    D-u-u-u-h. I learned that 44 years ago. There was a problem with the fuel tank which Mercedes replaced.

I,m having trouble filling my gas tank. The pump keeps shutting off.

The vent on the tank is restricted and the pump nozzle can't take all the air coming from the tank as it fills. Many gas stations across the country have vapor recovery nozzles designed to capture air from your fuel tank and vent it back into the tank under ground, and out the roof vent pipe on top of the building. It's for fuel vapor emissions reduction. Until you put a few gallons in the tank, pull the boot back a little with your fingers to unseat it from the filler neck, then let go and you should be o.k. If it keeps shuting off after that, then you may have a problem with your own vapor recovery system not working properly. Check other nozzles and see if they all are that way. Mabe it's the station.

When i fuel up my passat the refuel nozzel will kick out about 20 times per tank this is annoying and it does not matter at what gas station

That used to happen alot with many vehicles at my rental car agency. What will help a lot is to set the nozzle just enough in the hole to fuel it up with out spilling it (just hold it a little further out). This will let make sure the fuel isn't running up into the nozzle which is what stops the fuel from spewing. Hope this helps!

I have a 2005 Yukon 125K miles - fuel guage

what's happening, is the level sensor in the fuel tank is getting worn out, and it thinks it's out of fuel when you actually still 1/2 to 1/4 of a tank left. The only way to rectify this is to put a new fuel pump in, as it is only available as an entire unit. If you can live with it, it'll probably last quite some time, but if not, you'll have to look at a pump assembly. Hope you get it situated soon! Feel free to reply back if you have other questions

2003 KIA Sarento - trying to pure gas in filler tubr to gas tank

i used to have the same problem with one of my older ford trucks. what happens is because the gas is filling up the tube so quick, it forms a reverse vacume and causes all the gas to come back at you. all i used to do is when i went to get gas i would have to not pull the lever on the gas pump as hard (bout half way) and it would take the gas very nicely.

Nozzel from the gas station clicks off but tank is not full

Are you putting the nozzel all the way in the inlet? Try putting it only part way in so the back wash doesn't hit the shut off sensor on the nozzel.

Gas pump keeps shutting off when fueling

you have a vapor vent issue. The fuel filler pipe has a vent inside of it to let out air as you pump gas in. If no air comes out, it will kick of the nozzle
The other possbility is that it is a poor design and others are having issues too. Cal your dealer service manager, not a service writer and ask him if there is an issue. Write or email Chrysler and ask them too. If the fuel filler pipe has a sharp bend and goes up hill at all, that will back up the fuel fill. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Also, try inserting the nozzle just a couple of inches. Report back please.

2006 jeep liberty will not take gas keeps clicking off gas pump. 3rd time at dealer. dealer has no idea what's wrong i have the same problem what is the solution

The gas pumps are designed to click off when the tank is full,so either the metal flapper"anti-siphon" is obstructing the fuel nozzel,or the vent from the tank to the fuel filler is plugged and the air pressure coming back up the filler neck is clicking pump off,try pulling the nozzel out a little and see if it helps.also another thought which is most likely visually look at the rubber fuel filler tubes there are 2 the big one is fuel the little is for a vent see if they have any kinks or tight bends pinching them and restricting fuel flow.

2005 mustang, when filling with gas, the pump nozzel shuts off. I can hear the fill pipe gurgle then the pump shuts off. it will only take 15 cents worth of gas at a time. when your trying to put $ 20.00...

Gas Pump pressure could be cause, try slower pump handel setting. If that doesn't correct it, filler neck maybe issue. Check vent tube for kinks or obstruction. If that doesn't solve it, speak with dealer service department, sometimes Factory knows of issue and my have service information at dealerships or call factory and ask them if they know of problem.

99 mercury tracer won't let gas into tank from station nozzels.

Modern gas pumps have a sensor that shuts off the flow of fuel when the tank is full or it senses near the nossle tip. They also have a back splash guard that keeps fuel from splashing back on the handle. If you have some sort of flap inside your fuel tank mouth the pump may sense that the tank is already full or the back splash guard may be keeping the nozzle from fully inserting into the tank causing the same out come. I have a 1977 Triumph Spitfire that requires me to hold the fuel pump in place or the fuel won't pump. Try holding the fuel nozzle in place and see if that makes any difference.
