gas tank won\'t fill!

I have a 73 scout and can only get the gas tank to fill 3/4. I've tried blolwing out all the vent lines and I can hear the air going back into the tank. Any ideas? And yes the guage is accurate.

Re: gas tank won\'t fill!

My buddies 75 had that problem, do you have the gas fume collector on the pumps in your neighbor hood? We do and we had to shove the damn nozzle as far in as possible then push the handle towards the ground while leaning in on it towards the truck, yes it was a big pain in the butt. Fortunatly it had a 33 gallon tank and since it was a scout it rarely got through all 33 gallons without breaking down. Best of luck
