    Refueling

    So i'm having a continual issue on my 2018 3.5 EB F150. Anytime my tank runs low and i attempt to refuel, it will not let me fill past 13 gallons. Any suggestions? I've tried 6 different gas stations, tried waiting and letting the fuel settle, tried using the funnel, tried pulling out the wand, done all I can!!! Anyone experience this or have heard of it?

    Like the pump pops and shuts off automatically. Very weird.

    Can you get more into it with a gas can after you get 13 gallons into it? I wonder if you have only a 25 gallon tank?

    I wonder if these have a bladder inside he tank and maybe yours has a leak which let gas outside of the bladder but still is contained within the factory installed tank?

    Your fuel guage is clearly misreading your fuel level.

    What does the fuel gauge have to do with it if it's the gas pump that's shutting off? Sounds like he's got an obstruction to me.

    His point is that he thinks when the fuel gauge reads empty it's not actually empty and there is plenty of fuel left in the tank.
