The fill tube for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

Well you troubleshooted the problem by yourself. When you put in gas it washed the filter off and your truck started. Your problem is just the fuel screen( or filter) located in the tank but you tank also needs to be flushed out to keep future occurances from happening. It is totally up to you. You can either just change the screen or change the fuel pump and it will come with a new screen. Price them both at the auto parts store and see the difference in price. It is recomended to let the professionals do this job just because of the easy to break fuel lines. But Whom ever diagnosed fuel pump and fuel filter did diagnosed it correctly. But most garages will not warrenty the job unless you change both the filter and the pump. WHEN YOU DO HAVE THE JOB DONE IT IS RECOMENDED TO HAVE LESS THAN A HALF OF A TANK OF FUEL BECAUSE WHAT EVER AMOUNT THAT IS IN THERE WILL BE REMOVED AND NEW FUEL PUT BACK IN. ALSO DONT LET THEM FILL IT UP FOR YOU UNTIL YOU KNOW THE AMOUNT THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU PER GALLON. YOU SHOULD NOT PAY FOR MORE THAT $150.00 FOR LABOR AND WHATEVER THE PART COST. Me myself as a shade tree mechanic. I usually charge $100.00 plus parts. Good luck

SOURCE: 2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank

I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Car won't start after filling up the gas tank.

Just helped a friend fix this exact same issue on his 2004 hyundai santa fe. Replaced the purge control valve - a $39 part, even from the dealer. Had to get our hands dirty, but it took literally one single hour to replace the part. Filled it up immediately afterward and no more starting problems. Part is located directly behind the manifold - top, rear of the engine compartment - just between the engine

Fuel gauge not working on my 2002 Pont. Grand Am SE light came on and won't go off so I don't know how much gas is in my car


Normally when the gas indicator light comes on, you have about 2 gallons left. Fill up your gas tank and reset your trip counter. Next time your gas indicator light comes on, check how many miles are on your trip counter. Use that number as a guide to when you should fill up with gas. Remember to always reset the counter every time you fill up. Good luck!

After getting gasoline, it increases wrong mileage with camry 2003


One tank of gas is not enough to compare mileage. Or are you saying the computer's readout of mpg estimate is showing less? Try a tank or two of premium and see if that helps. Keep track of gas mileage. Driving techniques have a lot to do with gas mileage, as does long trips vs. short trips, highway cruising vs. city driving. For best mileage, do regular maintenance and keep the car in top running condition-good spark plugs and clean filters and clean oil ! Attend to minor problems before they escalate.
If you want to check actual miles per gallon, start with a full tank. Write the odometer reading down, and go. Everytime you put gas in, write down the amount. When you are close to 1,000 miles from the time you started, go fill the tank and include that amount of gas to your previous list. Now add up all the gas used and divide it into the miles to get miles per gallon. (976 miles/31.8 gallons = 30.69 mpg ) . Only one tank will skew your numbers, might be off cause the tank was filled more to the top than the previous fill-up. About a thousand miles of driving will give you a very accurate figure of miles per gallon for your car.

Fuel gauge is showing amout of fuel like backwards on gauge. vehicle has 1/2 tank of fuel but gauge is showing like in the 100mph speed gauge


I think that the fuel sending unit in the tank is broken or the wire from the unit is unhooked.to keep from running out of fuel. fill up the car and use the trip oddometer to calculate how many miles you can travel. that car has 12 to 15 gallon tank and should get 20 to 25 miles per galloni would think that start putting gas in about 250 to 300 miles. then reset trip odometer

When my fuel runs low, approximately 1/4 tank, my car acts as if it's out of gas and dies. I originally thought broken gauge; obvious, right? However, when I filled it up; it didn't take a full tank. ...


funny that you mention ' Dark Matter ' -- there is a possibility that you might have water contamination in the tank (?), you can try and get some gas additives that remove water from the fuel. also, there is the possibility that fuel pick up line has been damaged and is not getting fuel from as low in the tank as it use to.

Gas light stays on even when tank is full


the float sensor attahced to your fuel pump sounds as though it is not working properly. Usually this occurs when the car rides on E many times and becomes damaged. depending on the model it may be necessary to replaced the sensor assembly or if it is the complete unit the whole fuel pump.

Also, depending on your driving habits your car can use more gas if your are driving in traffic (stop and go). Average out your fuel mileage by filling up a few times and keeping a log of the gas consumed. Do this by reseting the trip meter when you fill up and when you fill up again divide the total mileage on your trip meter by the amount of gas you used by getting the amount of gallons it took to fill up again. ex. 360miles divided by 10gals = 36 miles per gallon.

note. make sure you check your air filter (is it clean?) and tire pressure (32psi) these can be contributing factors to poor gas mileage

Problem fueling 1999 Dodge Intrepid


does your car run fine on the 5 gallons you stick in each time? if so I would say that your fuel pump is ok. I would take the tank out and see if there is some obstruction in the fill tube and tank orface, also look inside the tank for any floating debris, check and or replace the tank vent

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm
