    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.

    The filling up issue has happened to me just a few times, and I think it's always been with the same gas station (BP). Does this happen to you no matter the gas station? What about the particular pump?

    I think that happened to me once. I blamed the gas station pump...

    In my case, there is absolutely no connection to the gas station or pump. I've tested it out by moving to a different pump at the same station and then drove down the street to a different gas station. Makes no difference.

    For me, it only happens after I've driven in the rain or through lots of standing water or slush. I'm not convinced that water is getting in the vent system though because I'm on the 3rd set of ventilation components and that's never fixed the problem. I think the electrical connection to those components doesn't like to get wet. The plan is to crawl under the car and water proof it. Then I'll test that theory out.

    For now, if there is rain in the forecast, I'll fill up beforehand.

    Mine did that briefly a couple of times, but not since, however I've had a couple of P0456 codes pop up over the last month or so. After perusing the intarwebz a bit, my first guess was it's the silly cap not seating or sealing properly, so I used the funnel spout to rattle around the flapper in the cap. Also, each time I've filled it, I used the spout of the pump to do the same. I haven't seen a code in several weeks after the last couple of fill-ups. The cost for a plastic tube of coal is pretty ridiculous.

    Its your vent system for your gas tank, usually a charcoal canister type that gets clogged, or the valve malfunctions. Happened on other vehicles to me amd this was the fix!
