The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

Auto gas pump nozzles shut off frequently and prematurely. This has occured at various filling stations. Have to practically dribble the gas in to get gas flow to continue.


it sounds like the filler tube is collapsed or the breather vent is pulged more than likely its the filler tube have someone get on the ground and look from underneath

06 Mustang Gas Tank; Last 2 times I couldn't take in more than 7 gal fuel before filler shut off occurred. After that, filler would shut off after every .1 gal. When at Costco with 10 cars waiting to...


There is a fault with the fuel tanks in the 06 cars (and some 05). It is a well known problem and Ford has issued a service bulletin on the issue.

It also seems to be a problem with the fuel pumps at certain gas stations but not others. Try a couple of different service stations (not the same fuel brand) and see if you have the same shut off problem because some people have found that the pumps at some gas stations do not cause premature shut off when re-fueling their 06 Stangs.

I would contact the nearest Ford dealer service people and see if they will rectify the problem for you FOC even though the vehicle is now out of warranty. In some vehicles the fuel tanks were replaced to fix the problem but not in all apparently.

In the meantime you can try 2 means to resolve the problem that has worked for some (not at the same time).

1. Turn the fuel pump nozzle 45 - 90 degrees when re-fueling and do not run the pump full bore. Slow the fuel flow a little.

2. I would avoid this one and I do not recommend it but it has worked well for some people with your problem. Turn on the car's ignition (not the engine)before you fill the tank . Switch it off immediately you have completed re-fueling.

2000 Lincoln Continental. Won't fill with gas without pump clicking off every 20 cents worth . No matter which pump I fill at. Happens always. No accidents ever with this car. No visible kinks in both...


this car has a closed fuel system,and the air pressure coming back out the filler tube is shutting off the pump,only answer is hold the gun and fill slowly.........do not over fill.

Gas tank backs up when filling, shutting off hose


I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem


The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.
