2018 Camery Hybrid - Fuel Blowback When Filling

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had this problem? I did "search" but nothing came up. We've had Toyota's for 30 years or so but have never had an issue like this. The issue does not happen all the time, maybe 50% of the time, but It Should Not Happen At All.

When I go to the station (like I did an hour ago) to fill the car up, the gas nozzle keeps clicking off, like when the tank is full, but it's not full, there's less the 1/4 in the tank. It goes slow fill, click, slow fill, click about 4 - 5 times and then the fuel starts blowing back through the filler tube on the car. I could sometimes drive it around, shaking the car as I drive and hit the gas then brakes in case there's a vapor lock or something, sometimes it works, today, after several tries it didn't. I can't fill the car up unless I want to spend 2 hours there messing with it. When it blows back it dumps fuel all over the side of the car and on the ground when it happens and that's bad all the way 'round.....   Any thoughts on what it may be?

I had the same thing happen to me. No response from Toyota. But my son Googled it and found that when you press the Gas cap unlock from inside the car make sure that you hear two clicks. Because one click opens the outside body cover and the other opens a covers inside the pipe to let gas in. The slow flows  and the flow back is because of the inside cover still being closed.
