Angry 06 mustang has tank problem??

I have a 2006 mustang and everytime I pump gas it spits it back put, I have to pump about 6-8 cents at a time for it to work and it takes half an hour to fill up a full tank, and I can't take it anymore..I've tried turning the nozzle different ways and nothing has changed, it does the same thing as every gas station in town..HELPPPP!!!

Don't let the tank go below half full before filling up. That's what I do never had a problem after that.

It's a known issue for '05-'07's. Here's a link to the TSB:


Some have found turning the nozzle upside down helps, but it sounds like you've tried that. You can also try starting to fuel slowly before pulling the handle tight.

Yeah, +1 on filling it before it's less than half full. That's not always easy to do.

Mine does it at times, and I do the upside down nozzle approach, just to get some gas going in; sometimes, especially if I'm really low, it will take a few tries to get some gas going in. Once enough gets in, I can reposition the nozzle to normal position and get it the rest of the way filled.

Pita indeed.

Get used to it. Most of us have gotten used to it as well.

It's a part of owning a Ford. There are little things that are sometimes not worth the effort of fixing. Just pretend that you are making love to her. Eventually it will go all the way in.
