Gas tank "leaks" under truck and won't fill
my first post here!
I recently bought a 1994 ranger, and I've had a lot of problems with it already, so your help is greatly appreciated.
I was filling up the tank yesterday, and the pump handles at this particular station aren't the best and sometimes flip off if you squeeze too hard, so I thought it was doing that, but apparently my tank was full and I see gas coming out from under the truck.
I don't suppose there is some kind of valve to let gas out so that it doesn't flow over your hand? Or does it necessarily mean I have a leak or crack or something?
The other reason I thought it couldn't be full was that I had put in $40 prior, which brought the tank to halfway to my surprise, and then the tank was "leaking" about $20 in, which leads me to believe a gauge sensor is wrong...
the meter said I was at 3/4 when I got back in.
