Gas Pumping Out of the Tank Fill Point
Posted 17 September 2012 - 05:45 AM
It took a while of repeatedly shutting down and letting the gas settle, starting it up only to still have it pumping gas up and out of the fill point.... finally got in and drove home a few miles hoping I wasn't going to blow up.
It stopped and hasn't happened again, but then I'm afraid to fill it up and have it repeat the problem, so I've been only putting 10gals in at a time.

Sounds like you may have a plugged tank vent or carbon canister.

I suspect that you overfilled the tank on a warm day, the fuel expanded, and pushed out under the gas cap. On my 240Z if I overfill (top off) on a hot day the fuel will expand and run out past the gas cap. As long as I don't top off the tank there are no leaks.
