I just fueled up and left my truck idling ( I know shouldn't do that but its winter ) and went to drive away and , spit , sputter, cough , guess musta made air bubbles it cleared in 2 blocks. Won't do that agian.
Just wanted to share for a heads up.

I almost always fuel while idling and have not had a problem. I only notice fuel guage is a little slow coming up(will not read full for a few miles).

Why would filling up while the truck is idleing make it do that. Most of the time i fill up while my truck is running and i have never had that problem.

I always fuel running.. Never had any issues. Not sure what to tell you on that one.. Might have just made a few air bubbles, like you said, seep into the line and they passed through.. Let us know if it happens again...

:exactly: .........always leave running too. Takes a while for gauge to come up also. Never sputters though? Quit using that damn farm fuel. :p:

I have always wanted to leave My truck running while fueling but the only thing that stops me is I am scared it will get stolen while I am inside paying for the fuel. Heh~Heh

I always keep a spare remote and key for that reason and lock it. But if they do want it bad enough the can always break out the window. Oh well, that'd give me a good reason to buy a new one. :eek::

Here in New Jersey it is the law that your vehicle must be shut off while fueling up. Signs are near ever pump. Most places don't bother you if your vehicle is running, but I have one guy that alway's ask I turn off my truck. With gas I can see the potential problem, but with diesel I don't.

Same here, but no one has ever said anything.....

I use a split key ring, pop the remote off, lock and head inside. Yea, I am still vulnerable to smash and dash, but.....

Actually I am more concerned about my remote dying on me after that last lock and being stuck staring at my truck going :think:

Hey NJ I live in the communist state too all the diesel pumps around me are separated from the gas pumps and are under different regs as diesel has to be atomized like home heating fuel to combust and the only thing to spark a flame is static hense the tanks are far from reg gas. you must be in the northern part of NJ where diesel is hard to find. Southern NJ is easy to find as most farms are there. Only law to shut off all vehicals at stores or malls in NJ. Fumes!!
