Check the nozzle of the gas pump, there is a piece that is sometimes missing on the tip of the nozzle. I have found a couple of stations that have one or two missing. the missing tip makes the nozzle to narrow to engage the locking tabs for the capless fuel filler.
Try another pump, if still persist it could be a problem with the locking tabs.

2001 landcruiser unable to fll fuel - fuel nozzle automatically cuts off


check that the air hose from the tank to the top of the filler pipe is not squashed or crimped by something like a zip tie. This hose allows the air in the tank that is being displaced by incoming fuel to vent at the top of the filler tube and not past the filler nozzle thereby switching it off.

When putting gas in my 2004 Kia amanit the fuel nozzle kicks off. How do I locate and fix the problem


HI Bridgette,

Due to the different shapes of fuel tank filler necks in cars & trucks, it may be necessary to vary one or more things to allow fuel to flow uninterrupted until the tank is really full.

The main problem can come from the new "vapor recovery" gasoline pumps. These pumps and hoses actually recover gasoline fumes from your tank as the liquid gasoline displaces the air / fumes in the tank is it is being filled. If gasoline flow is started at full blast, it can splash back slightly, causing liquid to be pulled back by the pump - so it shuts off. So, start with a slow rate of filling and gradually increase flow rate to maximum over 5 to 10 seconds. If it still shuts off, try some of the suggestions below.

First, don't fill at maximum flow rate from the pump - that is, don't set the nozzle for wide open. Select one of the other "latches" on the handle instead of the fastest flow and let the tank fill entirely at this rate.

Second, you should experiment a bit with the length of nozzle that you push into the tank's filler neck. If you push it in too far or too little, the pump nozzle can do what you're describing.

Third, try twisting the nozzle slightly so that it doesn't hang straight downward - a little to the left or right may provide a solution.

Lastly, try a different gas station. Their pumps may not be so picky with your tank's filler neck.

Good luck!

I cant fill up gas tank


normally the pump stops the nozzle from pumping gas,your gas tank is full. bypassing this safety feature is not reccomended as the tank will become over pressurized and eventually you will smell gas around your vechicule due to a blown seal between the tank and filler neck.

Just bought 08 focus 1.6 zetec with no manual how do i fill up with capless filler tank it appears to have a bar across the top


I wasn't aware that they used the capless design on a 2008 Focus. You may want to double check with the dealer on this. Normally, with capless, you just open the filler door and insert the nozzle. Could it be the top of the cap came off and you're looking at the under-frame of the cap? Try twisting it off counter-clockwise. You'll need a new cap if that's the case but it should be covered under warranty.

Fuel Tank


I have had this problem. For me it's usually when the tank is really empty. I worked at a gas station and at times, I'd have to replace the gas nozzles when they wouldn't kick off correctly.. I suspect the problem is that the gas nozzle is picking up more gasoline fumes that are being displaced in the tank and venting thru the fuel filler opening. The gas nozzle detects enough gasoline vapors with it's sensor to shut-off the nozzle. One can slightly adjust the nozzle in the fuel filler opening (or wait a few additional seconds giving time for the fuel vapors to exit the fuel tank)) and it works great.. I do not believe it is a problem with the Blazer. It's a combination of the gas nozzle and the amount of vapor escaping the filler opening with the displacement of vapor in the gas tank. I've had this happen in my Ford Contour.
I hope this helps others.

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.
