    Default Gas tank

    So I am having this problem, for some reason when I go to fill up gas it wont stay flowing. It keeps stopping as if it was full, but its not full it will be almost empty when I get gas. I dont know what it could be and its starting to irritate me to be honest.

    Any help would be great. thanks guys.

    Do you have a body lift, I've seen it where the filler tube gets bent out of shape and the fuel backs up as if it were full and shuts off the pump. take a look at the filler tube itself, make sure it's not collapsed or kinked. There also is a check ball in most newer vehicles that can sometimes get stuck which would cause the same symptoms.

    Also check the "Breather hose" thats how the tanks breath when filling up.
    Some filler pipes have the breather incorporated inside the tube.

    don't push the nozzle all the way in. sometimes the curve of the nozzle tube isn't parallel with the filler tube and creates a small backpressure.

    The new BS gas pumps have the boot that causes pressure build up and that causes your problem. Leave it partially out and you should be fine. Some stations put the boot on loose enough to be removed too. If that's the case pull the boot off the nozzle till your done. All the green weenies out there worrying about a lil vapor excaping. Yet no matter what they do, the shyt they come up with to prevent that causes more gas to spill than if they left things alone to begin with. the new gas cans are a joke.

    It is a problem with '06 Jeep Wranglers, my wife's Unlimited as the same issue and Red02TJ's recommendation works most of the time. On pumps that have the recovery boot that makes a seal, like many on Base, I find the if I hold the top of the rubber boot back a little, so it won't make a seal then it won't shut off.

    I did read something on another forum about the issue with '06 Wranglers, if I can find it again I will post it. The article also talked about how to move the neck of the fill tube so you can actually put 20 gals of gas into the tank.
