RE: Cant fill my gas tank completely
Some cars have better tanks piping, than the other.
In 100 gal motorhome tanks topping it off is usually a hassle. Even 2% grade can make 15 gal air bubble, so figuring out which way to the slope to park while filling up might be critical. Foaming is another story. Even in those huge tanks foaming is bringing filling up last 10 gallons to a drizzle.
Than I used to own 92 300D sedan and I was filling it up at truck distributors at "full throttle" and the nozzle kicked off with diesel 2" below the cap.
It was funny, because the filler pipe was smaller, than the nozzle and I had to hold the nozzle at the wider part where the cap screw to fill it, but with 16 gal capacity and the speeds of the pumps that didn't take long. [8D]
