The 7th generation Toyota Celica has a really tight fuel-filler-tube (or what it's called in English). I also thought something had to be wrong the first time I fueled mine. Then I understood I just had to twist the pump handle about 90 degrees, so that the sensor at the tip of the pump comes up a bit, then start the pump slowly.

I'm SO looking forward to electric cars with robot-exchangeable batteries (check out Project Better Place). Toyota should give us this on the 8'th gen Celica. ;)

Had this happen to me a few days ago at my usual gas station. Took the car to the dealer to get checked out and everything. Turned out someone must have messed with the pump I was using at the time. Went to another station and filled up just fine.

Can't add gas without the pump kicking off

Most cars today have a vent line coming out of the tank to let air escape as you add fuel, it usually terminates right at or near the filler cap. If this line gets kinked or clogged, the air can't excape as you fuel and the air push back is just like the tank is full, which is why the pump keeps cutting off.

When fueling the pump keeps clicking off as if the tank is full

The fuel cap won't make a difference as the fuel cap is off when filling with fuel.
This is quite common with a number of vehicles, yet not necessarily anything to do with any fault of the vehicle, as it may simply be the sensitivity of the fuel pump nozzle. If the vehicle is otherwise operating normally, then I would suggest that there is no issue with it.
I would instead try angling the fuel pump nozzle or withdrawing it slightly, but not all the way out when filling with fuel.

When trying to put gas in my car, the gas kicks back like it's full but it is not full i don't understand why we can't put fuel in the tank

Your car has a EPA mandated fuel vapor recovery system as part of the fuel tank filler device, this is malfunctioning and is blocking air from being vented while filling which causes the fuel to kick off. You must see the dealer to have this diagnosed. This may be covered under an extended warranty for emission system components.

Having problem with trying to gas up the elantra. gas pump handle keeps clicking off. have to squeeze handle real lightly to fill up tank takes a long time to fill up. help

I know you probably won't like my answer, but seeing as I am a service tech for gas stations, the nozzle has a safety feature which shuts/kicks off when gas splashes back into the nozzle, thus keeping the gas from running over when the car is unattended and nozzle is locked. You can try pulling the nozzle back til it is barely in the tank or try a different gas station as some nozzles are different. As it is the shape of the fill tube on your vehicle. Hope this helped Tim

Can't pump gas into tank. It constantly shuts off like the tank is full. The gass keeps backing up and then slowly goes down. What could it be?

You most likely have a plugged EVAP system vent valve and/or a charcoal vapor cannister. If either one is plugged then the air trapped in the tank can't get out as you add fuel. The fuel will back up in the filler neck and cause the fuel filler nozzle to kick out as you are attempting to fill the tank. The vent valves are prone to plugging if you drive on a lot of gravel or dusty roads but I have seen them plug up even on vehicle that never leave the asphalt. You may need to go to a good service facility or dealership to figure exactly out where the problem is.

Jeep kicks over but does not start ,,full tank gas

If carbureted, look down into carb & move throttle linkage...see if you have fuel squirting into throat. If not accelerator pump in carb is bad.Or there is no fuel reaching carb. (Ill assume for now that you checked and have spark at plugs, right?)
Does choke close when cold? Did this happen after warm up (before no start at all happened) You have to do some testing ...I can't see it from here!!! Post back if during tests you find anything strange or that need explanation.

2004 chevy 2500 wont take gas into gas tank

I am having the same problem. When turning the pump on full speed it will pump for a few seconds before kicking the pump off like the tank is full even though there is no gas in the tank. I can pump gas if I barely start the pump and hold it by hand but very very slowly so it takes about 20 minutes to fill up. Its not the gas station or the way I am holding the nozzle as I have stopped 20 different places and tried every way imaginable to hold the nozzle. I have changed the filler neck, charcoal canister, and the sensor/filter that is on the side of it that I believe opens to allow fuel vapor to escape and let pressure off the tank when the truck is not running... still no luck. When I had the fuel next off there is a check valve that is made into the top next part of the tank that is spring loaded. I figured this was to keep gas from running back out in the event of a rollover and possibly keep someone from putting a hose down the next and stealing gas. At this point that is the only thing that could possibly be causing the pump to contiune to kick off every few seconds when filling up the tank. Next is to change the tank I suppose unless someone has already ran into this issue and can tell me what I need to do to fix the problem.
