I have the same problem currently with my accent. I am still in process of fixing, but narrowed the problem to 3 areas. I am thinking it is one of the first two. Let me know if you have any success and I will do the same.

there is a vent at the top of the tank, it may be plugged.

there is a charcoal canister behind the driver side rear wheel. It may be the problem.

There is a canister purge next to the charcoal filter. It may be bad

    problem solvable replacing the canister and filter under the rear of the car. for good measure there is a filter under a cover under the wheel well drivers side rear. only costs a couple bucks and nearly all components of the recovery system will be new and you will not have any more problems filling your tank.

You have a restrictor in the fuel filler neck to stop fuel leaking out if the car overturns,unfortunately it also means you have to hold the fuel gun 1/2 way to stop it shutting off.also to fill right up, you have to rock the car a little when nearly full.autofill guns are only in USA/Canada. you cannot take out thr restrictor......

SOURCE: 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!

Fuel fill problem gas pump keeps shuts of when i try to fill


Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.

My Hyundai Accent 2003 has a problem while filling fuel. It stops every 0.3 gallons. I tried to fill it manually, squeezing the pump very slowly, with no luck. The guy at Tuffy did not have any idea how to...


upon filling the tank, push the nozzle in fully were the nozzles seal meets the filler neck rim. Then pull the nozzle out about one or two inches and try that. It seems to work on cars that have a very thin walled gas neck to 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.
