Fueling problems - anyone else?

I have a frustrating problem whenever I fuel the gas tank of my Greyhawk. It takes forever to fuel because the pump nozzle keeps shutting off. This happens no matter what type of nozzle and how far into the fuel pipe I insert it. I am talking here of the normal shut-down of a vapor recycle nozzle when the tank is almost full. On rare occasions this does not happen, but I am unable to attribute it to anything different that I am doing. Weather makes no difference.

I had this same problem when I rented a Cruise America class C in 2007.

It is the angles in the filler hose... creates a backlog of fuel... I have the same on my diesel when I added the 52 gallon inbody tank....

Sorry for the delay. I was under my coach this weekend and remembered your post. I noticed that the filler tube had a rubber segment just past the gas cap. The rubber piece on my coach had slightly twisted, reducing the tube diameter. If yours is doing the same thing, I 'd say there's a good chance that's where your problem is.

My 07 Greyhawk does the same thing. When I finally think it's full I drive away and the gauge says thats it's not totally full.

Just curious... We looked at Greyhawks not long ago. The dealer said it got about 14mpg on the highway. Is that your experience? Thanks

Fueling problems

14 mpg !!! Maybe with a 60 mph tail wind. I have an 07 greyhawk, 31GS, 10 cyl. and I might get 10 mpg if I'm not towing a car.

LOL ... that's what I thought! Salesman had no clue that some of us are members at this forum and can get the skinny on their spiels!

2010 Jayco Melbourne.......Takes ages to fill tank up due to same problem. The only way that works is to pump very slow or it will cut off.
