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?

3 Answers


it could be the evap or air tube for the tank its pressuring up the tank making it seem full to the gas pumps.. matters on what it is it could be just cleaning the evap or cleaning out the breather hose or up to a grand in repairs it matters how its plugged

Thank you Matthew. You were very helpful. Bless you!
