    Default Can't add gas... Pump constantly shuts off

    Thai has been discussed before, but....
    This use to be an intermittent issue in the winter on my '11 SES. Now I spend 15 minutes at the pump filling it up, holding the pump at 1/4 throttle every time I fill up.
    God damn POS Ford!
    Anyone have a way to circumvent the charcoal filter or venting somehow?

    On a positive note, I can now actually FILL my tank to full... Previously when the pump auto shut off the way it should, the gauge would always read just 4/5th full (and I read there was a TSB for a gauge issue not reading properly, and just assumed it pertained to me.)
    Nice to see that now I can get another 70-80km more out of a tank of gas!

    Mine has been doing it since I bought it new 2years ago. Never had the time or money to get it fixed... I don't know why they made a crappy venting system for it....

    I have this problem and never fixed it either. When I get gas I use my house key to prop open the fuel handle just enough to fill it so it doesn't shut-off. Usually takes about 5-6 minutes to pump a full tank. It sucks, but not worth the $400 or whatever someone said it costs to fix it.
