Better than my E53 X5, on which the entire door lock mechanism freezes! frustrated

Must say that the 991, as with the 997 before it, has a propensity to mist up slightly in cold/wet weather (even with 1 person in the car, let alone 2). So I always make sure that the appropriate button (not the full demist button) is pressed to ensure a continuous stream of warm air is going to the screen at all times in such conditions.

Even on the coldest day, the filler flap will spring open so long as there is no ice around it. If a little slow, then deicer or warmish water always does the trick.

There is a high instance of fuel filler flap problems on gen 1 Cars. Sticking but not weather/temp related Question might just be exasperated by the weather. Fix under warranty usually.

Try these, they dried my car out when the internal guttering got blocked and soaked my carpet on my old cab
