I hate filling up!

I have a 97 f350 and when I go fill up I have to baby the damn pump. If I let it pump to fast it clogs up and diesel spurts out. very frustrating, especially when your in a hurry. Does anyone else have this problem? What can I do to fix this?

All OBS trucks have the same problem I changed the vents(larger diameter) on mine when I put in new tanks helped some but still wont take fuel at full force.

Yeah I read an article on tank vent mod, results arent that great though. I guess we just have to live with it.

Fill up in the evening and take your time. I usually don't let it get to much lower than about half but it has been different lately that I have a lot less money.

It must just be mine. But, it can suck the hose dry. It always spits back a little at the end though.

i found a pump here that does well, but only one or two pump, the rest are a pita. recently, the tank only gets 3/4 full. so im unsure if i have a foaming problem or a broken guage...
