Are you putting the delivery pump nozzle into tank filler far enough so it ppushes open the restrictor flap inside fill neck ? if so then check under n/s/rear wheel arch and where the filler pipe is you will see a smaller bore pipe clipped along side this is the fuel tank ventilation pipe that as you fill tank it will vent theair from tank as displacement occures ensure this pipe is clear ?

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

Slow filling gas tank


Sounds like someone put something in the fill tube. It is easy to pull off then run high air pressure through it

I have a 1999 Ford Escort Wagon. The gas tank will fill about 3/4 full and then the gas hose shut down. It then takes about ten minutes to get the rest of the gas into the tank. What is the problem?


on the wagon thay made the vent breather for tank when filling to long unfortunitly their nothing you can do other than feed it really slow backing the pump hose off just alittle but not always affective.

When pumping gas the pump constantly disengages as if the tank were full - it doesn't matter which station or pump. It goes off about 10 times while filling the tank. I've taken it to the dealer...


Back pressure is going into the gas pump handle. If you havent already done so, when filling your car play around with putting the gas pump handle tube in at a different angle. My car often gives me the shits doing this too. I find that if I turn the handle so that it is at right angles or even completely upside down with the tube pointing in a different direction within the fuel intake on my car it works fine. Can be frustrating though particularly on high flow pumps.

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

Filling gas tank


There is a vent pipe that runs along the fill pipe, they get kinked and cause this concern (tank can't vent air when filling), the only fix is to replace the fill pipe assembly.
