Hyundai knows about this problem. there are a lot of them out there doing this. I have an 03 that none of the information helped fix it. Hyundai needs to start a recall or at least admit to the problem and send a solution. My car is so bad I get gas on me every time I fuel up. I drive my truck that uses a lot more gas just to keep from having to mess with it.

From the filler pipe to the gas tank is a flexible hose. This hose could be crimped or it has collapsed and this could be the cause of the restriction causing the long fill up times.

You obviously don't spend 32 min filling your tank,
there are other customer to take care of

You have a bad Evap System Vent Solenoid
causing the fuel tank to not vent & thus not
able to fill the tank

Research that for your vehicle with Google or go to

SOURCE: 2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank

I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: gas tank slow in filling

Rotating the nozzle in the filler hole can help.

What happens is that a little fuel splashes on the small holes in the nozzle which shut the nozzle off. Rotating it can alter the splashing, and/or move those holes in the nozzle away from where the splashing lands.

The fill tube for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

Diagnose gas tank fill problem

The vent in the filler neck is more than likely sticking. That is if you are having trouble filling the tank up, or if it fills too slow. Also is there a check engine light on? Try and describe the problem when filling tank. ie: tank fills slowly, cannot fill tank, gas splashes back when filling.

2000 chevy blazer gas pushes out of the filler necker while pumping gas

if you are having problems filling the gas it could be a couple things. first the pumps at the gas station over fill at a fast speed, try slowing them down and try moving the hose back a little to give it some breathing space instead of shoving it all the way in the gas area. next is try a different gas station, believe it or not there is a difference.

Check the filling tube (or hose) going to fuel tank for damage. Could be the "ball" just inside the tank where the filling tube is attached. Its there to prevent fuel from draining out of the tank in the event of a roll-over.
Tap on the tank in the area around the filling tube with a rubber mallet. This should "unstick" the ball. They do sometimes get stuck and wont let fuel into the tank.

2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow

Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

I need to change the fuel pump on my 1987 chevrolet v6 s-10 and need to locate fuel filter.

othe fuel filter is on the driver side behind or slightly infront of the rear wheel on the frame, looks like a silver can, only a tid smaller. There is another filter that is in-tank affized to the bottom of your fuel sending unit. Its a pain to do but there is worse. Why do you feel you need to change the fuel pump?

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem

The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
