Gas pumps shut off prematurely

1642 Views 22 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  FJ-6MT
At almost any gas station I use, the pump shuts off when the tank is about 3/4 full. Restarting the pump gets another gallon or two. A couple of cycles and the tank is actually full. Obviously not a showstopper, but pretty annoying. This is a fairly recent development, but not tied to any work on the vehicle. Any ideas about what's going on and how to fix this?

All these tips are helpful, though some don't mesh with the fact that the car filled fine for years, but all of a sudden has started showing this problem.

Good point.
That is strange. I wonder if your regular fuel stop has gotten new nozzles?
It's happening at pretty much every gas station I use.
