Gas tank on a 2001 Camry with loose filler tube

We just bought a used car and when we filled it with gas for the first time realized the gas tank has probably been replaced.The filler tube is loose on the inside of the gas lid.Is this normal for a replaced tank?I assume the tank has bands holding it up so I'm hopeing this is not a problem.Thanks...jeri

    does the filler tube need to have a seal around it to keep it snug or is it alright loose?

Anything is possible, you could look to see if the fuel tank appears newer then the rest of the under body, however a new fuel tank is not such a bad thing, if it were installed properly...

    It is secured to the body with bolts, and no there is no seal.
    Other connections are to the flexible rubber filler hose and a smaller flexible rubber vent hose, that are affixed with hose clamps.

Loosing power when drining

Hi Jennifer-
I believe I may be able to help you with the gas spillage you are having when filling the tank. This happened on my 1998 Toyota Camry.
One day, even though I was low on fuel, the attendant had trouble adding gas to my tank. Gas would spill during filling or the nozzle would click off (as though it was full) even though it was not. I had to stand there myself and slowly add gas until the tank was full.
I learned that my car had a thin vent tube that would run from the gas tank to the gas tank opening. As gas is rushing into the tank during filling, the air that is being displaced from the gas tank escapes through this tube. This tube had rusted closed a bit and was restricting the air flow escaping from the tank during pumping causing the problems I described. Once this tube was replaced, my problem was solved!
Hope this helps!

Have the filler hose checked for a break. The hose that connects the filler tube to the gas tank. Sounds like it is loose or broken, when you turn the corner the gas slops out of the tank cause the filler tube is not connected good.

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.

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy that all of sudden won't allow me fill gas with a gas pump, but I can pour the gas in with a gas can.

There is a pressure regulating hose that is attached to the top of the filler tube, if this hose has collapsed or is blocked the pressure in the tank builds up and you get a back splash when filling. Check this hose. You may have to take the filler tube and hose loose in order to get to it. If it's not collapsed or blocked but looks old and dry rotted, replace it.
