If your having trouble filling the fuel tank. Consider a few things first, Have you tried holding the filler nozzle at a different angle? Have you had any resent repairs done to the fuel tank and/or filler nozzle? Are you trying to fill a fuel tank that is already full?
If none of the above suggestions apply to your problem then you may have an obstruction down inside the filler collar or the vent tube that runs parallel with the filler tube.

The fill tube for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

SOURCE: 2005 Ford Crown Victoria Trouble filling gas tank.

The tank vent pipe may be blocked or kinked, it usually branches off the main tank filler pipe and can be seen from under the car.

Diagnose gas tank fill problem


The vent in the filler neck is more than likely sticking. That is if you are having trouble filling the tank up, or if it fills too slow. Also is there a check engine light on? Try and describe the problem when filling tank. ie: tank fills slowly, cannot fill tank, gas splashes back when filling.

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!

Start problem after filling gas tank


Interesting,
is the check engine light on, and have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
Sounds like the idle air control valve is sticking but that would not have any effect with the gas tank.

2009 Silverado 2500 HD hard to start after filling with last fuel fill. Idles very rough, but runs fine at top speeds. Very rough at idle in gear.


you should first test the computer system for trouble codes.you may have overfilled the gas tank and flooded the carbon canister that holds the gas fumes from the tank, i would look for trouble codes first though,as filling the tank and the problem ocurring after that may only be coinsidental,this would be hard for you to diagnos anyway.

Stalls after getting gas then starts fine. Also noticed it idles rough at other times. No trouble codes. Any thoughts?


When it stalls after getting gas, are you filling the tank up beyond the first stop? I was filling mine up after the pump shuts itself off in order to top it off as much as possible. I learned this can plug some type of purge vent or something like that. I stopped topping it off and haven't had a problem since. Mine would hesitate and then die at the first couple stop lights after getting gas. From what I've read, the cheap fix is not to fill it up past the stop point, but the permanent fix is to replace the gas tank since the vent physically part of the tank.

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.

Sensor won't allow full tank of gas


I'd have to check your evap system. Any applicable trouble codes?
When you fill-up, the air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back-up the fill pipe and shut off the gas pump. I'm not that familiar with your particular emission system. Just my 2 cents.

No gas


There is a vent hose (rubber) attached to the fill tube, it's much smaller than the fill tube, and it lets the air out as u fill tank. If u have this trouble, the vent hose is probably kinked, or bent which would slow the speed of filling the tank. Follow the tube and check, let me know what u find.
