Overfilling Tank

I filled up today and i was waiting for the pump to click and shutoff but once again it overfilled on me...this is the 4th time this has happened and 3 out of the 4 have been different stations...Anybody else have this problem...Your thoughts will be greatly appreciated...I had to run B20 this tank...We'll see how it goes...

Next time listen to the sound its making and you can tell when it starts to get close by the sound. Or do it by hand instead of using the lever holder.

has happened to me as well, but only at this specific pump. think it has something to do with the pump equipment itself. always clicks at chevron, 7-11, etc. but whenever i fill up at C&R it overfills. that station is account holders only. think that has something to do with it bc it never happens at the public stations.

i have been told that if you have your fill neck shortned during a Harpoon mod this happens more than you care for, but most likely yours is not this way..since mine has been harpooned, it is so much faster to fill the truck up and everytime there is diesel at the fill neck rim...no more space in the tank for me!

im still alive and kickin...find me on FB..."StrokerX1"
SOLD my truck, another Diesel within 2011

NOTE: if your on OK and need some PSD work done, i know a dealer tech who does the work....PM me!
