Default Spilling Gas

Recently just got my Ram and am learning alot about it. One of my problems depending on where i go i shove the nozzle all the way to put gas in it as would i do with any vehicle. Anyways my dilemma comes when the tank becomes full.. the auto shut off at the pump seems to be delayed or something is weird about my tank because gas spills back out whether i fill it holding the trigger by hand or letting it do it by itself. It bothers me alot since i just spilled gas out on the ground that i paid for. Plus it gets on the body which will cause it to rust (where i live) so than i must go wash it. Any thoughts because this is annoying?

I have had the same problem with my Nitro! Even pumping the gas slow she spits up! I have noticed certain gas stations are worse than others. Knock on wood she hasn't spit up in a while! Even had the dealer check it out and they said they couldn't find anything wrong with her!

Know this doesn't help you much but you are not alone!

Hmmm, interesting.... I know the pumps I tend to use, are so sensitive that if the gas splashes up the filler neck, the nozzle will shut off, but if I am not mistaken, those things are supposed to shut off when the fuel reaches the level where there is no more air, which is why most people pull it out and keep filling until there is no room left, that and gas is too expensive to waste, so I feel for you on that one, but sounds like a pump problem to me.

Just a shot in the dark but can your vent hose be clogged for some reason?

that sounds almost certainly like a pump problem- have you tried going to other gas stations and seeing if you have the same problem there?

To some degree it apparently varies by state. Must be differing emmision rules about when the shutoff point needs to be. I see your from michigan, so I'm suprised to hear that you have this issue. I am from michigan originally, and I had to fill up until it clicked off 3 times to get the tank full on my old car. When I moved to florida I discovered that all the the pumps here cause the spit-up you decribed on the first shut off, regardless of if you lock the pump handle or hand pump.

I did live near one station that had a pump with the autoshutoff broken. They put a sign on it to warn you but I was in a rush the first time and didn't notice the sign. While I was washing the windshield I hear splashing liquid and look around to my horror to discover gas running down the side of the car and disappearing into the snow.
