Re: Fuel splash when filling up

Just push the pump nozzle right in and stop at the first click.

At the first click is when it overflows. It then continues to bounce off the other side of the tank and overflow again and again. I wondering if the vent lines a blocked.

Re: Fuel splash when filling up

I had a prob like this with my xe wagon but prob worse. Even when putting ten bucks in it would splash out everywhere bfore i was finished. EVeryone said pay around with the angle u put the nozzle in but nothing seemed to work but going real SLOW. Very annoying.

Seems to be a common problem. I've always owned wagons - XY, XC, XD, XF and they have all done it! The ED wagon I've now got is the first one not to. Guess it's the angle of the filler or something.....

Re: Fuel splash when filling up

My EB is terribly slow to fill - 5 mins to fill a tank. I havent looked at the breather hose yet. Id imagine thats the problem
