SOURCE: smelling gas when just filled up tank on Ford Focus 2000

Now, in the past year, when I fill the gas tank, I can smell gas fumes inside the car (remember, it's a wagon).
I have a lot of customers that run into this problem and get the same answers from the dealers.
Given the age of the car and that it has been in a accident, here is what I would look for first.
1. First, because of the accident I would look to see if all the work was performed properly around the gas tank. Check the filler neck to make sure that all hoses and clamps are tight and in good shape, if cracked or it has any bad spots in it, replace it. The tech. that repaired the car could have missed something by accident; this is always a good place to start with by double-checking the work that was done.
2. I've had the Fuel Pump replaced twice due to recall. Another possibility, when they installed the fuel pump they may not have put the seal in right or it could have slipped. There is usually a rubber ring that goes between the tank and the pump and it might have moved during installation. When you fill the tank to the top it may come out because the seal slipped out of position.
3. I'm not sure on this model but on a lot of the newer cars they have been mounting the charcoal canister in the quarter panel next to the fuel neck but it may be hidden behind a plastic cover. The charcoal canister may have been damaged from the accident or it could just be defective and when you fill the tank up it may be going into the canister and fumes are coming from it or gas may be leaking out of it.
4. I have found that some of my customers have been over filling the tank trying to put as much as they can squeeze into the tank, this is not a good idea. When it gets hot outside, the gas expands and has no where to go except into the canister or lines of the canister, this system is not meant to handle gas, it is only meant to handle fumes. You will smell gas if you try to over fill the tank. When you fill it at the station you should let it click off. Just try rounding it off to the fifty cent mark, (example: $10.03 only go to $10.50 not $11.00) this will help you to keep from over filling the tank and neck of the tank. Over filling the tank can clause damage to the canister and components in this emission system.
These are things that the average person with some mechanical knowledge can check out on their own. After this point, it will usually have to be looked into by a fully qualified tech. with good trouble shooting skills that can follow the flowcharts to find the problem.

SOURCE: Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem

have you tried to reposition the filler nozzle to no avail?
I have this problem with certain filling stations nozzles.
I went so far as pulling the fuel tank filler hose that goes from the tank to the filler thinking there was something in there that was restricting the fuel flow while filling.
Some filler nozzles work well , others at the same station don't. So I have to use the one pump that works when I fill up my van... or , like you... babysit it for 10-15 min.

The tank vent pipe may be blocked or kinked, it usually branches off the main tank filler pipe and can be seen from under the car.

Right now look at the front of the engine behind the exhaust manifold and their are two breather pipes connected to a T connection that comes from the engine and check these pipes as if perished and split the engine will not idle .You cannot adjust anything without a dealer software to reset the mapping so check these pipes first and iam sure you will find their split and gone soft

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.
