Hard to fill generator and aux tanks???

Every time I go to fill the gas tanks on my voltage 3905 I have to click it click it click it till it's full and that makes for a loooooooong fuel stop for 40-60 gallons.. any ideas or reasoning for this and how did y'all fix this problem if your hauler was doing the same????

Mines the same. The trick that has worked for me is pulling the nozzle out as far as possible.

Just the unfortunate angle of the fill hose - doesn't drop enough to be able to fill quickly.

Another example of people not using the products they design.

I ran into the same problem. I pushed a length of plastic pipe down the filler tube and met resistance where the tube meets the gas tank. I pushed harder and the pipe pushed thru whatever was blocking it. works fine now.
Could have been a shipping plug that they failed to remove. and it's in my tank now.

Anti siphon screen maybe?... that with the poor angle maybe the problem..I'll check it out and see if mine is the same and replace cap with a locking one... thanks for the tip!

Is the tank lid closest to your pump the pump tank? Being the other is for the generator...

I included this issue in my latest round of warranty claims. I'll be interested to see what comes of it.

This drives me crazy as well...then I end up only filling with 15-20 gallons because any longer at the pump would produce a psycho episode.

We need a fix for this!
