You should pick a different gas station. Perhaps one with a working fuel pump. The fuel gun has a valve in it which tells it if your gas tank is full or not. If that pressure valve in the gun isn't working properly, it will always think that your tank is full and stop the pump.

Ok does a 2000 gsxr 750 have a petcock?

The last time I checked these were fuel injected so the petcock would be vacuum controlled. There are rebuild kits etc. Of course being built when it was I understand that the earlier models were made with carbs. The injection system looks a lot like carbs so to be sure I would call the local suzuki dealer, give the serial number off the bike to see that it does have fuel injection.

One clue; If it has a check engine or similar light on the instrument cluster then it is computer controlled and fuel injected.

The fuel is off until engine is running and vacuum opens the valve. I do not think you can or need to shut it off via a lever like the older bikes. I mention this because I get the feeling you are asking so as to remove the fuel tank?

Why does fuel kick back when filling at pump

it's airlocking. when you're pulling the pump trigger to release the fuel, there's no space for the air to come out past it so it kicks back.
either you're using the wrong pump or the filler pipe is incorrect for the vehicle. Then again, some cars just weren't built right as I've had that happen.

My isuzu Ascender is giving me problems every time I try to fill the gas tank It shuts down every second so it gives you a hard time to put gas in

there is a problem with the air trying to get out as the fuel is being pumped in . This activates the shut of in the nozzle of the hose . Try holding the trigger just open so that you control the amount of fuel flowing in . Try rotating the nozzle in the filler a few degrees so that the fuel coming back will no activate the shut of system. I have found some pump systems are extremely sensitive to the air/ fuel flow back so I am selective in which pumps I pull up at for this reason. Remember you do no have to pull the trigger full bore when filling as you can control the setting with your fingers.

I have a paslode model IM250II 16 ga straight finish nailer that I bought used the gun fan and motor runs whin the trigger is pulled but it does not fire when the tip is pressed no pop no puff nothing I...

Fan running when trigger pressed is normal however to make it fire you need to press on the work probe first and the fan should start running, at this point the gas should be injected and pressing the trigger should create the spark to fire the gun, if all works as above but the gun won't fire check the gas, the metering valve on the can should have a yellow ring and when pressing the can nozzle on a hard surface, gas should be released, if not the can either has (a) insufficient gas, (b) the nozzle is not correctly fitted (c) the metering valve is faulty, if the can emits gas the gun will need to be checked for spark and the seals will need checking

Why when i put gas in my car it jump back out

Don,t insert the fuel pump gun all the way down into the fuel filler pipe, pull back on it a bit when your filling the tank then it will not Splash back on you, The fuel filler pipe might of got bent some how, That could cause it to do that .

When the trigger is pulled air blows out a vent at the bottom and the anvil doesn't rotate.

If debris enter the gun, over time the vanes will not move into proper positon and react to air-flow. Vanes can become stuck if stored for long period of time. Pour small amount of diesel fuel into the gun and activate the trigger. The fuel should come out clean, if however black gunk comes out, keep adding fuel until gun is clean. Eventually all the the debris will be washed out and restore function. Good luck

Truck won't start. Fuel to throttle body ok, little sprinkle coming out of injectors not consistant. One crank slight spray next crank nothing but a dribble.

either no fuel pressure or the favourite is the non return valve on the fuel rail ,it has a vacumn pipe running to it ,this pipe cracks and splits so no vacumn to the valve give symptoms you describe

Gas tank backs up when filling, shutting off hose

I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.

Filling up with fuel, pump shuts of continously...

hi if you look into filler pipe you will see a flap/restrictor just inside this is to prevent wron fuel filler nozzle from entering so unless you put the correct fuel nozzle fully into tank fill pipe and this pushes flap open you will experience slow filling ALSO? to put fuel in tank the air inside must be able to displace emit from tank ok this is done via a hose from tank and is usually clipped along side the filler pipe under wheel arch below filler check and ensure this pipe is clear and also free from kinks? as this if blocked will not allow displacement of air from tank as fuel level increases? hope this is clear enough for you to understand?
