Can't fill gas tank
When I go to put gas in this car, it will only take anot 5 or 6 gallons, then it starts "kicking Back", and won't take any more fuel
Anyone have a clue why???
Try backing up the nozzle from the tank and fill easy. When there is air pressure in the gas tank it pushes on a little medal part inside the nozzle to shut it off (hence-it thinks the tank is full).
You sometimes have to turn the fuel nozzle upside down that, is what I have found anyway. hope this helps!
sounds like you may have in the past overfilled it several times,kept pumping gas in when the pump nozzle clicked off,this will overflow the EVAP system,your trusted mechanic can drain it,excess gas.
Papa; THANX; I bought it recently from my trusted Mercedes guy, who spent a year or two at the factory servicing M-B owned vehicles, and has serviced my old 190 for about 15 years. I will contact him in the next couple of days :)
try all the helpful hints here, but its more likely tnan not that the charcoal canister(emissions component) or the filler neck tube are faulty
Have had the same problem for 2 years, I have fitted new fill tube, replaced charcoal canister, checked vent pipes are clear,. I am now of the opinion that something is blocking the main inlet to the tank and when fuelling a certain amount of fuel goes in the main tube but when it fills up drains over the valve system in the filler tube and fills the tank slowly. This will be my next check
