i often wonder what the issue is,,,,,, i have the same problem with my 97 some stations i can pump faster than others but the bad ones the gas will spit out towards me if its pumped to fast ,,,,, i had to replace the fuel level sensor and thought where the rubber filler hose goes over the frame rail was restricted if i remember correctly the hose flattens out somewhat over the frame it is very annoying but living with it

it's that flat spot that was previously discussed, and is most likely causing your problem... the reason some gas stations will shut off, and some won't is how the nozzle is set, there is a tolerance of pressure in the tip that will shut it off, if the tolerance is high, it won't shut off as easily, the other difference between pumps is how dirty the in pump fuel filter is (looks like an oil filter) when it gets dirty, there is no bypass on it, and the fuel just moves slower, this may be a small enough amount that you don't notice it pumping slower, but it allows the fuel to drain out of the neck, rather than backing up

you know what you could do... put a hose clamp around the flat section, the tension of the hose clamp may just keep it circular... if the problem comes back

Had same problem on f-250

I recently had the same problem on a f-250 at the company I work for, they have their own maintenance department that worked on it. Supposedly the carbon canister that is supposed to capture any gas vapor escaping the tank gets clogged easily, they said they have it allot on their trucks that are used on dirt roads. Anyway I think my ranger has on too, just in front of the spare tire between it and the bed. When you fill the tank it forces air out of this vent and threw the canister and if itís clogged it will kick off the pump. You may try disconnecting the tube where it goes into this canister and see if that helps, but donít just leave it unhooked permanently or dirt will get in your tank.

Don't mean to take over a thread but I got a filler neck for my 95 ranger and it seems to be too short even though it was the same length as the old one. My question is can I just splice a piece from the old one in and not worry about the little hose embedded inside it or do I meed that line as well???

re: filler neck

The filler neck on these trucks are coaxial, meaning there is a hose inside a hose. If the larger hose is kinked in any way, it will impede the flow of vapor back to the station pump hose, triggering a higher pressure in the system, causeing the pump to shut off. The smaller hose is where the gas flows into the tank. Without either one of these in proper working order problems refilling the tank will persist.

I have a 04 4.0L 4x4. Every since I got the truck it has had a slight issue with pumping gas. Basically if I pump the gas from the nozzle as fast as it will pump, the nozzle will shut off as if the gas tank is full. It wasn't terrible, but it was annoying, I would have to pump slowly and it would take longer to fill up but it was bearable. I recently had some repair work done at 2 shops back to back for unrelated issues. After getting the truck back the problem was magically gone. I could pump full blast every time anywhere I got gas. Well now today the problem is back, and with a vengeance, it now takes FOREVER to fill my tank. I literally have to squeeze the nozzle just enough to get it going but not trip the cutoff. If I twist the nozzle to the side while filling the effect is not as terrible, but still have to pump very slow.

Does anyone have any ideas what could possibly be causing this?

Thanks in advance for anyone willing to offer any advice.
hey i have a mazda b3000 2001 and i changer my canister its a comon problem hope this helps

Whoa I forgot about this thread. I still have the issue sometimes. Just depends on where I go and which pump I use. I have found one usually reliable way to make it work when I am at a problematic pump is to hold the nozzle at a different angle. Say to the side or even almost upside down. Just not straight up and down like normal.
