2011 Soul,81k
I try to put gas in the car....it spits it back out.What the hell causes that?
I refuse to pay $108 for them to check it out.I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one to have had that issue.

I've been delighted with this car.I bought it for it's 100k warranty.NOW...they tell me it's only covered under the 5yr 60k warranty.

Disgusted in Seattle...

10 yr 100k warranty is only on the drive-train. Did you just purchase it?

Could be a pinched vent line; fuel being pumped in too fast, slow it down; it could have been overfilled at some point and got into the canister, that's why they say not to fill it after the pump shuts off.

Please fill out your location and drives details so it shows up with each time you post. We also don't know which model you have.

Never encountered the problem but here is the fuel tank set up on a 2012, should be the same as a 2011.

I'll do that...thanks.

I found the problem.Part #8 was the issue.I've been plenty guilty of over filling.

I ordered the part from Kia...meanwhile,I took a 3/8X6" pipe nipple.Went in sorta hard but that good.After putting the clamps back on...I went to fill it up.I was low....took 10.6 gal.Problem solved.

Oh...when I took it off I tried blowing thru it.....definately restricted

Bad Canister Close Valve or Fuel inside the Canister will cause fuel to be push back out while refueling.
