You have not mentioned the year or model of the truck.
I sort of hope it is older!
If so, you may have a mud dauber (wasp) nest in the air pipe.
There is a steel pipe that goes from the top of the gas tank to the outside air, usually near or inside the gas fill pipe.
If this pipe gets plugged, for any reason, it will cause the gas to refuse to go it.
You may also try several different gas stations, as I had a 1993 with the same problem, and sometimes it is the gas hose nozzle.
God bless your efforts.
Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem. You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.
Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps
no its not the vent.it is the restrictor for the nozzle for unleaded gas.(thinner/smaller then leaded) causing a back pressure when you are filling up.sorry but you will just have to fill up slowly like i do....
The problem is that your gas tank "pushes back" like it's full even when it isn't and makes the fuel valve click off. Tom and Ray on Car Talk covered this in a 2007 show and I pasted some of their response below:
"RAY: This condition is probably caused by either a blockage in your gasoline vapor recovery lines or a bad refueling control valve.
TOM: Gasoline vaporizes. How do we know that? Well, when gasoline is spilled, you can smell it, right? What you're smelling is vaporized gasoline.
RAY: And in the old days, when you filled up your tank, all the air inside the tank -- the air filled with gasoline vapors -- came whooshing out through the filler hole or through a vent at the top of the gas tank.
TOM: But then people in places like Los Angeles realized they couldn't see the person standing next to them due to smog. And since gasoline vapors contribute to smog, car makers were forced to install devices to capture those vapors.
RAY: So now each car has a vapor recovery unit that collects the gasoline vapors from the tank and then, the next time the car is started, sends them to the engine, where they're combusted. Your vapor recovery system isn't working, Lottie. One possibility is that one of the rubber hoses is blocked or collapsed."
dear friend -inside the filler neck is a butterfly which needs to be open when filling up,this happens when you insert the nozzle into the tank.shuold this flap be parcialy close the pump.will kick off.check for other restrictions aswell.
try this .. seat the gas nozzle all the way in there the next time your getting gas pull on the handle till it clicks off then pull the nozzle out a little bit .. then try putting the gas in... if it kicks off again try pulling it out a little bit farther.. good luck ray
