Re: Gas pump stops before tank is full
I used to have the same problem on my G35 coupe. Sometimes it would only let me put 10 or 15$ of gas when i was on empty.
The problem was with the design of the fuel filler neck. Air pockets/vapours would get trapped and somehow the backflow prevention on the pump would get triggered. It was a TSB, but I bought the car when the warranty was already over, and I didnt want to pay to fix it. The solution on the TSB was to replace with a revised filler neck.
What i noticed was: 1) it only happened at shell and petro-canada gas stations. It didnt ever happen at esso. 2) if I only held the nozzle at 3/4 of the way, it would actually fill up and then stop when it was actually full.
No idea if this is any where near the same issue as I used to have, but it sounds the same and that is what I did to deal with it. I really hope that this doesnt become an issue with the jeep too. I havent had any issues yet, but I've only filled up twice.
