2002 rav4 will only hold 7 gallons of gas

Asked by Aug 08, 2016 at 03:19 PM about the 2002 Toyota RAV4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car had to have the strap replaced that holds the gas tank in place. Fix
was done, gas tank was topped off. I drove 200+ miles and filled again. Ever
since that, the tank will only 6.5 gallons before the pump shuts off. I can eek in
another gallon or so, and then I see the gas ... so as fully as I can get without
spilling.

Most likely the EVAP system is not working, preventing you from filling the tank. http://www.aa1car.com/library/evap_system.htm
