ed fuel filling prob

Is it just my car or is there a fault with the ed's (futura) preventing it from being filled with petrol quickly. It takes about 10minutes just to fill cos it clicks off all the time. i have to be carefull on how hard i press. i have tried moving the pump around at different angles and still does it.
THanks

Re: ed fuel filling prob

Are you using the same pump at the same service station when you fill up?

I've experienced the same thing with my ED on occasion but I would put it down to the pump's auto off system not operating correctly.

Re: ed fuel filling prob

also, do you run your car real lowon fuel? sometimes with mine when i get needle bending below the E, it takes ages cause it keeps clicking like you said. But if its on 1/4 or so, it fills easy.

Cheers
