By pass pipe crimped or blocked, most tanks have a pipe from the top of the tank to the neck of the filler to allow air to escape from the tank as the fuel is put in. If the pipe gets blocked, air has to come back up the filler pipe and it bubbles the fuel and backs it up to the filler causing the pump to knock off. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: 2002 honda crv fuel gauge moves really slow.

I had the same problem. My battery was going bad. When I replaced it with a new one, the fuel gauge worked fine.

SOURCE: filling fuel tank on my 2005 impala is painfully slow

ONE THING YOU CAN CHECK IS THE SCREEN INSIDE THE FILL NECK BUT YOU MUST REMOVE THE TUBE THAT IS ON THE TANK. THERE IS A STRAINER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TUBE THAT NOT ONLY PREVENTS SIPHONING OF THE FUEL BUT KEEPS DIRT AND LARGER PARTICLES FROM REACHING THE INSIDE OF THE TANK. IF THIS IS CLOGGED IT MAY HAVE BEEN VANDALS OR EVEN SMALL CHILDREN AT PLAY. IF THE CLAMP THAT HOLD THE NECK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK IS THE CRIMP-ON TYPE THEN CAREFULLY CUT IT OFF THEN REPLACE WITH A STAINLESS ONE THAT CAN BE REUSED. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. VERY CURIOUS TO KNOW. BUT EMISSIONWIZ KNOWS HIS STUFF SO I MAY BE WAY OFF. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: problem filling gas tank

Sounds like you need a new filler neck. There is a vent, and it is part of the filler neck. Or there could be a bad valve at the bottom of the neck.

When fueling my 2002 hyundai 350L the fuel keeps stopping as if full,I have to fill it very slow


This happens when the tank ventilation system gets clogged, or the bottom of the fuel tank is bent inward. When you fill the tank it displaces air as the fuel goes in. It acts like its full because it can't vent the air out of the tank

Diagnose gas tank fill problem


The vent in the filler neck is more than likely sticking. That is if you are having trouble filling the tank up, or if it fills too slow. Also is there a check engine light on? Try and describe the problem when filling tank. ie: tank fills slowly, cannot fill tank, gas splashes back when filling.

I have a hundai acent 2003 and a few months ago when i would fill up the tank of gas i had to do it very slow it would stop filling as if it was full when indeed it was not. Today i went to fill up and it...


a bad fuel level in the tank should not cause the tank not to fill up,but it can cause bad readings to the gauge. so the tank may have had more fuel in it than you thought and that is why it wouldn' t take the gas as it should. then when you filled up the next time the fuel level was correct so it filled up like you knew it was suppose to.I suggest you monitor the fuel with your trip odometer and fiil up every 200 miles to make sure the gauge is reading like it should or you may run out of gas.

Gas wont go in tank.it takes it slow ?the gas pump shuts off like the tank is slow.


the fuel return hose is kinked or plugged up. every filler neck has a secondary vent tube attached to the tank for fast fill ups. If it is slow in filling have that vent tube inspected

Fill gas tank very slow


Need to inspect/clean/replace the fuel tank breather. Try this first, as this being faulty will create to much back pressure in the tank, causing the fuel nozzle to shut off quickly. Also, when filling, try holding the fuel nozzle upside down, no known reason why it works, but it sometimes does!

Rough idle, cruise control also stopped working


Sounds like you could have gotten some water in your fuel tank from that fill up. Go to a autoparts store and get a product to put in the tank that takes care of water in fuel. Use it when you fill the tank up a few times after and hopefully it goes away. Whenever you can't sustain power in the engine or it runs rough then your cruise control will constantly be shut off because the engine doesn't have the power to keep the speed up and should go away once your engine is running clean again.

Good Luck
