Re: Can't put gas in ank
You'll have to lay down to see it, but use a light if needed, and look up at hoses going from filler (where you put gas in) to tank, my guess is that one of them has a kink in it. Smaller one is vent/overflow, larger one is for fuel to tank. By the sounds of it, if this didn't occur for sometime, Kia, may have a technical service bulletin or recall on it if both are doing the same thing, so it wouldn't hurt to give their service dept a quick call in case it's a free repair.

That fuel consumption is a bit heavy, but not excessive, depending on the driving conditions. In heavy traffic and slow town driving with a lot of stop starts it would be acceptable but on the open road in 2 wheel mode it would be excessive. Kia do not seem to manage much better than about 8-10 l/100km, even on their sedans.
there is a restrictor in the neck of the filler to stop fuel leaking when car inverted,all kia/hyundai suffer the same "problem" so you will have to fill up slower(also when "full"rock the car side to side,leave for 30 secs and you can put another 10lts in(weird...)
have someone check the vent valve and hose, a common problem is spiders go inside the vent hose and make a web nest, this blocks the system. so when filling the tank the air in the tank cant be release and so pump shut off and fuel sparys out, take a look , bet youll find a spiders nest.
we have the same problem....There is an fume evaporation canister under the car at the back. It's encased in a black box with a few lines and hoses coming in and out of it. Take the box off (should be four bolts) gently take it down and undo the wiring harness to it. (don't let it drop or you will pull the wires out of the fitting!!!!) in that mess is a smaller filter at the top of the box. We travel alot of grid roads and find that if that filter gets plugged with mud and dirt, then we end up putting 25 cents of fuel in at a time before it "clicks" off and fuel shoots back at you. Replace this filter or try and blow it out with an air compressor. The compressor thing works for a while but will eventually plug up again. If no Kia dealer nearby....Hyundai sells a very similar one that requires a little "modding" take he old one in and match it up. The hyundai one is actually set up a little better, less prone to plug and costs about 15 bucks canadian. P.s. driving through high water will also plug that filter so maybe buy a spare one. Once you chnage it the first time....pretty simple after. Hope that helps
Under the hood on the passenger side is a fuse panel that has 2 solenoids that push in. One is the gas solenoid that sends current to the fuel pump to start car. If this is bad your car will not start. Know this from experience because after a mechanic put in a $500 fuel pump and the car did the same thing 2 days later I purchased the new relay for $11. Runs fine!
