The bike will frequently crank but not start. A quick opening of the gas tank lid cures the problem. My theory is that the vent opening on the cap and the rubber vent tube are not lining up properly. BTW it never has fuel starvation while runningI think your theory sounds pretty accurate or one of the vents is just clogged.,,

2002hyundai gas filling problem

The shape of the fill tube to your tank is no longer adequately sized for the new high speed pumps at stations, it is most likely creating splashing in the tube which activates the safety switch on the handle to shut off the pump to prevent accidental over filling and spilling of fuel. Next time insert the handle into your vehicle upside down and this should prevent the problem you are experiencing.

I ran out of gas and now car wont start

You should look for a gas container, go to the nearest gas station, fill it, get back to your car and por the content of your gas container in the refill point of your car. If you don't have a gas container available, maybe you can buy one at the gas station.
Actually make, model and year of your car makes no difference to solve thei sad issue.
Some gas stations won't sell you gas in a container. In this case you should call a towing service and take your car to the gas station.

Stalling (The best I could think of to describe my issue)

Hello tirckydad_4: If this problem begun, immediately after filling your gas tank, my first guess based on your description would be that you bought some bad gas. Try adding some fuel cleaner to your tank. This should help, but the only way to get rid of the bad gas is to use it, or siphon it out and put some gas in from a different gas station. As a tip, try to avoid filling up when you see a fuel tanker re-filling the tanks at the gas stations. Theory goes, then when the fuel tanker is re-filling, the gas station fuel tanks, it is sirring up old sediment that usually has settled at the bottom of the tank. Sediment that has been pumped into cars can cause cars to run sluggish.

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.
