Problem putting fuel in

Post by Jimbog » Sat Dec 01, 2018 3:09 pm

Hi All,

I have a 93 K reg mk2 GT2 and every time I put fuel in at the petrol station I cannot keep the pump lever on the fuel nozzle from cutting off. I have to stand there and keep squeezing the lever adding fuel bit by bit. I have tried positioning the nozzle in different positions etc but I cannot get fuel to continuously flow into the tank. As far as i can see the filler neck is in good shape. Is there a pressure release valve or something somewhere that may be blocked?

Think that is a sign of a blocked breather

there is a half inch pipe that joins the filler neck aperture to the top of the tank to allow it to breathe, as black gtx says theres a good chance its blocked so the escaping air cannot get out other than back up the filler pipe which will cause it to trigger.


I dont mind project cars but I HATE SANDING!!!

Check the hose number 10, could be block.
