Re: can't fuel xg350 2002 at gas station difficult
There is a tube that runs along side the filler neck to the gas tank, this tube allows air to escape from the gas tank as you fill it, if it gets kinked or obstructed then you have a hard fill situation, pull the filler neck/vent assembly out and replace it.

at a gas station? you cant put diesel in your gas car at a gas station the nozzle of the diesel pump is ALOT larger than that of a gas pump it will not fit into your filler neck. hope this helps. ,Vinny
Try changing the fuel filter. If that does not help, have someone test the injector pump for pressure. Last would be a compression test on the cylinders. Drain oil and replace oil filter very soon.
What has happened is the diesel fuel is a lubricant and gasoline is a solvent. As gasoline is much thinner, it could wash down the cylinders and get into the oil pan thinning the oil and ruining the bearings. This would be the reason to test the pressure in the cylinders to find out if you lost compression with the rings in the cylinders.
Next, the injector pump for the diesel has seals and tolerances for inside components. Again, since gasoline is a solvent and not a lubricant, the internal parts could be worn out by not having diesel fuel to lubricate the injector pump parts.
If someone working at the fuel station made this mistake, all the costs should be paid by the station. This is something which could be taken to court if the station does not pay.
the extra fuel is "reserve" to get you to a fuel station... this is normal. If you were to run it completely out you will damage your fuel pump, fuel is used to cool the fuel pump. Soo... DON'T run it so low!
First of all, If you recently bought gas from a place you've never been to before, drain out the old gas, and put in a fresh tank from somewhere you trust. You may have water in the tank. After that, if that doesn't solve the problem, or you trust the place you bought from, go ahead and check all your external gas filters. If that doesn't solve it, I think that's when you're right: It's either the fuel pump, or the fuel filter, and in modern vehicles, both are in the gas tank, and both are very difficult to get at.
yep i seen it in happen .i was at a gas station a guy drove car to the gas station on empty.he fill his tank up .could not get it to crank .some cars you have to restart fuel pump when run out of gas. like chrysler.you use a scanner. but chervrolet you run low over heat damage the pump.it has to stay submerge gas to keep it cool. check fuel pump pressure.it should be 41 - 47 psi.
Check the Fuel filter, And Also Check the Fuel Pressure for what your 4 Runner calls for, Not to mention Did you Buy Cheap gas for a Gas station that you Normally Dont use? Might have Watered down gas..
A Stupid But Sometime working Item is to Tap the Fuel Filter a few times with the back of a Screw driver to knock the "Dirt" in the Filter around and see if it start as normal,
If So Replace the Filter, But at 142,000 your about Due for a Fuel Pump..
