Ford Escape - Capless tank - gas dropping quickly after fueling

Asked by Jan 09, 2015 at 10:32 AM about the 2014 Ford Escape

Question type: General

I just filled my Ford Escape with the capless fuel tank. Was able to fill it but then when I
started driving, I noticed the gas dropping rapidly. I checked to ensure the fuel door was
closed and am not able to figure this out.
Has anybody else had this experience or have recommendations?

1 Answer

Was your car running while you filled it? I just did this....was on a quarter tank, stopped to fill on way to Jersey Shore ( left car running while I fueled ), took off, gauge didn't move at all and in 30 minutes, gauge said 5 miles to empty. I pulled in another gas station and it filled $48.00 of gas! So, I paid at station earlier, no gas went in, but I paid for $30.00 gas at that station. DO NOT FILL WITH ENGINE RUNNING.....this is the second time this has happened to me in my 2015 Explorer Limited.
