    Hey All
    I just bought my 73 Blazer and I went to put gas in it. The stations pump keeps shutting off because the neck was made for a regular nozzle. I tried two stations and same thing happens unless I keep the gas flow really slow. Is there a solution to this?
    Thanks

    I have the same problem. I just assumed it was me being a retard.

    I don't have that problem with my '73. Check out your filler hose for obstructions or holes. Also look around for stations with different types of pumps.

    Have the same problem on my 72. I found that if I angle the nozle just right it works fine.

    tilt it up some or try pulling it out slightly. That's what I have to do for my '83, b/c the pumps always shut off way too early.Also if you roll back the plastic cup that goes over the whole mouth it won't shut off as quick. The pumps here will shut off after like $5, no way my truck is full hehe. Try $30

    My Jimmy was born as a Diesel and now is a 350, but I still have the large diesel opening for the filler and I have no problems at the pumps.

    I Have less problem with my 75 then I do with my 79 and my Supra. The fill neck on the 79 is recessed so they could put the door on the body and just that couple inches seems to make a big difference. Same pump I have trouble on that will fill the 75 no problem at all. On the 79 I have to pull it back some before it will fill without cutting off.
    These new vapor recovery pumps are plain fussy.
