Filling Fuel Tank

A problem that I have been dealing with is the fill rate of one of my tanks. My chassis is a 1984 Ford E-350 with dual tanks. The front/main tank just seems to want to spit fuel back out the vent tube which in turn seems to reduce the input flow of fuel to next to nothing. I'm sure it would take me an hour or longer, to fill the one tank. Has anyone else experienced this and if so what was your resolution.

Bad fuel filler vent hose maybe? mine sucks, it is almost level (parallel) with the ground so the gas pours backout.. have to fill it with a 5 gallon can and stick the nozzle deep in.

Check your vent line, it may be plugged or kinked.

Look for a low spot while you're at it. The low spot can/will hold fuel, causing the line to stop acting as a vent. Doesn't take much of a dip in that line to cause a headache when filling...

Johnny, I have the same prob. when I fill I turn handle up anf fill, no prob. if I keep it down in the normal way, gas wants to back out. it's the way the filler is being so low to the ground at least that's the way on my rig. try it next time and see what happens.
