Check the filler hose for loose clamp or cracked hose.. Check the fuel sender unit is tight and the gasket is in good condition

SOURCE: Gas tank wont' fill to specs

Based upon my experience, I would say it's a manufacturing defect. Something in the filler or the tank itself. I've seen cases where the dealer replaced the tank and related parts when this is happening.

SOURCE: tank gauge shows empty with 5 gallons in tank.

I agree its the sending unit also in the gas tank.
I would get the price for the part and possibly for the fuel pump also. You may be able to do these seperately but since the tank is out and based on how many miles are on the pump in the tank you may want to think about doing them both.
Now the only con on doing the pump is there are alot of junk replacement pumps out there and i have seen them go out in less than a couple months,, and this prabably would be the pump you get when the pump really goes out. So it your call on whether or not you replace the pump. Also when replacing pump or just sending unit you should replace the harness also. Poor connections can lead to future fuel pump failures

I have a 99 bonneville. About a week ago i was putting gas in when i knew it was almost empty, and the pump kept shutting off. I did this for a few days, putting in just enough to not run out. Then it went...


Sounds like the vent for the tank may be defective. The vent is on top of the gas tank between the tank and the floor of the trunk.
Or there is a blockage in the fill pipe for the tank below the connector hose.
You may have to have someone remove the tank and inspect it.

Has been in storage will crk. when fuel is poured down throat .has fuel press fuel is by passed to return gas line will only run when you pour gas in .


Depending on how long it has sat, the gas can turn to varnish and not be capable of 'lighting off' with spark-try draining the tank and fill with 5 gallons of fresh gas, charge the battery to full charge and try again.

Honda Civic -2001. Gas fill more than tank capacity?


the sender unit in the tank ,i think it has petrol in the float so its not reading correct.with the filler neck and associated pipes then it no doubt holds nearer 15 gals or about 80 litres .I couldnt afford to buy this much petrol in one go as its just over 1 euro 20cents a litre here so that would cost me 90+ euros or if the exchange rate is right this morning thats a dollar a litre

When the gas light comes on how much gas do i have left in the tank?


Hi:
I am pretty sure that the light comes on when you have approx 1/8 tank left. In my honda, with a 12 gallon tank, that equated out to 1.5 gallons, or approx 45 driving miles on flat land in the city. Of course, you should check your average miles per gallon with your driving style , as well as filling the tank once the light comes on, to see how many gallons are left, and you will have an accurate number!

2004 mazda 6 with 3.0l V6..WHen the gas guage falls below a quarter tank the car shutters really bad getting on and off the interstate. Almost as if no gas is getting pushed to the engine. Dealer ship said...


Find out how many gallons your fuel tank holds. Once it falls below a 1/4 tank and starts to shutter. Proceed to the nearest gas station and fill up. If you fill it up with 12 gallons and your tank holds 12 gallons then your fuel gauge is off. So it should be reading empty instead a 1/4 tank.

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.
