Hello and welcome, you may have a bad vent valve sticking shut. the first thing you will need to do is have the system scanned for trouble codes. if this doensy turn up anything, the next thing to do is have the evap system tested with a smoke tool.

I have a 2000 Hyundai Accent. Whenever I go to fill up my gas tank, the pump clicks every minute or so (like it does when your tank is full). Is my float stuck at full? How do I get it unstuck?


Kaylie, try letting off on the gas pump trigger a little and pull nozzle out of fill port approx. 1/2", this will normally slow the flow rate of pump down and let air behind gas and stop shutting off. Some pumps are just set to pump too fast/ too much volume. If this does not work for you, have a Tech. check and see if there is some other restriction,plugged vent or problem with the vapor canister. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

2003 Honda Civic Gas Guage says 3/4 full on full tank of gas


The fuel meter inside the tank has malfunctioned. One option is to replace the fuel pump. Second option is to bring down the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump and check see if the metering rod was bent. Now if you are not having problems with the fuel pump. I would deal with the gauge being low and continue running the car until the time comes to replace the fuel pump.

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.

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.

1995 Saab 900 Won't Take A Fill Up


Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm
