Had the parts changed out on my 99 but it still seems that the Kat will not fill up.

Does anyone else still think that they are not getting a full tank of gas?

Only takes 9 gallons of gas with the light on.

Waaaazzzuupp Buddy? I still have the same problem if I use a gas hose that has all that emissions crap on it. I know Cal. has to have it on all of them, but here in Big D, some have them and some don't. If I use a nozzle that has nothing other than just the rear flap, it will fill all the way. But if the nozzle has any form of a rubber sleeve, it just won't allow it to fill all the way.. @ 8-9 gallons is all it will take. I hope this helps!

Try backing out nozzle alittle, and hold at 4 o'clock position. My Dakota had same problem, but doing the above solved the problem. Worth a try.

Gary, I have the same problem with my 2000. I have checked the filler hose and everything seems ok.

Gary, after I had the fix I have had no trouble filling the tank. I have found that keeping the nozzle backed off a little and holding the handle in the 4 o'clock position still allows the tank to fill faster and full.

Gary,

I had the filler neck changed on mine. It does fill better. I always fill on slow and hold as the others have indicated.

One I do not want to scratch my paint. I feel as long as I'm holding it why not find the best position, and it seems to be about 4 o'clock.

I also find different stations seem to be better than others. Find the one that works best and try and use it as much as possible.

Had a 99 and tried all the FIXES....seemed the only cure was using certain pumps at certain stations....never figured it out...the 2000 does it some, just not as bad...aggravating part was, you learn which pumps to use in town, but on a long trip it is a gamble when stoping for gas whether it will pump quickly or a nickle at a time ....

This might me a stupid question, but what is the full capacity of the fuel tank? I have always fill up with 8-9 gallons of gas no matter what I do.

The gas station nozzle has a lot to do with it. I have never had any problem with mine until I started stoping at other gas stations. I usually fill at the same one with no problem. Others give me FITTS!!! Good luck finding a good one.

Hey now, I think the gage is off. I had the neck changed in my car and I have not had anymore problems filling. I have never been able to put more than 10 gal. in, so if its a 12 gal. tank, the gage must be wrong????

Have the same problem on my 99. The slow fill process is there but also only getting 9 gallons in with the warning light on, you have to keep in mind that there is a 2 or 3 gallon reserve that is in that 12 gallon total. I've had it on the "E" and it only took about 9.8 gallons, there was still the reserve.

I'll have to try that 4 o'clock position thing for the slowness..

Try holding the rubber nosel back by hand (assuming the pump has one) and fill semi slowly. Those rubber bits cause vapor lock.
