Filling Up Gas Tank?

1726 Views 12 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  JetBlack
Ok so, I dont know what causes it but sometimes when I go to fill up I cant press full power on the gas nozzel cause then it just stops like it would if the tank was full, except I fill up at like quarter or half (mostly quarter but if i have to stop at a gas station to get a monster for workout or something) so does anyone else get this? I jsut had the problem where if i move it around in different variations of power (power = how much the handle is pulled down to let the gas out) or depending on how far in I put the nozzel or how much i pull the nozel out, most of the time it'll stil stop when i push full power, a few exceptions when i pushed the gas nozzel all the way in and hit full power it was fine.. its annoying!

It's not your car bro, it's the gas station pump pressure sensors...

I dunno, but I gotta disagree- at least on my car...only filled three times, first two times a second AFTER pump clicked off car puked gas all overitself and the ground- sorry, but this is like my 14th car and NEVER, EVER, AT ANY GAS SATION, has any other vehicle ever refused to take gas or puked gas all over after filling in the 25 years Ive been driving- let alone done both the first two fill ups. tried yet another station last night, put nozzle in normal, low setting and waited.............................filled up without puking for first time(still dribbled out the drain under the gas cap, but wont count that - as long as it aint pouring down the side of the car I'm OK with it. Certain pumps are better, but the tank/fill tube is weird- ever look at it? its probably close to 4 feet long...goes down/up around behind spring, down to one side of tank...and aint much bigger than a garden hose either.
I love the car but the gas fill thing is just the goofy way they designed the tank/ long as I can get gas in to drive it, I'll happily be driving it :)
