When I first got my LFL, I read in the manual that it had almost a 25 gallon tank. So I though I'd fill that sucker up to the gills and drive for a month without having to refuel. BAD FUCKING IDEA.

Apparently, topping off the tank floats carbon chunks back through the vent tube and causes blockage that forces the gas pump to shut off prematurely or worse.

For months I suffered and identified pump stations that were less sensitive and it took more than a year before the blockage opened up to allow normal pumping. Don't top off...ever!

Also, if you remove the rear passenger fender liner, you can get access to a lot of the hoses that govern that particular hell.
