Although I've not had to do it, I also wondered about it. I reckon the only way would be with a flexible necked funnel, such as thishttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DRAPER-561...5#ht_891wt_698
This one appears to have a built in gauze filter and a small enough end to enable it to open the anti syphon flap. As it's flexible, you'd be better having someone to hold it, but a bit of string up around the tailgate hinge would probably do it.
Hope this helps.
Regards Colin

Surely the new models come with a special funnel, either in the glove box, or in the underfloor storage behind the front seats?Mine did.

ditto look under the mat behind the driver seat and there's a storage compartment with one or two I guess useful odds and ends. Not sure if the Grand C is the same though -

Yes found mine in the glove box, & wondered what is was for at first.Had a replacement Battery fitted on Thurs 29th Dec at had to jump start 4 times twice by RAC twice at home from my wifes Toyota Yaris. Not impressed!! Perhaps as it was Ex Demo model6.3K Mlsat reasonable price, so shouldn't complain I suppose. I Hope to be driving myself after 10 Jan after nasty head injury on 6th Sept. Happy new year to you all! PS my typing is getting better as well
