Sounds like a plugged vent line. You will need to look at the vent at the end of the filler tube to see if it is blocked. Has there been any ice or crud building up around the filler area?

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.

I cant get the gas tank full


Try slowing down how fast you pump the fuel in, the curve of the tank filler pipe and the stopper valve at the end of the pipe(in the tank)will act as a restriction causing a backup when filling too fast. Or the stopper valve is sticking in the tank. To fix that ,you would have to replace the tank.

I cant fill my gas tank. the gas spurts out when I try to fill tank.


The only thing I can suggest is perhaps you are trying to fill the tank to fast or the nozzle is not in the correct position.
1. slow the fuel speed
2. move the nozzle to different depths

Gas wont go in tank.it takes it slow ?the gas pump shuts off like the tank is slow.


the fuel return hose is kinked or plugged up. every filler neck has a secondary vent tube attached to the tank for fast fill ups. If it is slow in filling have that vent tube inspected

Try to fill gas tank, gas pump nozzle clicks off, sometimes as much as 10 times in 1 gallon pumped. Something wrong with pipe to tank?


There should be an air vent coming from the top of the gas tank back to the top of the fuel tank. Possibly kinked or pinched, try pulling the fuel nozzle about half way out and filling the tank on the lowest setting the fuel pump will let you.

Cars gas tank


the breather tube for the tank might be clogged not letting the air out. so when you fill the tank the fill cant get in fast enough b/c the air is not excaping. check the breather tube for kinks or bends. or even blockage of somekind

Front gas tank leaked when I filled the tank


the top of the tank has an opening where the gas guage sending unit is installed. The gasket can give out and it can leak when the tank is completely full, but won't necessarily show signs of leakage when the tank is partially full.
Requires dropping the tank and changing the gasket... hope this helps.

Won't take gas


don't insert nozzle in fill hole so deep. It is not getting the air it needs to vent out while your fillinh the tank. Also start off slow on filling the tank, so that the air will start coming out while gas is going into your gas tank. like is said, the tank isnot venting fast enough, to let the gas come into the tank.
