SOURCE: Gas Tank Blockage

i had the exact same problem, turns out, there is a 2 lines going from the gas tank to where you put your gas in, one is for the gas to go in and one is for air to get out. on mine, there was a sliver seal from a bottle of heat that i had poured in during the winter. the seal was the exact size of the return air line and blocked it from air coming out. this forced the air to come out the gas part and splashed around a lot causing the pump to shut off, i bet there is a blockage in the line that goes from your nozzle to your tank. it is easy to take off, but it is very dirty

SOURCE: Gas tank over flows when filling up at the pump

This is the same issues I'm having. Is there any answer to this?

SOURCE: When filling gas tank the gas pump kicks off

Fuel tank vent hose damaged, kinked, or bent.

Fuel tank vent valve is defective, plugged with dirt, or damaged.

If the car is driven normally and has never been in an accident, it's probably the valve.

SOURCE: 2001 hyundai accent, trouble filling gas tank

I have 2002 Hyundai Accent. When fueling, I had to trickle the fuel in to prevent the fuel dispenser from constantly shutting off. Even then I could only get about a quarter gallon at a time between fuel shutoffs. Would take 10-15 minutes to put in 10 gallons. Very frustrating. I found and fixed the problem today. There is a charcoal cannister that is part of the Evaporative Emissions control system. It is located inside the rear fender well on the driver side, behind the driver side rear tire. You cant miss it. Actually looks like a square plastic box and it has hoses coming out of it. I removed the entire charcoal cannister assembly in about 15 minutes. Follow carefully. First, remove the electrical connector to the purge control valve (this valve assemby is mounted to the side of the charoal cannister on a bracket). No big deal. Then disconnect the three hoses that come out from the cannister assembly on the one side that faces the rear tire. Two of these hoses are small diameter about 1/4" and one is larger at about 5/8 inch diameter. Then you remove the 3 bolts that hold the whole cannister to the car frame. Then the whole piece comes out. Once I got the cannister and purge control valve out of the car as a whole assy I found the problem. The larger of the 3 hoses you disconnected as well as the port it connects to on the cannister was packed with the small charcoal pellets and actually formed a solid plug inside that larger hose. I had to stick a screw driver through that hose to knock the plug out that those charcoal pellets had formed. It all makes sense now. When you fill the tank with gas, you also push out air and vapor from the gas tank that is being displaced by the rising fuel in the tank. That vapor is supposed to go through that larger hose to the charcoal cannister where the fumes are removed by the charcoal. If that hose is plugged, like mine was, then the vapor has nowhere to go as you fill the tank and it increases pressure within the tank it causes the fuel dispenser nozzle to shutoff because it keeps detecting a pressure increase within the tank. That's my theory. I don't have the Hyundai design prints to confirm it. I had to tilt the charcoal dispenser so that the pellets came out of that larger hose port on the cannister. Like I said, even the port itself was full of pellets. So I poured out enough to clear the pellets that were in the hose port. I cleaned out the hose. Put everything back and went to go fill with gas. I filled that tank at full bore with no problem. Have the dealer or your mechanic check the ports and the hoses off the cannister. If they are filled with charcoal pellets, that is the problem. That should cost less than some of the fixes I have been reading about here.

Burning too much gas


the only true way to check fuel economy is to fill tank drive till 1/4 full do this 10 times taking your milage reading before each refill
that will give you your average milage
now if you live in a hilly area and your up and down all the time that will also throw all stuff out the window and in order to get what the manufacturer suggests vehicle will do for avg milage is to go at a steady 30mph on a very slight banked oval tack that is basically flat That is how manufacturers of vehicles get the milage a vehicle will go per gallon

When filling up with gas , the pumps stops and I have to fill tank very slowely


Some cars have a rather sharp bend in the fuel tank filler pipe. Try rotating the pump's nozzle so that it is more horizontal to the ground. Try it one way, if that does not work rotate it 180 degrees to the opposite direction.

Fuel comes back out fill tube when fueling 04titan king cab


With the information you've provided, one cam only imagine that you are obviously over filling the tank.

So this leads me to suspect that maybe (just maybe) your gas gauge is saying you are on empty, or 1/4 tank or a 1/2 tank whatever, etc. And you are wanting to make sure it is full.

I presume it always says this and that perhaps you need to have the sending unit replaced inside your fuel tank.

Otherwise, if all things are in working order and you meant to say that the Pump Nozle that the service station uses (where you fuel up) is not shutting off when your tank is full.

One of two things are happening,

In the case of a pump handle that has an auto lever, either they have a faulty pump nozle, in which case you need to talk with them about this.

OR

It is a manual Nozle, in which case you are holding the lever personally and are over filling your tank...

It would be advisable to look up the total fuel capacity of your tank and make a note of approximately how many gallon are in it before fueling up.

This way, if you know there are say around 5 gallons and you have an 15 gallon tank.
Adding even 10 gallons you would be running the risk of over flowing since you are only estimating say 5 gallons at the beginning, maybe it is 5 1/2 or even closer to 6. Therefore only about 9 gallons could be added without over flowing...

Hopefully you'll have found something useful in this.

Good Luck and happy motoring

Respectfully

When I pump gas, the gas pump clicks off every few seconds or so. I can't get more than 2 gallons in the tank before it clicks off. I takes me like 10 minutes to fill my tank.


is this happening at the same pump??? Each pump has a tiny vacuum line that's located in the spout. When the gas reaches a certain level and starts to cause a vacuum, the pump shuts off

Problem fueling 1999 Dodge Intrepid


does your car run fine on the 5 gallons you stick in each time? if so I would say that your fuel pump is ok. I would take the tank out and see if there is some obstruction in the fill tube and tank orface, also look inside the tank for any floating debris, check and or replace the tank vent
