Hi all,

anybody had any problems filling up a 430 (excluding jokes about cost of petrol etc.etc.) filling mine is problematic with regards to the fuel pump cutting out,the fuel pump nozzle needs to be just so (as to it's position in the filler neck) to prevent this cutting out problem, it's as if there's a vent problem causing a back up pressure which stops the pump.

Hi

You say filling up a 430, and i notice your vehicles are 400's, i don't have any experience with the 400 range, but i have a 430 and do not experience problems filling mine up.You are probably aware of this, but underneath the fuel pump nozzle is a small hole, this is the cut off so to speak. In the past on other vehicles i have found that the cut off cuts in, and slows down the filling time, (i have found different pumps tend to work differently than others, why i don't know) but i have found if you turn the nozzle around slightly this seems to cure the problem, also slightly moving it out from the filler neck will work as well. I think at the end of the day filler necks are all differnt shapes, and sizes, and also as i mentioned earlier the pumps seem to work differently.

Hope this helps.

George.

Hi George,

thanks for reply, I have just bought the 430 so have not got round to updating profile.

ok, this car seems particularly problematic filling up with regards to any car I have ever owned, as you say all pumps are different, and moving the nozzle can make a difference in certain circumstances,however,cutting out is very rare in my experience (32yrs and 15 cars later inc 2x LS400'S motor bikes etc.). just chuck the nozzle in any old how and away you go fill up(again no joke intended) car is under warranty (lexus) so need lots of opinions in case a problem exists.

Hello,

I have had the same experience but, as George has said, I find not putting the nozzle all the way in solves the problem. It seems as if this allows more air to flow out as the petrol goes in.

Hi CDX

Will be interesting to see what lexus have to say on the matter as the car is under a lexus warranty, i might mention this to lexus myself, as i have to pay them a visit later today due to the car being booked in because of height sensor failure, and due a service.

Will report back if they say anything.

Regards.

George.
