Gas spilling out of filler neck when fueling

06 Nismo King Cab, gas has started coming out of filler neck when filling, even at moderate filling rate. Have to fill REAL slow, which is a pain. Have used different gas stations, so it's not the pumps at the station. I'm thinking maybe an obstruction in the vent tube...anyone have similar problem?

dont know if this is the same problem but i used to have a similar problem. the pump would shut off automatically after just starting to pump gas. i dont put the gas pump handle in all the way. something about the angle of the handle doesnt seem to be the same as the filler tube.

Of course I can make it... I got a locker.

You could have a plugged breather valve, its off the the side of the fuel tank.

My '09 with 32k miles on it just started doing this. I need to take it in to get it fixed under warranty. That, and that incessant squeak that i can't figure out.

My 2010 does this as well. Not only does the pump shut off, but it pukes fuel out of the filler neck as well. I have to fuel up very slowly, and keep the nozzle pulled out part way to keep it from happening. I bought the truck with 3100 miles on it and it has done it from the start.

From the FSM...

WHILE REFUELING.
-1. CHECK EVAP CANISTER
1. Remove EVAP canister with EVAP canister vent control valve and EVAP control system pressure sensor
attached.

attached.
The weight should be less than 2.0 kg (4.4 lb).
OK or NG
OK >> GO TO 2.
NG >> GO TO 3.

-2. CHECK IF EVAP CANISTER SATURATED WITH WATER
Does water drain from the EVAP canister?
Yes or No
Yes >> GO TO 3.
No >> GO TO 5.

-3. REPLACE EVAP CANISTER
Replace EVAP canister with a new one.
>> GO TO 4.

-4. DETECT MALFUNCTIONING PART
Check the EVAP hose between EVAP canister and vehicle frame for clogging or poor connection.
>> Repair or replace EVAP hose.

-5. CHECK VENT HOSES AND VENT TUBES
Check hoses and tubes between EVAP canister and refueling control valve for clogging, kink, looseness and
improper connection.
OK or NG

1. Make sure that fuel is drained from the tank.
2. Remove fuel filler tube and hose.
3. Check one-way fuel valve for operation as follows.
When a stick is inserted, the valve should open, when removing
stick it should close.
Do not drop any material into the tank.

Based on the number of people I have seen that are having the same issue, this seems to be a problem inherent in the design of the filler neck itself rather that a malfunction of any particular part. I will probably have the dealer take a look at it anyway. Definitely sucks getting gas down the side of your truck...

Maybe it's just a short bed issue?

3.5 years - Almost 54,000 miles - Gas stations all over the East Coast from New Hampshire to Florida and not once have I had this problem.

Check w/ the Dealership.
