Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
Keeping the vehicle running during a fill up is a definite NO NO! there is the increased risk of a fire(very bad) the possibikity of someone stealing your car(bad) and the increase for the problem you are experianceing( not so bad, fixable and preventable). the reason youre having the trouble is youre essentially flooding the engine with raw gas. while the engine is running it creates vaccuum in the evaporative emission system. in a nutshell, its constantly sucking the fumes out of the gas tank and burning them by running it thru the engine, there is a small valve in the tank thats supposed to be exposed to air in the tank, when you fill the tank with the engine running you are drawing this air out while the fuel is being added and you are more than likely sucking the raw fuel into the charcoal canister and its becoming flooded with fuel instead of vapor. after you wait about 10 min this exess fuel has evaporated enough that just the vapor is being drawn into the engine again and allowing it to start. in short dont keep the car running while filling, dont fill past where the hose shuts off the first time, trying to cram an extra half gallon into the tank, and this should no longer be an issue.
