    Yeah, I know about good luck. I worked in NYC for 30 years and was only robbed once.

    Very bad idea to smoke while fueling too, but you see it all too often. You also see people returning to the comfort of their cars while fueling and then risking static ignition of gas vapors when their clothes cause a spark as they exit the car.

    It's back...

    Last 3 fill-ups, I have fuel burping out after the handle pops. It's not from topping off, either, as it happens right away when the handle pops. I've tried pumping slowly and it doesn't make any difference. Like I stated in my original post, it's as if the air has to burp itself out and it's pushing fuel back up and out.

    The worst part about it is the rancid smell of fuel that lingers afterward. If I fuel up on the way home, my garage smells terribly well into the next day.

    The car otherwise continues to deliver as promised. 12,000 happy miles.

    Is that considered "good" in NYC? Yikes!

    I only have trouble every time I fill up. No matter what you do it won't fill up on even the first notch on the autofill. You have to hold it up or pull back the rubber. This is at every station I have gone to since I bought the car.

    I know this is an old thread but I wanted to add that I have this same issue.
    I took car to the dealer and they Diag that the charcoal canister and the valve associate with the charcoal canister needed (and were replaced).
    ~$600 later and still having the issue. :P
    Now it's time to revisit the dealer for answers.

    I have had 4 Equus cars and none have had this issue. I always put pump on auto fill and at fastest rate. Is you car parked on level ground. That is only thing I can think of.
