SOURCE: why do they tell you not to overfill gas tank

The actual reason is maximize your fuel mileage.
The engineering is as follows:
There are times when the fuel injectors shut off when you are driving, like going down a long hill. There is no need for the injectors to "work", as you are coasting without giving it any gas. But, the engine will stall out with no injector action. So, how does Toyota keep the engine running? From the gasoline FUMES in the fuel tank. There is a tube on top of the fuel tank whch siphons the fuel vapours...The vapours then are stored in something called a charcaol canister, in which the "charcoal" absorbs the fumes from the tank, and, when coasting, the injectors stop injecting, and the stored fumes are admitted into the intake manifold thru a valve controlled by the Electronic Control Unit, or ECU. The fumes are used by the engine, thusly maximizing your mileage, other than losing them by letting them escape out from under the fuel cap. Now, to answer your question: If the vehicle is "overfilled", there is no place for the fumes, other than in the top of the filler neck. And the siphon tube is on top of the tank. The ECU sees the overfill condition as a "blockage" in the fuel fume vent line (only fumes should be in this tube), and said "blockage" will transmit this to the ECU, thru a sensor, & turn on your check engine light. The overfill actually "lies" to the ECU, even though there is nothing wrong. Best thing to do: When filling the tank, stop after the handle clicks off.
I hope that I have explained this to your liking.

I ran out of gas in my 08 yaris and still had 3 bars. I put in 4 gallons and I'm still at 3 bars. What happened that the bars aren't moving up with the extra gas?


This problem usually occurs due three reasons:
1. If the odometer is reversed. (In this case the speed is not read. if meter reads speed ignore this reason).
2. The pointer in the sender fuel gauge is carbon fouled. (Remove the fuel gauge from the fuel tank and just clean the pointer. The fuel gauge is located under the rear passenger seat).
3. The fuel gauge in the fuel tank is defective.(Replace with a good known one even purchased from the junk).
Hope that works.Thank you for visiting Fixya.

2004 nissan sentra have problem pumping gas


When you're pumping gas, does it stop you at the end, when the tank is nearly full, or is it not letting you pump gas at all? And how does the fuel gauge read after you've added gas? If it stops you and it still says the tank isn't full, it could just be that the float in your tank that connects to the gauge is wrong.

hi it can really only be two things, first is the fuel sender on the pump inside the tank it could be stuffed or sticking causing a false reading, second it can also be a faulty fuel gauge on the dash.

05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and


The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

Gas gauge


The float that moves the gas hand is possibly stuck in the tank. If there's isn't an access hole in the rear of the vehicle you'll have to drop the tank. Unless it becomes free on it's own. Hope this is helpful. Please rate. Thanks
