Agreed. This is one of those haven't-been-driving-long "problems."

It's one of those things you get freaked out by "all of a sudden" in your teens or 20s, like when you first notice that mole on your back and you're certain you never had it before and it's gotta be a carcinoma, until mom finally brings out the photo of you on the beach from five years ago.

I, too, haven't ever had this happen to me before... foreign or domestic vehicle (i've been driving for 12 years). It hasn't been a *huge* problem for me though -- i've been filling up at the exact same pump every time EXCEPT this last time.

This last time, the pump clicked, and it hadn't filled all that i thought it should have... so i clicked it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more - another gallon at least. When i got in and drove away, i was STILL not completely full.

more annoying than anything... i guess i'll just have to get used to it....

--TOO MUCH TOO READ--

But here's my post...

I got my xA and I didn't have any problems with this, about two months later it started and lasted for another month or two.

After awhile I either set the auto pump about half way or left the nozzle half in half out. It started to help, eventually it just started pumping at full force, nozzle fully in.

Don't know what to tell you guys. Have to figure size of tank, width of fuel tube, etc etc... Small car, small tank, probably happens with most vehicles of this size.

There is now a TSB to take care of this problem. I believe it replaces the gas tank and the filler neck. Just came out Dec.1st, go to your local Toyota/Scion dealer. Parts will have to be ordered.

Then they must be slow on getting their info. It came out Dec 1st and it came from Toyota's Dealer Daily TIS site.

Ok....so whats the TSB number? Not trying to be a pain in the ___ but people on this site are notorious for claiming left and right everyone and their mother told them the tC has a new TSB out for anything and everything. It's virtually worthless to roll into a dealership without a TSB number because half the time they don't know about them.

Well I've tried different solutions and nothing seems to work everytime. I even get different results at the same station. Oh well... if they issued a TSB for the tC I would take it up to the dealer and have them check it out. Without that, I doubt I'd get very far.

I just got the lava back from having this done. It took less than three hours and they didn't fill up the tank, only gave me back what I had in the old tank. Which was good, cause I was able to test filling it up.

So, get this.. I put the nozzel ALL the way in and pulled the handle ALL the way back and it didn't tiurn off until the tank was FULL!

I'm respectable at the station again!!! I'm off to try and find the thread I was looking for on this

ok, so if my vin starts JTKJT324x501..... does that mean my has that recall?

I dont know what "#" it means. does it mean if there is number in between or space or actually number sign?

Sorry i have NO clue about vin numbers! I have that problem too .... pump shots off before tank is filled up.

also, as a side note ... what numbers in my VIN represents when my car was made????
Thanks

I think that # means ANY number in that position qualifies. So, yeah, looks like yours would be in there. The service guy asked my vin then called me back to tell me I qualified. They don't trust as, as they shouldn't ;-)
