 Whenever i try to fill my gas tank, the fuel backs up after filling 2-3 gallons and spills out. this is the 2nd summer season i am having this problem. last summer my mechanic said the tank appeared fine. i have to fill the tank very slowly and i often still experience this backsplash of fuel. this happens 70% of the time.*ak
