Most cars have an anti siphon device in the tank.this stops the gas pump going right down into the tank causing splash back. the only way around it is to fill the tank slowly ( do not pull the lever right in ) hope this helps

The car seems to have an obstruction in the gas line, won't take gasoline easily from the punp. Turns pump off continuosly.


Dan the reason it takes it from a gas can is there is no pressure building up in the line as you would have from a gas tank. As you fill the tanks the air inside of the tank has to go out as the tank fills up. I would suggest checking the fill hose thats connected to the gas tanks and the spout inlet where you put the hose to fill the tanks and check for kinks in the hose. Second there should be a vent hose from the tanks that connects to the spout also check it for kinks or blockage this would prevent air from escaping from the tank causing the gas pump to cut off due to the rapid filling of the tank without the air being able to escape. Hope this helps

When i pump gas it shoots back out even when its not full


you need to pump the gas slowly. the filler neck is not allowing air to escape out of tank while filling.this causes an air block and causes th gas to shoot back out at you as air escapes.

Fueling causes gas to back-up


Turn the handle 1 way or the other to follow the path of the fill spout as it is at an extreme angle beyond the filler nozzle portion.

Gas clicks like full when its not full


It sounds like your tank vent is pluged. If you look under the vehicle near your filler spout, you should see the filler spout hose leading to the tank and a smaller hose next to it. The smaller hose is the one that I am concerned with. See if it has some how collapsed with age. In a few rare cases I have seen the vent hose made inside of the filler hose ( ford ranger I belive) and you won't see that one. What happens is when you put the fuel in, the air must come out, so it burps for a better way of putting it and it forces fuel out with it. Putting the filler hose in farther and tighter won't help, but you could try to slow the rate down so as to give the air more time to escape.

How do you read the engine light codes on 2005 civic lx also if something got dropped into the gasfill spout is there a screen to stop it from going into the tank?


Teh check enign light needs to be rwad from a scanner/code puller. you can buy a cheap one at harbor freight or ebay. AZ/Advance auto pulls the code for free as well.


No there is no filter in the gas fill spout. If you drop soemthing its more then likely in your gas tank. Only was to get there is to drop the tank. What did you put in it?

Fueling of gas


Had cars like that; the path to the gas tank is probably somewhat constricted with bends causing the gas flow to gag at that point. A '95 Saturn SL2 I owned (what junk, glad I don't any more!) liked having the bend in the fuel spout pointing toward the front to avoid the problem you are having. You might try rotating spout a bit while fueling to see if you can also find a better path for the fuel.
