With the number of Chinese made items we use the fine details are not always worked out well as you see, there is no science to this if it will not fill it is by a faulty design not anything you are doing or not doing.

SOURCE: Gas Gauge not reading correctly

The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.

SOURCE: 2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank

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.

Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

SOURCE: When filling my gas tank the nozzle clicks off

Do not insert the tip of nozzle all the way in when filling gas because if you insert too deep it triggers the nozzle sensor that gas is full and fill gas slowly when pressing nozzle handle.

Is difficult to fill gas tank


Gas pump nozzles have a device in the end that when gasoline runs back up into it, it turns off the fuel flow." There's a tiny hole near the bottom of the gas pump nozzle connected to a small tube.
Normally, air flows through that tube while you're filling and the gas keeps flowing as long as you hold down on the trigger. When that hole gets covered by gasoline (when your tank is full), a vacuum forms inside the nozzle and an automatic shutoff switch gets tripped, turning off the flow of gas with a thunk. Next time your fueling up try to reposition the nozzle.

Where is the overflow vapor senar located


If this is related to the fuel filling, evaporative canister issue, maybe the following will help. Most of the components for the fuel tank are located near the tank itself, with some near the front of the tank and the evaporative canister components behind the driver side rear wheel inside a splash cover.

The biggest problem people complain about is not being able to fill the tank without the pump stopping if the tank is filled at a higher rate than a trickle. This issue is caused by trying to overfill the tank after the fill nozzle has clicked off causing fuel to damage the evaporative charcoal canister clogging it and causing the blow back to the filler neck and fill nozzle, simulating a full tank shut-off of the filling process. This is not exclusive of Hyundai, and gas pumps usually warn of overfilling the fuel tank because of this known result. This evap containment mechanism was developed for the cars to replace the vapor collecting mechanism that gas stations used to use partly for the fill nozzle and collection dangers, now all that vapor is collected and safely burned when the engine is running. The evap canister can be expensive to replace, in the neighborhood of $150 from the dealer, and it's not recommended to try and bypass the system or you can create more issues than you solve.

If this isn't related to your issue, sorry, maybe you can post more info on what the issue is and how you need help.

I cant fill my gas tank. the gas spurts out when I try to fill tank.


The only thing I can suggest is perhaps you are trying to fill the tank to fast or the nozzle is not in the correct position.
1. slow the fuel speed
2. move the nozzle to different depths

When I fill-up my ford contour the gas pump keeps clicking off. can only put in a little gas at a time


Check the vent tube which is alongside the gas fill tube. It's either kinked, bent, pinched, or some how blocked, not allowing easy flow of gas into the tank. Once the tube is open, you will not have trouble. You don't give the year, it's possible it needs to be replaced (comes as a unit with the fill tube) if rusting badly.
