This happened all the time with my van and then with my taxicab. the culprit is a combination of a slow angled fill tube in the car, and the new safety things on the gas pumps. What the attendant had me do is angle the pump so its not completely inside the hole, but just about the whole way so theres no suction, and making sure its still secure.

When pumping gas it kicks off and flapper is bent


There is an automatic valve in the filler neck of your fuel tank that is designed to keep gas from jumping back up the filler neck and out the fill fitting. If that valve is bad, you'll have a heck of a time filling the tank, as the nozzle is constantly kicking off and your fill rate is VERY slow. Probably best to take it to a dealer or your trusted mechanic. They might want to replace the flapper at the same time.

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.


Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

It takes 20 minutes to fill my gas tank. this has just started. The fuel keeps backing up in the filler neck and the pump keeps kicking off.


The tank venting system is malfunctioning -- likely an obstruction in it -- best bet is to take it to a shop for diagnosis & repair.

theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

Car acted like the battery died/cannot fill gas tank.


Evaporator vent silenoid at rear by gas tank is most likely stopped up. Is the check engine light on? If so, take to Auto Zone and get them to scan it for free. Get codes only and post them.

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.

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.
