I recently purchased a 2014 Mazda2 with roughly 55,000 miles on it. Yesterday, for the very first time that I’ve owned the car, I noticed that while attempting to fill the gas tank, the gas pump kept shutting off, as if the tank were full. Having never experienced this when previously filling the tank, I chalked this up to a faulty pump and went on with my business. But this morning, the very same thing happened at a different gas station.
This afternoon, I brought the car to the mechanic. He did some diagnostic work and proposed that the gas filler neck needs to be replaced. Does this sound right to you all? Are there other possibilities? If so, what can I expect to pay to fix the problem?
Thanks in advance for your help.
