Can't Fill My Gas Tank - Please Help!


Recommended Posts

I just took my 2002 Boxster S out for the summer after putting it up since September. It worked fine when I put it up..but now when I try to fill my gas tank it gets about .4 gallons and then spits out.

And I mean literally spits. It bubbles and spits, like there's some kind of pressure pushing it back out. Air pressure it seems. According to my ticker I can drive 0 miles before I run out of gas so I need to figure this out NOW! :( this is very frustrating, please please please help if you have any idea.

I saw on the FAQ about the filler flap problem, but this seems different since I get more than .1 gallons in and because of the air pressure pushing it back out, but maybe I'm wrong.

Many thanks in advance

After you take the cap off, stick your finger into the tube and push the filler flap in. If you don't hear a click, odds are fuse E6 is blown... there's more info on this subject if you do a search. Good luck!

Take a look at this recent thread. Some similar symptoms.

Regards, Maurice.

according to my fuse diagram E6 is telephone..but there's no fuse in that slot. am I reading this wrong somehow, or is E6 really telephone? that seems unhelpful lol

Fuse E6 is not just for the telephone.

The Bentley manual includes the following three items protected by fuse E6:

1. Navigation

2. ORVR

3. Terminal 30 telephone

Note that the Bentley manual only goes up to a 2001 fuse panel, but I imagine the 2002 must be the same or similar, at least for that fuse location.

Regards, Maurice.

Fuse E6 took care of it, you guys are gods among men :) thank you

Glad to be of service - if it blows soon after, odds are the telephone connector is grounding out against something behind the dash. Do a search and you'll find your answer about how to get it out, then cover the connector with electrical tape.

I have a 2004 Boxster and I am having a problem filling my tank. I put .4 gals in and then it spits back out. I checked my E6 fuse and it is fine, but I changed it anyway. My car was recently repaired after a hit and run while parked in a lot which damaged my passenger side. The repair required replacing the fender over the wheel and the gas door flap. Is there a gas sensor near the gas cap area which might have been damaged when it was hit?

Can I put gas in using a gas can or will that spill out too?

I am getting divorced and between jobs so I have very limited funds for the repair.

Thanks,

Mike
