Other than wasting your money on the fuel you spill and damaging your paint, not to much.

Can`t get gas to go in the gas tank only a little at a time


There is gasoline in the vent tube blocking air from exiting the tank. This happens when you over fill the tank. With an almost empty tank, leave off the gas cap and VERY gently apply compressed air to the vent tube. Once cleared the tank will fill normally.

Loosing power when drining


Hi Jennifer-
I believe I may be able to help you with the gas spillage you are having when filling the tank. This happened on my 1998 Toyota Camry.
One day, even though I was low on fuel, the attendant had trouble adding gas to my tank. Gas would spill during filling or the nozzle would click off (as though it was full) even though it was not. I had to stand there myself and slowly add gas until the tank was full.
I learned that my car had a thin vent tube that would run from the gas tank to the gas tank opening. As gas is rushing into the tank during filling, the air that is being displaced from the gas tank escapes through this tube. This tube had rusted closed a bit and was restricting the air flow escaping from the tank during pumping causing the problems I described. Once this tube was replaced, my problem was solved!
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

Can't get gas into my 2002 Hyundai Accent.


The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

I have a 2006 F-150 Lariat SuperCrew and when I am accelerating, at around 45 mph to 55 mph my engine bogs or maybe the transmission is doing something funny. Could it be the O-2 sensors?


I happen to own the same truck as yours
Mine did the same thing too
The first thing I did was go to my reputable gas station (BP.SHELL,etc..)and fill it up with 93 octane gas. I drove it on the highway for 25 miles and the sluggishness went away. I probably had water in my tank which happens to all of us. All fuel stations gets water in their underground tanks at some point. When their tanks at almost empty you will receive some water in your tank. Even if your gas tank is half filled, filling it will make a difference you see for the less amount of water will work its way through with more gas added

I want to drain my gas tank because it has 6 year gas in it.


Your best bet is to go to the auto part store and buy a gas tank siphon kit and siphon the gas out of your car.
