Fill gas tank

When filling the gas tank the gas will only trickle in thru the filler neck. it seems to backup and shut off the gas hose filling the tank.  It takes about  15 to 20 Minutes to fill.  almost like the hose line is kinked.   Help

    When I pull up at the gas pump in my 99 Toyota corolla it takes a very long time to put gas in . It's like no air is getting to the tank ,because it fills the neck part of the fuel line. Which one of the hoses should I replace?

Can not fill 2002 Ford Explorer with gasoline.


Did you check the vent tube alongside the filler neck? If it is pinched or blocked with something, just what you describe will happen. The air in the tank needs some way to escape to make room for the gas, and it should be through the vent tube. If it's bent, pinched, blocked, you will have a hard time pumping gas in.

Slow to take gas


There is a recall for the valve. I had the same problem with my car.
Take it to the dealership and they'll fix it for free.

Gas tank backs up when filling, shutting off hose


I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.
