When I fill up I have to do it at about half speed or it thinks its full and shuts off. Today I took a look at the filler neck and couldn't really see anything wrong. Can anybody point me in the right direction about what to tackle next? There appears to be a switch that is opened when the tank nozzle is inserted but I cant really tel if its working properly. Vent hose seems to be clear....


Any help would be great app'd.

I agree. I purchased mine in Arizona and as i made the trip back to Canada it got worse and worse. Takes a good 10 minutes to actually fill it up. I can hear the fuel coming back up and then it spills all over the side of the truck....sucks

Mine does it as well. There is no fix per se unless your filler neck/tube is bent. In my case I can't stick the filler hose all the way down as the flow is too great given the diameter or angle. Pulling out a tad works for me.

I have this same problem. I have to pull the nozzle out a bit.

I've only had it overflow once though. With the cost of premium, I really watch it.

The new very sensitive pumps do not jibe with the p38 vent very well, even if clear. Does same thing for my suburban, so I pull it out a tad. It does work better to fill slowly for pressure to equalize better, which is why it is such a pita on the top half of the tank.
