    Gas pump technique?

    Is it just me or does anyone else have problems filling their trucks at the pump? I have to hold the pump above the filler and ever so gently pull the trigger to have a slow stream of fuel come out. It took me ten minutes to pour 11 gallons today. Is there a technique Iím missing out on?

    The filler bung on my plastic replacement tank has 3/8" thick walls... I had to use a connecting filler tube
    from a Ford van to get the gas to fill quickly... The Ford tube necks down to 1" with an inner hose that
    goes thru the bung into the tank....With that, the tank fills just like it should.....

    Any restriction in the filler tube will cause the nozzle to click off........
