Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

Just took over the lease on a 2010 Lexus is250. Went to fill up with gas and it seemed full. In order to 'fill' with gas I had to stop and start and it took 15 min for 4 gallons. IF there is a blockage or an air pocket how do we fix it????

Answers :

Check the filling tube (or hose) going to fuel tank for damage. Could be the "ball" just inside the tank where the filling tube is attached. Its there to prevent fuel from draining out of the tank in the event of a roll-over.
Tap on the tank in the area around the filling tube with a rubber mallet. This should "unstick" the ball. They do sometimes get stuck and wont let fuel into the tank.
