Porsche Crest Refueling

I always have a problem with my 930 Slant when I'm refueling; I have to hold the nozzle at a certain angle to keep the fuel flowing. If I change the angle or try to lock the handle so I won't have to hold it, it stops flowing. My other cars don't have this problem, though. Is it something with my car or is refueling a 930 supposed to be like this?

Thanks,

Mine does the same. Also, when you get it to just about full and it clicks, stop fueling. Once, I clicked it just a couple more times to round it to the nearest 50 cents and it overfilled! Gas went down the drain tube and nothing got on the paint, but it left a nice puddle on the ground. I won't make that mistake again.

Wow, you read my mind. Was at the gas station today trying to fuel up but gave up after about a dozen clicks. Got about 2 gallons in...just enough to get me to the next gas station. Don't know what it is but at some gas station I can fill up just fine but others not so much. Real frustrating sometimes especially when the pump scratches your paint trying to get thr right angle.

The vapor recovery nozzles at filling stations seem to have variable levels of sensitivity for the auto-shut off. For the 930, generally partial insertion of the nozzle works for me. And definitely do not top off after it stops.

I always turn the nozzle handle upside down and it seems to flow better.

does not have to be a slant.

i have to hold it upside down, then start slow and get the fuel flowing good, then depending on how sensitive the handle is, i might be able to lock it on hi.

my jeep GC is this way too. have to hold it a certain way and partially pull it out.
