We just purchased a 2003 elantra, and seem to have trouble filling it up with gas....filler neck seems to not be able to take the gas fast enough and shuts the nozzle off, even at slow discharge rates, and backing out the nozzle a bit. Any help would be great!!
I would start by having your shop check you filler neck if rubber could bent or blocked , also could be the float in you fuel pump may not be acting up . I would start by checking these things first .
Mine is a 2004, and there was some electrical problem (caused the same thing). Except the first time it happened we were stranded on vacation!!! (The car wasn't taking any gas at all) then we tried putting it in upside down. Worked like a charm. Consider getting your electrical looked at but in the mean time put the gas in upside down.
did you by any chance live in california and bought the car outside of california?
california has different nozzles on their pumps from the rest of the states.
I had this problem in Yuma, AZ as well as Phoenix, AZ.
try a place with brand new pumps. sometimes the valve in the nozzle goes bad. i had the same thing happen in illinios (where i live).
