  • While refueling only 1 gas station fits my car, refueling stops with leakage warning

    Hi, I have a 2016 Honda Civic NGV, while refueling, one gas station fits my car and fuels properly, all others refueling the refueling stops within 1 gallon with leakage warning. Has anyone phased this issue and how did you solve it. I took it to the dealership and they said there is nothing wrong with my gas cap. Has anyone faced this issue and how did you solve it?

    A 2016 Civic NGV ? Is it a 2006 maybe ? I'm assuming a 2006.Some station fuel nozzles are less tolerant of worn /damaged fuel receptacle on the vehicle. How many miles on the car ? High mile vehicles have a lot of fill cycles and can get damaged over time and use.

      Yes, it is common for older natural gas vehicles to experience wear on the fill receptacle, especially if the dispenser connection is a "sleeve" type as opposed to the type which has the 180 degree handle turn, or the new ones which look like typical gasoline dispenser pistol-grip. When this wear happens the receptacle "tulips" outward to a larger diameter and makes for a difficult fit with non-sleeve dispenser hose connectors.

      The remedy is to replace the fill connector - its a quick screw off-on procedure and the part is $____? (probably under $200)

        ok this gave me a idea how about we put a counter in the fill connector and it will close permanently on the 21900th cycle instead of 20 year tank life this way cars that are used for 3 shifts 7 days a week would die at about the same time as they do now but someone like my mom would use a tank a week the tank would last 421 years! my math 3 fills a day 365 days a year=1095 fills a year x 20 year life of tank= 21900 fills now for mom 1 fill a week x 52 weeks a year 21900 divided by 52 = 421 years. I don't think most people will be worried about their tank life in 421 years. now the tank mfg will not like this. but on the other hand myself I don't think many people retank old cars as most cars are done before 20 years
