    well last nite i went to the gas station and my buddy let me use his debit card to fill up my tank cuz he owed me..so i guess i had more fuel than i thought.. so it was at $25 bucks and the pumped stopped, so i looked in the tank and pumped some more and kept going and then theres a little hold on the left inside of were the nozzel goes in and some bubbles/some gas i think came out of that...i didnt know what it was so i stoped pumping the gas.. it took $27.77, i think its pretty full, cuz my gauge is off some but what is that little hole on the side? is it like an overflow?

    That's the vent for the tank. It's just a big loop. It's normal for fuel to come out of the vent when getting near full.

    And I hope you were pumping diesel fuel, not gas! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Diesel foams really bad, so it's normal to have the pump shut off several times before you get full.
