does any one else have problems filling up there evos (preferbly a 6 )with fuel
When im filling up it takes me ages i have tryed moving the nossle around and even tryed different stations but unless you have the trigger dispensing the minimum it can ,it just cuts out
also when i remove the filler cap u can hear the air escaping does the tank have a breather in it at all? if so where is it located as i think mine needs attention.

it also took me around ten mins to put around about £3 of sul tonight as i just caught the small plastic filling neck restricter and knoked it down the pipe then had to go back to the mitsi garage (as car had been in for a service so left no fuel in it )and ask for a coat hanger to fish the restricter out so i could get some more petrol to make it the 40 miles back home :0
ps do u lot keep the resrtictors in the filling neck or not as i am going to leave mine out to save future problems...

Without the restrictor you can still have problems sometimes, but it is a lot better without.

Certain cars for some reason have this problem.On my old E30 M3 it said in the handbook that if the tank is run to a very low level then it will be impossible to fill to the top.I have never had any problems with my E6.The tank is so small it only takes a few quid to fill.
All cars let air out when you undo the cap espcially if the tank is low on fuel.

If you put the nozzle in at an angle, so that the handle points to 7 or 8 o'clock, the petrol seems to go in fine.

i found my restrictor thingy had fallen down to low, blocking the flow of fuel too much... it was refitted at what I assume to be the correct level and I could then fill up flat-out (so to speak) - then the restrictor fell down AGAIN (is it my rough petrol-filler-upper or just a crap fitting????) - so it was refitted - this time alsmost so high you couldn't screw the filler cap on properly, and again I can fill up to my hearts content! Weird stuff...... maybe they have slower flowing fuel pumps in Japan...although i'd live with that for 100 octane fuel!
