It sounds like your tank is airlocking. Each tank has a vent pipe on top and if that is blocked or kinked you will only be able to fill very slowly. Check that your tank can breathe.

We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.

Hyundai sonata 2003 when filling with gas, the pump will shut off as if the tank is full. Every time, everywhere


Try angling the gas pump handle at a differnt angle than just up and down, also try pulling the neck out during filling.... also if you have time go to the dealer and tell them and show service what is going on during filling, maybe they have a technique for filling.

When filling up the pump stops as if the tank is full. I know it's not as I can only pump about a quarter of a gallon of gas at a time. I can hold the handle so the flow of gas is so slow it will fill


run the fault codes as the problem is normally about venting and this is a purge valve for the canister problem. having said that there are lot of poorly designed fillers on the market that will not allow quick fills as the pump hose trigger keeps cutting of no no reason. You may have to just take your time when filling like most people do.
In this country lock fillers have been banned and you have to hold the trigger until the tank is full. Stops idiots from putting the nozzle in the tank and then wandering off and allowing the tank to over fill and create a dangerous situation..

Gas gage isnt right it keeps floating


The Sorento gs tank is under the floor in the back seat. Flip the seat bottom's forward and pull open the Velcro to access the top of the tank. The fuel pump and sender may be accessible from the top, but you might be unlucky and have t remove the tank.

Gas gauge seldom reaches full


your fuel tank has a float on the inside with the fuel pump. The float tells your guage where to read. You could check your releif hose on your tank to see if it is clogged . if it doesn,t get air out as fuel goes in it will cause the gas pump to kick off as it thinks your tank is full. when filling up just pull the pump nossel out some and see it that helps

Unable to pump gas


This problem is caused by the fuel tank vent pipe being restricted, usually it is kinked, replace the filler pipe vent.
