The gas hose clicks off many times during refueling. How is this fixed?

Asked by Feb 10, 2017 at 03:52 PM about the 2013 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When filling up the gas tank, the handle on the hose will click off before the
tank is full.   By taking the gas handle on the hose out and reinserting it, more
gas can be put in the tank.  The problem seems worse in warmer weather.

This is probably caused by a bad fuel tank vent. Have your EVAP system checked out.

Try to put your nozzle in deeper. They like that. Then try not putting your nozzle in too deep..........

Just pointing out that some like it deep and some not. My 2014 Ram likes the nozzle all the way in the tank, but when I had my 2006 Corvette it would not take fuel with a deeply inserted nozzle. ;)

2013 OB? Hmmm...I know that the vent valve on '08+ Imps had this pricey problem, but not later OB/Legs. May involve removing tank to access...but maybe not.
