Re: I can't fill the tank. The nozzle keeps clicking off.
The fill vent is inside the fill tube . your fill is 2 inch and inside it is a 3/4 inch that your gas goes down it runs from the filler neck to the 3/4 mark inside the tank your vent is the area between the outside if the inside tube and the inside of the outside tube . and vents through the gas pump nozzle ... gm has a problem with there trucks where the inside fill tube gets kinked after a while and kicks off the pump . i have never seen anyone fix this problem and have it work for long . i have a 2003 chevy truck same problem have to fill real slow . pulled tank , checked all lines changed fill neck ( flapper door in fill neck bad ) .... put it back . same problem . good luck . i gave up

look under the car at the back and on the filler pipe theri should be another pipe a thin one coming from the tank to above the nozzle restrictor,this is a vent pipe from tank to allow it to fill and this pipe could be kinked or restricted in some way ??
This is caused by an obstructed filler air pipe vent, this keeps the air from coming out of the tank as you fill, this causes the filler nozzle at the station to shut off as the gas backs up in the filler pipe, the air vent pipe is either kinked or blocked in some way. The vent tube runs down along side the gas fill tube and is all one part, replace it.
The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.
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.

You need to replace the hose that vents the filler pipe.It goes from the pipe to the tank and if it is plgged you have no way to get the air in the tank that is beig replaced by fuel to get out of the tank exept for the sam e hole that the nozzle is in.
Sounds like the vent is pluged, its either next to the filler pipe or inside the filler pipe, but in any case it will come from the gas tank
( most likely on top of tank) to vent the air thats traped in the tank, when its pluged there is no other place for the air to go but out the filler tube.
We have an "04 Suzuki Verona that does the same thing, we have found that it is not the station as much as it is the angle that the tank inlet is on. When you put the gas nozzle in, it fills with some air to replace the gas comming out of the nozzle. Unless you find a place that has a higher pressure pump, you are in a long and "Clicking Off" ownership when it time to pump gas. For the record, I have noticed that if I chose the lowest setting on the handle, the pump will ussually fill about $10 at a time. two or three of those, and its a done deal. Hope this helps you.
i think this model has a roll over valve. it could stuck from over filling the tank happen to me before on my chevy and my kia use a small plumers pipe snake ane silde it in the filler kneck try to tap on the valve a few times. it worked for me
