The vent tube is in the filler neck, quite often the gas tank needs to be dropped to remove it

I have trouble filling gas tank on my 13 F-250 pump shuts off takes forever to fill. What might cause this?


The system not venting properly is usually the most common source of this issue. Check filler tube/vent tube for any restrictions. Also try keeping pump nozzle part way out of filler tube.If no restrictions found, possible defective tank vent valve on top of tank. Tank will usually have to be removed to access this valve

MY 2002 KIA SPORTAGE GAS FILL TUBE TAKES GAS VERY SLOWLY OR BACKS UP SHUTTING OFF PUMP


The vent tube on the filler neck is probably clogged or pinched somewhere. If you get under the car and look at the filler neck you should see another tube coming from it... that's the vent tube. Either try getting a piece of wire through it or you might be able to blow compressed air into the tank. One of those methods should clear the blockage.

Hi; for some reason it has become almost impossible to fill the gas tank without the fill nozzle clicking off over and over again. we have had this scoped for possible obstructions and none were found....


It sounds like there is a problem with your fuel tank vent tube. It may be clogged, which won't allow air to escape as gas is being pumped in the tank. Typicall the vent tube is mounted as part of the fuel tank filler neck.

When I fill-up my ford contour the gas pump keeps clicking off. can only put in a little gas at a time


Check the vent tube which is alongside the gas fill tube. It's either kinked, bent, pinched, or some how blocked, not allowing easy flow of gas into the tank. Once the tube is open, you will not have trouble. You don't give the year, it's possible it needs to be replaced (comes as a unit with the fill tube) if rusting badly.

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
