All vehicles now have an evap system that closes off your fuel tank vents when you are driving. If this fails, you will get this condition.
Have your "vent solenoid" checked out!

Look for something obstructing the nozzle insert. also there is a hose that gives your tank ventilization while putting the fuel in it. under the car at tank,look up at your hoses,there will be a large one, thats the main filling hose, the smaller hose will be a return hose. look for a kink in that return hose, also check to make sure that it's connected. hope this helps

2004avalanche wont take gas


I'm assuming that you mean it is very difficult to fill the gas tank at some gas stations. It often seems like it "kicks" if you look at it cross eyed. It's irritating, and some gas stations seem worse than others.


The filler neck takes a sharp bend right by the opening, and reduces dramatically in diameter. Some pumps push out at higher volumes, and other pumps are more sensitive to the back-pressure, causing it to "kick" prematurely. The solution I found was to rotate the nozzle in the tank opening. If you turn it so the handle is at the 5 o'clock position it will sometimes work. Occasionally I've had to hold the nozzle upside down. Or just avoid that station.

try turning nozzle upside down and pull trigger when gasing, may just have to pull the gas lever slightly so the pump pumps slower, had to do that with past vehicles

Why can't I fill my gas tank on my 2002 Hyundai


Not necessarily. Try pumping the gas at the slowest speed. Or try inverting the pump nozzle to the side or upside down. Also try not putting the nozzle all the in the filler pipe. Be careful. Hope this helps.

Every time I fill up my 2001 Hyundai Elantra at every station I've been to the pump will constantly cut off during fill-up. I've tried pulling the nozzle further out of the gas tank and pushed it in as far...


When a gas pump does this it is because there is alot of pressure in the gas tank. This is a good thing for you because it means all your seals in the fule system are working good.Next time you fill up open you fule cap and let the car vent for a little bit then try to fill.

Every time I fill up my 2002 Hyundai Elantra at gas station


Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

Pumping gas!


Try pumping the gas a little slower, or turn the nozzle in a different position, sometimes the gas will back up the filler tube, making it think it's full.

you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.
