    I think there is a check valve at the tank inside the big rubber fill hose, it may be the problem. Some have this but i am not sure about this vehicle! That might be something to check into though.

    You are welcome, had this problem with a mustang and a new check valve fixed that one! I dont know what might happen if it was just left out of the tank.
