Question about 2010 Ford F-350 Super Duty
I have a 2010 f-350 with a v-10 and a 40gal tank. Recently it started becoming difficult to get fuel into the tank as the filler neck would fill up and shut the fuel nozzle off. I have to keep at the nozzle at all times and it takes about a half hour to fill the tank now. Pulled the tank and made sure i could blow air through the two tank vents and the filler neck and vent tube. Everything looks ok so what else could be the problem? The anti syphon valve moves freely in the tank but could it be jamming somehow when the fuel hits it?
Check the evap fuel canister...make sure its not clogged with dirt or fuel. Check the evap canister vent solenoid- it should be open with the car off.

theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

get the filler hose checked out as it may have a spring inside it to hold its shape or something has been dropped inside restricting it!

Good news, no the tank doesn't have to come down. However, there needs to be less than 3/4 tank. Jack it up and set on a jack stand, remove the wheel, four screws housing to pipe, filler pipe sensing hose from filler pipe, screw retaining the cap, four retaining screws from filler pipe, screw from filler pipe retainer, slide into the tank until it can be rotated and pulled out through the fender. lube the tank grommet with clean oil and reverse the removal for install.

There is a fault with the fuel tanks in the 06 cars (and some 05). It is a well known problem and Ford has issued a service bulletin on the issue.
It also seems to be a problem with the fuel pumps at certain gas stations but not others. Try a couple of different service stations (not the same fuel brand) and see if you have the same shut off problem because some people have found that the pumps at some gas stations do not cause premature shut off when re-fueling their 06 Stangs.
I would contact the nearest Ford dealer service people and see if they will rectify the problem for you FOC even though the vehicle is now out of warranty. In some vehicles the fuel tanks were replaced to fix the problem but not in all apparently.
In the meantime you can try 2 means to resolve the problem that has worked for some (not at the same time).
1. Turn the fuel pump nozzle 45 - 90 degrees when re-fueling and do not run the pump full bore. Slow the fuel flow a little.
2. I would avoid this one and I do not recommend it but it has worked well for some people with your problem. Turn on the car's ignition (not the engine)before you fill the tank . Switch it off immediately you have completed re-fueling.
