I wanted to reach out to everyone in the forum to see if any one else is having trouble with their gas tanks. I have a 2013 WRX and have it at the dealership right now for the second time in 6 months.
The same thing has happened twice now. My gas light comes on, I stop at my earliest convenience and go to put gas in my car. The gas nozzle pops like it is full, and gas starts pouring out of the tank and down the side of my car. I can also hear air rushing out of the tank like there is built up pressure in the tank.
In January when this happened I was out of town and had to get my car fixed in Palm beach, FL (I live in Orlando). They ended up completely replacing my gas tank, so they told me, and changed out the actual hose leading to the tank. When I asked what happened they bounced around what happened and did not tell me what happened, how it was caused, or how to possibly prevent the same thing from happening.
Thanks for any help or suggestions. I hate to have to deal with this, and I am not overly pleased with how Subaru has handled this. Out of principle I am considering selling my WRX so I don't have to deal with them anymore.
