      Adding fuel 2017 XC60

      We have a month old 2017 XC60. I have had a problem both times I filled up the car with gas. The first time, the pump kicked off about about 7/8 full. Second time, I did it manually and pumped in the gas slowly but it still seems to cut off without being full. The car in both cases were at a slight (very slight) angle. Does it have to perfectly level to be allow a complete fillup?

      So far (3500 mi) no problems filling our 2017. We have used about 6 different stations.

      My 2016 XC70 with the T5-5 cylinder engine went into limp mode one time. It happened shortly after topping it up manually. It has not happened since then (I now stop at either the first pump kick off, or very shortly after that). I have some suspicion that the engine limp incident it may have been an issue with the gasoline vapor emission control system being overly sensitive to way too much gasoline in the tank. I wonder if the problems that you are having may be related to issues with the same system, with either something clogged, or a sensor being out of adjustment.

      Try another pump like hinted at above, perhaps one of different design at another gas station, and avoid topping it off much further after the pump kicks off, and see if you still have difficulty filing the tank to normal (non-overfill) full.

      When does the switch from winter to summer gas occur in your area?

      Sorry to be late in responding but the answer is different pumps and stations.

      I always let it stop when it kicks off. Will try different station next time and will do it by hand again. Just seems that the first eight of a tank goes quickly to the rest making me feel that I am not filling the tank.

      I read this somewhere for the same issue I had with my S80 and it seems to help.

      When you are filling up, hold the pump handle at the 7 o'clock position.
