Ok, so my 2000 ford f150 WILL NOT let me pour gas into it for more than 5 SECONDS without it turning off the fuel dispenser handle and or spilling back gas out of the filler opening…It’s not too bad for a PATIENT man/woman that doesn’t mind spending 25 MINUTES to pour in one gallon of gas!
Ok, that was an exaggeration (I’m frustrated lol). But that ‘is’ the problem. No matter what angle I try to put the nozzle, doesn’t matter. Now, truth of the matter is IF I can hold the dispenser open just enough to let gas TRICKLE into the filler pipe, I’m good. But that literally takes like 25 minutes to fill the tank.
So first question is: Any idea’s or suggestions? (THANK YOU!)
Second question: Can anyone explain the purpose of the air line that goes down the side of the fill pipe into the gas tank? I assume it is to let air out of the tank as gas is put into the tank. But here is why I ask: The air line that comes up out of the top of my tank…goes up above my gas filler pipe, and then drops down parallel to the gas metal line. In other words the rubber part of the air line seems to be too long to just lay across the top of the tank, beneath the gas filler metal line. I was wondering if that might a problem. Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
