Hold the fuel nozzle farther out when fueling. Sometimes fuel runs to fast to tank and doesn;t have enough air in tank thus shutting pump or nozzle down.

How can you tell if you have bad gas in your tank


What are the indications of bad gasoline?
A:

QUICK ANSWER

The symptoms of bad gas involve a lean misfire, which creates a P0300 code in newer cars, engine detonation and pinging, sputtering and stalling. These occur because the bad gas fails to keep the fuel system clean and introduces contaminants that can clog fuel filters, fuel pumps and fuel injectors. In addition, bad gas can have an octane rating lower than advertised, leading to the aforementioned detonation and pinging.

FULL ANSWER

Receiving bad gas from a fueling station is more common than the industry admits. The only cure for fixing bad gas is to drain the fuel tank and fill it with fresh gasoline while cleaning the fuel system in the process. Bad gas can be caused by gasoline suppliers not mixing the required amount of additives in the fuel, causing them to be less effective in preventing deposits and causing fuel varnish to form in the fueling system. Sometimes the tanks, whether at the fueling stations tanks or in the vehicle's own fuel tanks, are contaminated with dirt, corrosion and water. Because no filtration system is absolutely perfect, even with the various filters and stringent EPA requirements in place, these contaminants end up inside the car and may damage it. Gasoline that is lower in octane often occurs because either the supplier or the fueling station intentionally sells regular fuel as higher octane, profiting over the difference in price.

06 Mustang Gas Tank; Last 2 times I couldn't take in more than 7 gal fuel before filler shut off occurred. After that, filler would shut off after every .1 gal. When at Costco with 10 cars waiting to...


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.

My 2005 Chevy Classic Malibu will not start. Conditions are: overfilled at gas station to where gas spewed out. No problems prior to this. Car would not start. Have pressure in the fuel line, can hear...


Sounds like the fuel pump went bad, or a relay for the fuel pump. My guess it's a fuel pump more likely to have gone bad.

Maybe a coincidence that when you overfilled the gas at the gas station that it put the pump 'over the edge' as far as functioning.

I do not see a connection between overfilling and the fuel pump going bad at that instance, but anything is possible.

On the 91 tracker i told you about the head in new the head gasket is new and all new parts


i have seen many different things do this but the most likely culprit is a bad gas station
most stations have water in there fuel but some have more than others

run the fuel tank real low like almost empty then add some gas line antifreze to soak up tthe excess water in tank then fill up at chain gas station like chevron

large gas stations have strict guide lines for how much water to fuel they are allowe to have in there tanks this is why from time to time you will see a gas station closed for renovations but there is little or no work going on inside it is out at the pumps
since they drain the tanks and slean the pumps out then re fill the tanks and need to prime the pumps

little stations are notorious for pumping water since they arent watched so closely like the chain stations

also if you know a bussy station shop there as they are less likely to have water since they have a high turn over of fuel and there tanks are allways geting run down

likely it is water in the fuel

gasline antifreze better knowen as Isopropyl alcohol it will combine with water and draw it out of your tank

Mazda 2002 tribute just wont start was running good put new gas cap in whats my problem please


Hello there :
I would say the most common problem is a clogged fuel filter. Make sure you follow your manufacturers recommendations as to when you should change the fuel filter. This information should be in your owners manual. Symptoms include sputtering at high speeds or engine not starting at all. Always check the ignition system first, if that's ok then the next suspect is the fuel filter.
Next most common problem is the fuel pump failing. Most modern electric fuel pumps can be heard when you turn the key on. If you don't hear the pump running and your car will not start, it could be your fuel pump. The first thing a mechanic will check is the relay which sends power to the pump. If this is operating correctly then the pump will have to be replaced.
Last but not least is dirty injectors. While the fuel filter does a good job of filtering the fuel, it's not perfect. Over time deposits and tiny particles lodge themselves in the injectors. This can clog and injector and prevent it from delivering the fuel the engine needs. It can also cause an injector to stick open and send too much fuel into the engine. A regular addition of fuel system cleaner like STP Injector Cleaner, or Techtron fuel system cleaner can help keep your injectors clean. Most gas stations, department stores and all automotive parts stores will have a good cleaner available. Add it to your empty tank right before you fill up and it will clean as you drive. I recommend doing this every 3 months to keep your injectors performing like new. Mechanics also offer a cleaning service where they actually disconnect the fuel line and flush cleaner through the engine. This is only necessary when you let your injectors get to a point where they can not be cleaned by a store-bought product. Regular use of a good in-tank cleaner will keep you from having to pay for this service. Where do you buy your gas?
Believe it, or not, it can make a difference. Always buy from a well know national brand service station. Gas stations which are not affiliated with one brand of gas tend to get whatever is left at the end of the day from the delivery truck. One day them might get Texaco, and Exxon another. Also water mixed with gas will cause problems with your engine. The engine will not run right, plus the water will promote rust in the fuel system. I have experienced this when I purchased gas at some no-name gas stations. Your car will feel sluggish and sometimes refuse to run if there is enough water in the gas.
Octane rating tip !!!!
Putting super in the tank will not get you any more performance or gas mileage unless specifically recommended by your cars manufacturer. If your owners manual says put in 87 octane...... DO IT. You are throwing money out the window if you are filling up on Super or Premium and you only need Regular.
Hope this is very helpful for you '
Best regards Michael

THE FUEL FILTER IS CLOGING MAKING THE CAR DIE IN TRAFFIC


Hi, got 3 suggestions for you 1.- Change the fuel filter 2.- Take your car to a good mechanic to have the fuel pump pressure checked to see if it works OK 3.- Sometimes gas stations do not refill their gas tanks till they're almost empty which causes the fuel to be "not as clean" as usual, maybe it will be a good idea to swich your preferred gas station. Hope this helps.

Pumping fuel problem


Hello;
It sounds as though the vent tube is clogged. Check the fuel inlets for collapse. Also change your fuel filter. Since the system is sealed also check the evap system and solenoids for proper function.
Hope this helps;

1993 sentra jerking problems.


I wanted to just give a suggestion...do you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
