This is a very old thread, but I am having the same problem on my 05 F350 V10. Any easy/cheap fixes.

Change the canister or enjoy the grief at the pump.

After putting a couple a thousand miles on it it seems to fill fine now.

For a cheap "fix" ,. on our 2006 work trucks I followed the line to the engine compartment on the passenger side . You will see a green? (IIRC) quick disconnect fitting . when you go to fill up , squeeze both sides together and pull off, now you can fill without constant shutting off. make sure to plug back in after filling or you will be sucking fumes while driving. As a side note my truck , after doing this for a few months no longer requires this, it fills fine now .

Some of these canisters will collect water. You can try taking it off and drying it out. Move the vent tube to a higher location.

The 03 F250 I had would do the same. I found a station with a slight hill on the drivers side (side my fill tube was on) and it solved it.

Slow fill up problem

Hi Guys
I think I have a solution to your slow fill problem at the gas pump. If your rubber fill hose runs horizonal it will start to drop down from the rubber degrading over a period of time, You will need to loosen the clamps at filler neck and tank, Twist it up as far as you can and tighten the clamps. Then go try and fill your tank. I have run into this problem numerous times and has always worked for me, Please let me know if this helps. Take care and Happy Pumping.

I have a 2005 f250 and have the same problem. I find that if I park at a pump that has a slight elevation on the drivers side, the truck fills better. John

Just wanted to give you an update on Slow fueling. I called my local dealer in WA today. I gave them the TSB# 06-19-15 and they gave me their normal run around. First thing is that this TSB # has been updated twice and the new TSB is 08-4-12. You can still use the old TSB 06-19-15 and they could cross referrence. This is not updated on the TSB/RECALL tabe on top of this page. Second thing is that this problem only happens when you drive on dusty road and the canister gets clogged. Just how it is explained on the the TSB. That's fine, the catch now is that the new TSB updates states that your Check Engine Light has to turn on First before they can take steps to find the problem. You No long could use the excuse of having the fuel pump handle kicking off at the gas station as a defence. Even if you go to more then one gas station or use different pumps. This Engine Light update is just another way Ford is playing with us. This issue is happening to some F250 V8/V10 (gas) with more than 36,000 mile. Pass your warranty and it's your problem. Again, they do not mention this Part in any of their Manuals and Schedule Maintenance Guide books. Third thing is that the kit and labor is going to cost you. In WA the Labor - $110.00 Two Parts - 1. fresh air Kit $110.00 2. Canister - $440.00. One word comes too mind "DAM" . A price we have to pay with no warranty. If anymore has more infomation, please let us know. Good Luck

Thanks.
so they wont service the fuel canister until the check engine light comes on....

John, I've read everything I can and checked about everything that might cause it on my 08'. I've tried what you've suggested for quite some time and it does help. Another thing that I do that seems to help, is, turn the nozzle upside down when filling my tank. I can fill up like this at a medium rate of speed without it cutting off and on all the time till it gets full, Dennis.

Ford truck wont fill up with gas....

I bought my 2007 f 250 with the 5.4 gas engine brand new,,,and we had trouble filling it with gas right away..... I tried all the tricks mentioned on this post,,,and several other things I read,,,but none of this worked.... and Im not buying a new $250 evap canister every 30,000 miles... I pulled the hose off the air filter box (its on top of the canister) and blew all the dirt out...then I drilled a couple big holes in the canister.. Wiggled a screw driver in the hole,,and lightly tapped the other end of it till I got most of the charcoal out.... Then I closed the hole up with silicone caulk .... Plugged canister problem solved,,,,



drilled a large hole at the bottom side of the canister...





wiggled a screwdriver in the hole,,and tapped the other end with a hammer,,until I got most of the charcoal out...





closed up the hole with silicone caulk

We have a 05 V10 and V8. Also a 08 V10. The 05 is very hard to fill. I will be doing a canister ream job on it very soon. And will do the other 2 when needed. The 05 has almost 100 K on it. Great truck and trouble free except for gassing up. The local dealer charges over $500 to replace the canister. Total BS.

Ive got a 08 F350 with the 3v 5.4l and have been fighting the same issue... I have googled and looked like I would be replacing the charcoal can and this morning I climbed under to see what I would be up against. well for one I found that my charcoal can is not like the ones I have found online for my truck. they show to be tube like units and mines is like a sqaure box... still havent found one anywhere for sale so I decided to exsperiment. I heard a guy say blow some compressed air and see if theres a blockage in the fresh air inlet tube. So figured what the heck Id give a try and after about 14 times sticking the air nozzle to the opening of the tube and then removing it, it finally stopped spitting out dirt and a couple very small rocks. So stopped on the way into work and tried adding gas... it didnt stop untill the pump reached the amount I had prepayed. went from 2-3 mins a gallon to no problem at all..

Dont know if this will work for everybody but it did the trick for me..
