edjunior said:I can verify this, and add my little bit to it. I would fill my new Dodge Charger like this and always smelled gas in the car after a fill-up. I always thought it was just something in the way the Charger was built. Until I read on one of the Charger forums someone else had that problem. The answer was like SpencerPJ said, stop filling at the first click. And I actually tested this on a number of fill-ups. After the first time I stopped at the first click, no fumes in the car. The next fill-up, I clicked it until I could click no more. Fumes in the the car. I did it a couple of more times until I felt that yep, that was what was causing the fumes in the car. It did take me a while, but I finally kicked the habit. I now always stop after the first click. And have not had fumes in the car since. So believe it!
Interesting as I am a big time topper offer... Doubt I'll change my habits--but I'll keep it in mind.
Edjunior--your problem is that it was a dodge....LOL
