On your fuel tank their is a vent line from the tank that comes back up to the main fuel inlet line that is to let the air from an empty tank escape while fuel goes in, if that vent is not working properly then the fuel cannot go in quickly because the air in the tank has no where to go. The hose is made of rubber and may have become fatigued and kinked on a sharp corner. You will have to go underneath the vehile and inspect where vent line from where it exits the tank and goes back up to the main inlet line. You may have to replace the line.

When fueling my 2002 hyundai 350L the fuel keeps stopping as if full,I have to fill it very slow


This happens when the tank ventilation system gets clogged, or the bottom of the fuel tank is bent inward. When you fill the tank it displaces air as the fuel goes in. It acts like its full because it can't vent the air out of the tank

Why is the fuel tank slow to fill and blowing back?


The EVAP vent solenoid valve is chocked or bloked.
When gas is pumped in, the rising fuel in the tank raises pressure beneath the diaphragm of the Refueling Valve, the valve opens, and the tank is able to breath out through the charcoal canister. If the refueling valve (which includes the restrictor orafice), the charcoal canister or the evap valve are malfunctioning, the tank will be unable to breath out.

Having trouble filling car with fuel


Do you mean the Vent Tube?
You may have a restriction within the fill hose - collapsed.
Ground (earth) wires do not have much to do with refueling.
Breather isn't electronic though if car operated without the fuel cap on you could get a Trouble Code. Recheck the vent HOSE and the fill Hose.

Having trouble filling the fuel tank. Pump shuts off every 10-15 seconds. Any suggestions?


First, This can be caused by trying to refuel with the engine running. If the engine was running when you were refueling, the evaporative emissions system could have been in PURGE mode at the time. This will cause the vent solenoid for your fuel system to be closed and the air trapped inside the fuel tank is what was causing your problem. If this is the case, shutting the ignition switch off when refueling will fix the problem.

Otherwise, the vent solenoid could be sticking or the charcoal canister could be saturated. The canister could be coming apart inside and clogging the vent solenoid with charcoal pellets. There are Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) covering this subject on several Ford models. However, I did not find any TSBs that apply directly to your model. So, to put it simply, your EVAP system as well as your fill tube should be checked for resrictions. If you did not try to refuel with the engine running, my bets are on a sticking vent solenoid valve.

Gasoline pump at gas station keeps turning off


There is a vent valve located near the fuel tank. The vent valve is part of the EVAP emission system. If the valve is obstructed or failed, air will not escape while refueling.
Has the service engine light come on at all?

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system consists of a unique fuel tank, flow management valve, fluid control valve, one-way check valve and vapor canister.

The ORVR (On-Board Refueling Vapor Recovery) system is used to remove excess fuel tank vapors. This is done while the vehicle is being refueled..

Fuel flowing into the fuel filler tube (approx. 1 inches I.D.) creates an aspiration effect drawing air into the fuel fill tube. During refueling, the fuel tank is vented to the EVAP canister to capture escaping vapors. With air flowing into the filler tube, there are no fuel vapors escaping to the atmosphere. Once the refueling vapors are captured by the EVAP canister, the vehicle's computer controlled purge system draws vapor out of the canister for the engine to burn. The vapor flow is metered by the purge solenoid so that there is no, or minimal impact on driveability or tailpipe emissions.

As fuel starts to flow through the fuel fill tube, it opens the normally closed check valve and enters the fuel tank. Vapor or air is expelled from the tank through the control valve and on to the vapor canister. Vapor is absorbed in the EVAP canister until vapor flow in the lines stops. This stoppage occurs following fuel shut-off, or by having the fuel level in the tank rise high enough to close the control valve. This control valve contains a float that rises to seal the large diameter vent path to the EVAP canister. At this point in the refueling process, fuel tank pressure increases, the check valve closes (preventing liquid fuel from spiting back at the operator), and fuel then rises up the fuel filler tube to shut off the dispensing nozzle.

Refueling


Since you don't usually fill up at the exact same pump all the time, and this continually happens, it sounds more like your gas guage may be broken, rather then a default with the tank itself. Try measuring the miles or kilometers you get and compare it to ur car manual to verify this.
