Fuel filling problems

Anyone else noticed this???

Seems like the fuel breather has frozen shut on my 147 JTD. Took ages to fill as the diesel kept coming up the filler. had to keep waiting for the tank to settle down before I could trickle some more in.

I tend to have problems intermitently on my 156 but I put it down to dodgy pumps as it tends to be quite random.

I think that the problem is with the cold - the colder it is the more stable the bubbles that the pump produces seem to be, probably because the diesel looks like it is thicker.
