    The filler pipe gets full and you have to wait till it drains and keep repeating this till the tank is full.The breather pipe below the filler pipe is not blocked.Cars dont get airlocks but petrol tanks do,has to be an airlock otherwise petrol would go in.

Sounds like evaporative emission vent solenoid is sticking closed. Not allowing fuel vapor to vent while fueling.

You have a problem is a device called the vapor recovery system for the gas filler neck and tank. You will need a dealer to find the problem.

What causes the petrol to leak everytimr i refuel?


The filler breather seems to be leaking. This is a pipe that comes from the top of the tank to the fuel filler hose very near to the tank cap. Also check the filler hose neck itself.

I have a 1999 Ford Escort Wagon. The gas tank will fill about 3/4 full and then the gas hose shut down. It then takes about ten minutes to get the rest of the gas into the tank. What is the problem?


on the wagon thay made the vent breather for tank when filling to long unfortunitly their nothing you can do other than feed it really slow backing the pump hose off just alittle but not always affective.

  3. Remove the rear exhaust pipe and muffler assembly.

  6. Remove the fuel filler pipe protector.
  7. Raise and support the vehicle safely on jackstands.
  8. Remove the fuel filler, air vent and delivery hoses.
  9. On AWD vehicles, disconnect the air breather hoses and evaporation hose from the pipes.
