Question about 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser
Does anybody else have this problem? Almost everytime that I fill up my FJ at the gas station, the automatic cut-off on the pump hose shuts off thinking that the tank is full, yet it seems to be caused by "back up" in the fill pipe to the tank. I can be empty and it still happens with the first squeeze of the pumps trigger.
Design flaw? Any one else?
I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.
