Anyone Else Pissing Diesel While Re-Fueling

I am curious to know if anyone else other than my friend and I are having problems at the end of re-fueling?

Only filled it up three time so far using "auto" and not "otr" nozzles and each time about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fuel pissed out all over the truck and ground. The last time I even had the pump set on the lowest click and it still did it.

I cannot imagine the EPA would be too pleased about this taking place every time a 2011 6.7 re-fueled. It seems the filler neck is fairly flat and when the tank tops off it has nowhere to go but out.

Yeah mine does it occasionally. You can't top it off unless you really baby it.




fx4 and the round PowerStroke emblems are now gone!!

Wow... I figured it would be a filler tube issue and not a tank issue. But please let me know how he makes out and if it fixes the problem.

colfaxent, can try and find out from your friend why they decided to change out the tank. I am wondering what they changed if anything on the internals of the tank and/or plumbing.

Thanks!!

I have quite a few fill ups now but haven't had any spillage. Definitely curious if it is an issue with design.

Interesting... are you guys that are not having this problem allowing the pump to auto shut off or are you turning it off when you hear the fuel starting to gurgle?

Refilled mine last night and was curious if I could duplicate what others on here were having problems with. I put the latch down and let it run until it clicked off, no problems. I held the handle wide open to try and top it off again and it had a little spillage then. Less than 1/2 cup probably

Normally when I top it off I hold the handle about halfway down with no problems. So I guess I did see how it happens but not unlike I have had with other trucks.

Hope that helps.
