Gas Fill Up Problem
I didn't think this fit under the tank capacity thread, so I created a new one for this issue. My wife and I bought a 2008 Prius back in March and have recently encountered a problem while filling up with gas. Even when the tank is near empty, the gas pump will click right away as if the tank is full. We have tried a couple different gas stations with the same results, and the fuel gauge is usually down to 1 or 2 dots. The only way to get the car filled up is to keep pressing the pump down, letting it click and stop, then pressing it down again, but it takes a very long time to fill up this way. I can also press ever so gently on the pump and the gas flows slowly but wont stop automatically.
Has anyone else had this issue with a 2008 or earlier Prius? We are thinking of just taking it back to Toyota to have them look at it because it must be an issue with the car telling the pump that the tank is full when it is not.
Any thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated.
