When filling the fuel tank, the fuel nozzle may click off before the tank is full. Our technicians tell us a revised fuel filler neck is available which may correct this concern.

    Cannot fill up the fuel on this car. It just keeps clicking every $1 fill or so...

    Pump keeps turning off while filling tank. I have found that if I turn the nozzle about 90 degrees to the left, and hold it in place, it will fill. Can't simply put it in and let it fill automatically as it keeps shutting off.

    The gas pump continually shuts off unless I hold the nozzle down.

    When filling up sometimes with gas it shuts off the gas before car is filled

    When it happens it happens through out the filling; it's embarrasing when I filled 3 gal and got 10 more gallons to go and people behind me take notice at costco gas station... This happened to my boss with his BMW 700 series. i think it has to do with how much pressure it is coming from the station and the car..??

    gauge says empty. when I go to fill the pump shuts off before it is full(according to the gauge) spills out and gauge says 1/2 full. Changed tank sender with same results.
