I have trouble putting gas in the tank - it acts like it is full and pops out and I can only get a little in at a time.

Asked by Dec 08, 2011 at 09:00 PM about the 2006 Mercury Mountaineer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It seems like something is blocking  and not allowing the gas to continue flowing into the tank.  Could it be the air tube?  Is this expensive?
