The exhaust on the gc doesn't run close to any fuel/vent lines

Topped the tank off today. It must've been the nozzle from the pump I was using.

Re: Problem while getting gas tonight

I've had that same thing happen on my Jeep and my old Charger. I think it has to do with those vapor cutoff shields that are required at gas stations now. If you get one that's extra sensitive, it kicks off. Usually I can make it work by rotating the nozzle to 3 or 9 o'clock and slowing the flow.

Mine gets 11.something


I personally never use the fastest setting. I haven't had an issue that I can remember refueling. However 99% of the time I am refueling with less than an eighth of a tank.

Same thing happens to me once in a blue moon, I think it's the crappy fuel intake plastic piece of junk that already cracked once.

The trick is to turn the pump handle upside down when that happens. It happens every once in a while and really not much of an issue.
