Trouble at the gas station

So when I fuel up I get a ton of gurgling, and the pump nozzle keeps automatically shutting off.

Clogged tank breather right?

This is my 1st PSD and I've had it about 4 months now.
Anyone know off hand where the breather is?

I'm having trouble finding a book for it too, all the ones I find are for gas models. Is my 97 an odd ball yr?

The 94-97 PSD trucks can not have the pump wide open as it will foam the fuel. Put it on a low setting and just take your time.

Wow, fast responders here!

Awesome response time, ty ty.

I guess a little more info would help.
I'm also running WVO and I get the same gurgling. My back tank does fine. The front tank does it with WVO, or diesel no mater how slow I go.

I'm thinking about creating my own "filler neck mod" can I trade mark that? And upgrading to a 3" ID neck or something

the tank vent is a problem with the OBS trucks. You can replace the roll over valve with 90 deg. fitting, and then plumb a hose up to the filler neck to allow the air to vent into the top of the filler neck. You also have to remove the filler neck from the truck and remove the inner hose(it;s a hose inside of hose for the factory vent). Sorry no trademark on the filler neck mod. it been done over and over again.

I noticed the foaming when I filled up this weekend. I will try the slower setting and let you guys know how it works.
