Acura issued a recall on a number of 2005 vehicles because the gas tanks were improperly manufactured and could leak in the event of a crash. It is unclear if all the fuel fill issues are related to the recall or not. For more information on this recall please click here»

    Same problem as several others; can't fill tank past half full. Gas gushes out on car, shoes, cloths, etc.

    Same as the others here. Try to fill the tank and you can hear the gas fill up the filler neck and with less than a gallon in, it clicks off the auto fill lock on the pump and gas comes pouring out all over the paint and tires (and your clothes and shoes if you're standing too close >8-| )

    Not sure why the dealers can't figure it out without having to replace a 7 year old gas tank. Something wasn't designed right...

    Constant problems fueling the vehicle. Sensors and flap replaced.
    Not fixed. Acura says to replace the tank. I was never notified of a recall.

    Have 2004 MDX with gas fill problem. Gas pump automatically shuts off, and fuel spills. It is intermittent. Is is not related to the service station nozzle/pump. Dealer says replace filler neck, but this is "trial and error" approach. Dealer says, If that doesn't work, replace fuel tank itself. Other people apparently are having this problem, but no one seems to have most likely cause of problem and solution.

    Trouble getting gas in tank without pump handle clicking off. This problem is intermittent but extremely annoying. Replaced sensor on gas tank but problem is still happening!

    The gas pump would shut off automatically after half a gallon to a gallon of gas had been pumped. Sometimes the pump doesn't shut off and it overfills the tank, it will put as much as 22 gallons in. (pushing the gas into other tubing etc.)

    Gas tank clicks off after each gallon (approx.) put in.

    at less than half tank, when filling, gas either won't fill more than 1/2 gallon at a time or gas gushes out. Has happened about 6 times in past 6 months.
