Re: Problem filling gas tank
Hey hipshot, it was me that had the filling issue like you. I removed the filter and just stuck a small rag in the cylinder to block anything big from getting in but not enough to block the air from getting out. I've been driving it that way since last Saturday with no issues at all. I called the dealer and they could not tell me what it was called. Their system called it a "gas tank hose" because you can only buy the entire hose from the filter all the way to the front of the tank. and it's $77.00. I assume the only thing that filter does is reduce the amount of gas fumes maybe. It's just a small paper filter. I'm not sure what else it does. ControlFreak suggested i read about the purge valve and charcoal canister but I think(from what I read) those are either under the hood or on top of the gas tank. When it warms up I am probably gonna clean the filter with a toothbrush and put it back and see what happens. or maybe I'll just keep the rag in it. It seems to be working fine. Maybe my car will catch on fire and burn to the ground. That'd be sweet. lol.....
