My problem with the fuel tank happened at about 65000 miles. It would not fill correctly and always I had to pump the fuel real slow. The solution was a replacement fuel tank. The explanation is that the fuel tank design is a two half tanks which fills up equally. The mechanism that distributes the fuel while it is pumped into the tank malfunction. The only fix is replacement of the fuel tank. I hope this helps. I am now at 86000 trouble free miles.
