The gas won't go into the gas tank

Asked by Sep 22, 2019 at 04:28 PM about the 1965 Ford Galaxie

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 and I am trying to put gas into the gas tank and it won't go down into the tank.  It is not clogged up or anything.  The gas won't go into the tank for some reason.  Do you know why that would be?

The gas tank vent is not venting.

Yes, sounds like the gas tank vent hose is clogged. On a '65 model the tank is vented to the atmosphere by a piece of hose underneath the vehicle. Hope that helps! Jim
