Our rig sometimes does that. It seems to be more likely to do so after being on the road for sometime (6+ hours, summertime). So I always wondered if it was related to the gas in the tank being hot and the vapor pressure being high. The issue usually seems to resolve itself after I can get about 15 gallons or so into the tank, which I figured cooled the fuel down a bit. Seeing as the slow fill issue doesn't happen too often, it makes it a bit more puzzling and difficult to figure out what's going on. (I've EVEN been tempted to blame this dang "ethanol" gas they force us to use as being the culprit, though I doubt that it has anything to do with it. Though....I don't remember ever having this issue back in the early days we had the motorhome, before 10% ethanol was required.)

That said, I HAVE found at times, as others above have pointed out, that rotating the fill handle can often solve the problem and filling resumes as normal. I don't know if this is because it allows better venting out the fill pipe, or if the gas "sloshes" differently down the fill pipe, but it seems to work. I keep telling myself that "one of these days" I'm going to see if I can figure it out. I have looked at the filler area and don't see anything obviously wrong. But....one of these days....LOL

DW Ford Edge does that at a certain local gas station. I concluded it's pumping it too fast for the system to stay up with. Turning it to 4 o'clock does help. I experience this at only one gas station and it's consistent.

Check the RUBBER hose from your filler port to the steel fuel tank for kinks or interior deterioration. They do go bad and especially after 20 years.


had the same problem on my national dolphin, as mentioned mine had a little short rubber hose that had gotten a sag in it, replaced it, problem solved. if you are not careful you will get a face full of gas when you take it off. a friend told me that.LOL
