same pump every time?

Check the filler tube neck for damage
Check the Evap System for OBD Codes
Smoke the Evap System & test the Vent Solenoid Valve

SOURCE: can't fill gastank...pump keeps tripping off after ever few cents

Most vehicles have an anti-trickle valve that prevents you from continuously trickling gas in. On most vehicles, the valve is tripped when the hose is put into the inlet pipe and in all cases prevents you from overflowing the fuel onto the ground.

This anti-trickle valve has failed (likely) or is not being activated when the filler pipe is put in (less likely). Options: 1) You can remove the fuel filler neck and replace the valve (if available). Some assemblies are only sold in units (late 90's LR Disco 1's). 2) You can by-pass the valve (possibly activating a ck eng problem). 3) You can try to clean the valve and see if there's an obstruction there or in the tube leading from the valve to the tank assembly.

SOURCE: Gas tank backs up when filling, shutting off hose

I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.

SOURCE: When I go to fill

The problem is that your gas tank "pushes back" like it's full even when it isn't and makes the fuel valve click off. Tom and Ray on Car Talk covered this in a 2007 show and I pasted some of their response below:

"RAY: This condition is probably caused by either a blockage in your gasoline vapor recovery lines or a bad refueling control valve.

TOM: Gasoline vaporizes. How do we know that? Well, when gasoline is spilled, you can smell it, right? What you're smelling is vaporized gasoline.

RAY: And in the old days, when you filled up your tank, all the air inside the tank -- the air filled with gasoline vapors -- came whooshing out through the filler hole or through a vent at the top of the gas tank.

TOM: But then people in places like Los Angeles realized they couldn't see the person standing next to them due to smog. And since gasoline vapors contribute to smog, car makers were forced to install devices to capture those vapors.

RAY: So now each car has a vapor recovery unit that collects the gasoline vapors from the tank and then, the next time the car is started, sends them to the engine, where they're combusted. Your vapor recovery system isn't working, Lottie. One possibility is that one of the rubber hoses is blocked or collapsed."

SOURCE: Filling my gas tank the pump keeps shutting off

Its a fact the pump will kick off on some makes especially trucks. here is a hint. When filling up insert the nozzle fully and then pull it back one inch. This way it will not stop or splash back at you which some pumps do

When filling up the pump stops as if the tank is full. I know it's not as I can only pump about a quarter of a gallon of gas at a time. I can hold the handle so the flow of gas is so slow it will fill


run the fault codes as the problem is normally about venting and this is a purge valve for the canister problem. having said that there are lot of poorly designed fillers on the market that will not allow quick fills as the pump hose trigger keeps cutting of no no reason. You may have to just take your time when filling like most people do.
In this country lock fillers have been banned and you have to hold the trigger until the tank is full. Stops idiots from putting the nozzle in the tank and then wandering off and allowing the tank to over fill and create a dangerous situation..

I'm having problems adding gas to my hyundai elantra, it will allow me to put about $2.00 and then the pump will stop?


Your Elantra like most cars and trucks has a safety ventilated fill tank...first try pulling the gas nozzle out of your tank about one inch or two while filling at the pump...this should keep the hose from auto shut/off but be careful as you are eliminating a safety shut off...you may need to do this several times at different stops for gas until you surprisingly notice that you don't need to do this any longer...the system will eventually bleed the air out, and return to normal fill operation. Hope this helps.

On my 911 C2 I have trouble putting gas in while filling up, the pump keeps shutting off, no matter what I do. So frustrating.


I had this same problem with my Land Rover Discovery. The gas pump shuts off when gas covers a small tube in the tip of the pump handle which triggers the shut off mechanism. If the gas is extra foamy one day it can trigger this mechanism. With my Land Rover, there was a bend in the filler hose just past where the tube would sit when I was filling it up with gas. This would cause some splashing near the tip of the pump handle shutting off the pump. I was able to pull the pump tip out a little bit so that it wasn't inserted all the way into the filler, that way it wasn't as close to the bend in the hose and the splashing didn't affect the shut off mechanism. When I did this I could walk away and let the pump fill the tank all the way. This could be the same problem you're having. Try pulling the handle out a little bit and see if that helps.

Good Luck!

try turning nozzle upside down and pull trigger when gasing, may just have to pull the gas lever slightly so the pump pumps slower, had to do that with past vehicles

Having problem with trying to gas up the elantra. gas pump handle keeps clicking off. have to squeeze handle real lightly to fill up tank takes a long time to fill up. help


I know you probably won't like my answer, but seeing as I am a service tech for gas stations, the nozzle has a safety feature which shuts/kicks off when gas splashes back into the nozzle, thus keeping the gas from running over when the car is unattended and nozzle is locked. You can try pulling the nozzle back til it is barely in the tank or try a different gas station as some nozzles are different. As it is the shape of the fill tube on your vehicle. Hope this helped Tim

Every time I fill up my 2001 Hyundai Elantra at every station I've been to the pump will constantly cut off during fill-up. I've tried pulling the nozzle further out of the gas tank and pushed it in as far...


When a gas pump does this it is because there is alot of pressure in the gas tank. This is a good thing for you because it means all your seals in the fule system are working good.Next time you fill up open you fule cap and let the car vent for a little bit then try to fill.

Having trouble pumping gas into 2005 hyundai elantra


You have a blocked or restricted evaporative cannister or vent valve or both. When you fill the tank with gas, the air is expelled through a line attatched to the emissions cannister and then through another line to the vent valve. If these are restricted or damaged, this could cause your symptoms. Usually you can still fill the tank very slowly though. Usually, the canister ges saturated from gas from overfilling (topping off).
The fix is to replace the EVAP canister.
