Rust Hole

#1
Good Moaning

Just a quick question to those in the know. Wife's car (Ford KA) due MOT this week. I knew there was a small rust spot by the fuel filler cap, she decides to tell me now it is a hole. I have inspected said hole and it is a small circular hole approximately the diameter of a 5p bit possibly slighly wider but not by much.

Question is , will it fail MOT for this??

Ta in advance

I have an R reg nissan micra , the only thing holding it together is silver duct tape. So long as there are no sharp edges or the rust comprmises safety then it wont in itself mean failure.

I have looked at a lot of these recently as my daughter for some unknown reason has took a liking for one,I have yet to see one that hasn't developed rust around the filler cap, as for the mot aspect I believe they look to see if the cap provides a proper seal,nothing more nothing less if so I think your'e ok.

As above however if it's not structAL (chasis etc) or dangerously sticking out, just bung some duct tape on it.
