I wonder if ALL vehicles within a model use ALL the same parts - same vendor / manufacturer - for each part!!!!! I've filled up at a number of different stations during my first 17,000 miles and have not noticed a premature shut off. Some pumps are more sensitive than others - but this is true with all the vehicles I've had the pleasure, or displeasure of.
My xB is a mid '05 model (don't know when it was built).

I've notice that my filler pipe is "loose". There's quite a bit of play fron side to side when I insert the gas nozzle. Haven't checked it out yet.

I was told one by a station that the problem with CA gas nozzles is when people "top off". This lets some gas enter the venting system of the nozzle and can cause filling problems for the next guy. He took the nozzle that I was having problems with, pointed it down with the filler spout touching the ground. He then pulled up on the rubber boot and shook the nozzle. A small amount of gas spilled out. Worked fine after that.

So when you top off, your'e giving back gas to the poor gas companies!

I could be wrong, but it seemed to work.

Its really inconvenience for me struggling with nozzle every time I pump gas.
Hey man, my son recently bought a 2013 FR-S having the exact same issues, what was your fix??
