Gas overflows while filling up
 
I've been having my truck for a little over 2 years now and just recently started having this problem. Every time I fill up with gas the pump shuts off and gas overflows from the tank. I thought it might have been the pump at the local station so I tried going to another station only to have the tank overflow again. Any ideas what may be causing this?

I have had the same thing happen, not everytime though just random. I would like to know too. Mine will bubble like there is air in there somewhere.

There's a problem with the tank venting during refueling. It could be a tank or EVAP system problem, so the dealer needs to handle it.

I dropped it off at the dealership this morning. I will let y'all know what the outcome is. Thanks for the reply.

This happened to me this morning filling up for the first time! I was like WTF!!!!

Geez, I don't want to have to bring it back to the dealer already. I know for sure all the Ford and Chevy guys at work will give me a hard time about it since we all joke with each other!! :smiledown:

Just got a call from the dealership and they said it was a faulty tank. He didnt go into much detail but they are replacing the tank under warranty.

That's pretty much what I expected to hear.

You nailed it the first time. Thanks for the help.

This only happens to me when I try to put more in after the initial automatic pump stop.

I generally slow the fuelling down when I hear it start to get full, to make sure I do get in as much as possible without having to restart after the stop.
