Since your car is somewhat new, have the dealer look at it, might be something wrong with the vent or the Gas filler neck.


don't use the "clicker" just fill it by hand- also, do not fill it all the way to the top of the neck- as the Tao Te Ching says: "Rather than fill it to the brim, better to have stopped in time" Do it this way and it is safer, and it is better for your car- I guess that your clicking habit has you thinkin' that you have to fill it ALL the way up- are you going on a long trip, or somwhere outside civilization where you will be hundreds of miles from the nearest gas station?
