I have a 1998 fleetwood southwind storm. With the new gasoline fuel nasals in California I am not able to fill the tank. The nasal stops after only allowing a few ounces in the tank. I had a mechanic check it out and he said there was a kink in the line and did his best to straighten it out. I still have the same problem. I never had this problem prior to the gas stations changing the size of the nasals. Any ideas?

The mechanic inspected the fuel system, removed the breather vent hose from the fill tank to see if there was fuel in the line. It was dry. Measured the hose at the back of the coach to the elbow to where it goes into the tank. There is only 2" difference of height. The mechanic recommened that I make sure the rear of the coach is higher than the front when filling.
Hi, my name isXXXXX these the new nozzles with the vacuum to suck the fumes out of the tank as you are filling? I have had this problem before. There really is not legal solution, if you tank vented someplace other then in the filler neck it would not do this, and I am not telling you to vent your tank to the outside. I have a friend that puts the nozzle in and pulls the boot back with his had so the tank will still vent when filling. I'm afraid there is not much you can do if you cannot find a station without the new nozzles. It is one of those legal things.
Try putting the nozzle in and then pulling the boot back so it can vent better.
