I have a 2011 Melbourne, and feeding her fuel is a slow task. I appreciate the news about the twist and will check that out.

2008 Melbourne. Have the same problem filling the tank. Seems to do better with the vapor hoses. Rarely do I get the tank full according to the fuel gauge. In response to Healthi's question, about 9 mpg, not pulling a toad. Most trips have been on slightly hilly terrain.

Same will our 2011. Tried everything. Now just wait it out.
Seem to be the same problem across the board.

My 2011 Greyhawk 31SS takes gas as fast as the pump can go... $$$$$$. As for fuel "economy" i average 8mph (the midwest is not flat) and can squeeze 10 on flat land.

Our Greyhawk gets about 7. We just traded our 5,000 lb toad for a Ford Focus and hope that will help some. Wish we could get even 8.

I fuel up the greyhawk with no problem. Any problems with slow filling has to be a manufactures defect and should be looked at by the dealer.
Gas mileage averages between 8.5 and 9 depending on the mountains we have to climb.
I trained myself on getting better milage by installing Scanguage that constantly gives me the mph, that way my lead foot has gotten to be a light foot.

So Hawk -do you use straight gas or ethanol? Here in "hawkeye" country we get ethanol for about $.10 cheaper - just curious if the "straight" stuff makes a difference. I know on my 5.4 F150 there is a big difference between E-85 and the 10% mix.
