    Cant put gas in...

    Sorry if this has been posted already but I looked through quite a few pages and did some searching and I'm not getting anywhere. I recently purchased a 2014 that has an issue with filling the gas tank. I've been on youtube and have a pretty good idea of the different places to look for an obstruction in the evaporative emissions system but I was hoping someone on here has maybe dealt with all this before and could give me some pointers. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I have t heard of that issue with these cars before.

    Does it have any check engine light?

    One shot in the dark is a vent valve on the charcoal canister thatís stuck closed. You might be able to test that by just unplugging it next time you need to fill up.
    The charcoal canister is vented via a hose that goes up towards the fuel tank and into the body. It might be plugged but, doubtful but you never know.

    Iíve seen the wires to the vent solenoid break where it goes up the to bumper and the odd one corrode at the solenoid on the canister but they didnít have filling up issues that I know of.

    I insert only the tip of the gas pistol, and hold it in an almost vertical angle. That way it is easier to fill.

    Sorry for taking so long to reply ya'll. Life's got me busier than a one legged man in an a$$ kickin contest. I've had a bad run of vehicle luck lately but now that i finally got my pickup back I should be able to work on the Mirage. Thanks for the advice.
