The vent tube is plugged(small tube next to filler tube), you need to blow out w/compressed air.

Land rover gas tank won't fill,

Fuel comes back out fill tube when fueling 04titan king cab


With the information you've provided, one cam only imagine that you are obviously over filling the tank.

So this leads me to suspect that maybe (just maybe) your gas gauge is saying you are on empty, or 1/4 tank or a 1/2 tank whatever, etc. And you are wanting to make sure it is full.

I presume it always says this and that perhaps you need to have the sending unit replaced inside your fuel tank.

Otherwise, if all things are in working order and you meant to say that the Pump Nozle that the service station uses (where you fuel up) is not shutting off when your tank is full.

One of two things are happening,

In the case of a pump handle that has an auto lever, either they have a faulty pump nozle, in which case you need to talk with them about this.

OR

It is a manual Nozle, in which case you are holding the lever personally and are over filling your tank...

It would be advisable to look up the total fuel capacity of your tank and make a note of approximately how many gallon are in it before fueling up.

This way, if you know there are say around 5 gallons and you have an 15 gallon tank.
Adding even 10 gallons you would be running the risk of over flowing since you are only estimating say 5 gallons at the beginning, maybe it is 5 1/2 or even closer to 6. Therefore only about 9 gallons could be added without over flowing...

Hopefully you'll have found something useful in this.

Good Luck and happy motoring

I accidentaly put diesel fuel into my 2000 Acura 3.5 RL, the tank is 18 gallons, it was at about 2 gallons when I filled the tank with 4 gallons of diesel, I got the car towed back to my house, what steps,...


Very easy! Get a siphon and get all of the fuel out through the fill hole. Then put 5-10 gallons of good fuel with a can of Seafoam this will help to dilute any remaining diesel that is left. Start and let idle for at least 10 minutes. It may run rough for a little bit but will clear up and you will be ok! Good Luck!

I have observed this condition just recently. There is a flap in the neck of the tank (not on the filler tube) that prevents fuel froim draining outof the tank in the event of a roll-over condition. The only way to rectify this is to replace the fuel tank.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

Filling with gas


There is a fuel tank vent tube that runs down the filler tube to let the air out of the tank as you fill it, these tubes get kinked, replace the tube, this is part of the filler neck assembly so the whole thing must be changed out.
