Fueling a REV or any Dodge ProMaster chassis

Some, including myself, had experienced difficulty filling the gas tank with gas. The pump will usually cut off when the tank is only 3/4 full.

One guy says to turn the nozzle upside down which he says helps; I am not sure how he fit the nozzle into the filler tube.

This is what I have learned. I usually get gas at COSTCO which has high speed pumps. The ProMaster can not take on gas fast enough with these pumps. I now turn the nozzle so the business end points to about the 8 O'Clock position and I try to throttle down the pump speed. I was able to get a full tank today and on my last visit.

I bought my REV in New Jersey and they do not have self service and the pumps there seem to be much slower. My salesman says they never had a problem fueling a ProMaster chassis.

So to get a full tank, pump slow and maybe turn the nozzle to the side.

Hope this helps someone.

Bobby

Our Thor had a similar issue, it had something blocking the vent tube, under the coach on top of the fuel filler neck. It was pinched a little and caused an issue when the tank got close to full the air cant escape and shuts off the pump.
