This might call for another topic. "Can fuel/Can't fuel" :lol:

Or Can't fuel won't fuel? Like can't cook won't cook...? I'll get my coat...

I've refuelled four times now and it's gone fine each time. The one time I spilt petrol was because there was still some in the nozzle when I picked it up and it went all over me! blech!

I have had a nightmare refuelling my Fiesta 1.6tdci s diesel. all the same problems the other guys (who have had problems) have had, infact according to the RAC it is a "known" problem...I had to call them out tonight as i could not get a drop in this time, where as normally i can manage to get some in after moving the filler nozzle around at many different angles. What they suggested i did was just push the nozzle in all the way,then let go of the handle so it sat in the filler "el natural" then slowly squeeze the trigger... it filled up a treat ..tho i did get some fuel coming out the overflow pipe as normal... For you that have not had the problem "yet" i hope you dont get it... those who have had it have probably been looking for a new car like i have. good luck

Next time you fill up look at the nozzle, you'll notice some notches on it. You need to insert the nozzle until the first notch is just past the edge of the filler and hook it over. Then 'drop' the nozzle to adjust the angle and squeeze trigger to fill.
Once I learned this method I never had an issue again.
