Filled up with gas today when the handle clicked too let me know it was full of gas it did not come out it came out from under the bed. Do you think it might have come from where the pipe goes into the tank?

I have a 92 Dakota with this issue. You are probably correct. The fill pipe will be rusted out just above the overflow return pipe. You could remove solder,braze,hate to say , just tape up. As long as it passes Evap at Inspection.

When putting gas in the tank of 2009 F150, the gas overflows when the gauge shows only 5/8 full. I cannot fill the tank.Any suggestions


Tank is full. The level swith is bad. Have to pull the bed to get to the fuel pump. Pump and fload is all in one. If you work on this yourself, replace the whole unit with Ford parts, do not use after market it will not last. If under warranty just go to dealer. Good luck..

Do the new Sierra 1500 trucks 2007-2010 have a full size spare tire?


Yes. The spare tire is located under the bed in the rear of the vehicle. You have to use the handle of the jack to lower it down. There is a place in the bumper next to the License plate that you stick the jack handle in to lower the tire down.

When I go to fill up the gas tank the gas keeps cutting off at the pump handle and I have to slow the gas pump to a trickle in order to fill the tank.


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."

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.

2004 hyundai accent. trouble filling gas tank


I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

FUEL LEAK


I my friend have a question for you...
Did you top of the fuel tank after your last fill up?

It might be your fuel over flow tube under the bike,
that the smell is coming from.
It is designed to discharge the overflow safely
on the road beneath you...

Check it...Good luck.
