engine stalls right after filling up tank

Asked by Aug 12, 2012 at 04:10 PM about the 2007 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 mazda3 2.0 with 96,000m and recently when I've gone to put gas the engine stalls a few times before finally turning over and staying on. This only happens when I put gas, otherwise my cars works fine. Since owning the car new I have had the bad habit of letting the tank go near empty before filling it...could this be the cause of my problem, or could it be something more? My mechanic says I need a new fuel pump. Can you offer me some insight and is there anything else I can do for my car before resorting to the costly fuel pump? Thanks
