Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
WHEN I GO TO PUT GAS THE GAS SHOOTS BACK OUT I EVEN TRIED TO USE A LONG FUNNEL AND IT STILL DID NOT WORK IT IS MARKING 1/4 TANK IT WAS FULL I JUST GOT IT RUNNING AND THEY DID DROP THE TANK.
Your evap charcoal canister is full from being overfilled. The biggest problem with "topping off" is that it can wreck the evap system.
This system collects gasoline fumes from the tank and routes them to the engine for combustion.
Overfilling could force raw gas to enter the system and prevent it from working right. It could also cause a condition where you have a hard time filling the tank, as the system can't properly relieve pressure from the tank and the gas pump's automatic shutoff keeps engaging.
You will need to replace the canister for the fix.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is apprecited!!
