    not funny , probably flooded evap hoses with fuel and that will stall engine , hence flooded with fuel , let it sit for a day so fuel can evaporate or leak down before trying to start , severe engine damage can occur , pure stupidity for trying to add fuel while car is running , very minor spark from you or the car will ignite fumes , even static electricity can ignite fumes

When i fuel up my passat the refuel nozzel will kick out about 20 times per tank this is annoying and it does not matter at what gas station


That used to happen alot with many vehicles at my rental car agency. What will help a lot is to set the nozzle just enough in the hole to fuel it up with out spilling it (just hold it a little further out). This will let make sure the fuel isn't running up into the nozzle which is what stops the fuel from spewing. Hope this helps!

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

Gas filler hose continually shuts off. I can only fill it with gas for a few seconds at a time and then I have to pull it out, re-seat the nozzle in the tank and start again. sometimes if I manually hold...


you have a faulty antirollover valve witch is located in the gas tank.it is stuck in the shut off position.explaning wy you can't put gas in it.
what is the code that keeps setting?
the antirollover valve is a plastic spring loaded ball that prevents fuel spillage from the tank in the case that your vehicle should be upsidedown. these valves have been known to fail ,causing problems refueling the vehicle.

Strong odor of gasoline vapors


do u have a check engine light on? do u overfill the tank? which is to say when the filler nozzle clicks off do u still try to put more fuel in? in any event u most likely have a overloaded carbon canister, pull the canister out and check it for gasoline saturation, the carbon canister is located under the car in a tray near the fuel tank.

2006 jeep liberty will not take gas keeps clicking off gas pump. 3rd time at dealer. dealer has no idea what's wrong


The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system consists of a unique fuel tank, flow management valve, fluid control valve, one-way check valve and vapor canister.

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system is used to remove excess fuel tank vapors. This is done while the vehicle is being refueled..

Fuel flowing into the fuel filler tube (approx. 1 inches I.D.) creates an aspiration effect drawing air into the fuel fill tube. During refueling, the fuel tank is vented to the EVAP canister to capture escaping vapors. With air flowing into the filler tube, there are no fuel vapors escaping to the atmosphere. Once the refueling vapors are captured by the EVAP canister, the vehicle's computer controlled purge system draws vapor out of the canister for the engine to burn. The vapor flow is metered by the purge solenoid so that there is no, or minimal impact on driveability or tailpipe emissions.

As fuel starts to flow through the fuel fill tube, it opens the normally closed check valve and enters the fuel tank. Vapor or air is expelled from the tank through the control valve and on to the vapor canister. Vapor is absorbed in the EVAP canister until vapor flow in the lines stops. This stoppage occurs following fuel shut-off, or by having the fuel level in the tank rise high enough to close the control valve. This control valve contains a float that rises to seal the large diameter vent path to the EVAP canister. At this point in the refueling process, fuel tank pressure increases, the check valve closes (preventing liquid fuel from spiting back at the operator), and fuel then rises up the fuel filler tube to shut off the dispensing nozzle.
