Very hard to fill diesel tank (2.4 JTD SW)


Having tried to get some diesel in my sportwagon, I can only get about 3 litres in at a time and then I get a big slush of diesel and air coming out of the filler. The tank was less than 1/4 full, so that is not the issue here.

Is there any sort of breather pipe from the tank that may be blocked?

I have only put about 20 litres in, as it is a real time consuming job...

A friend had the same problem with his petrol TS,he seemed to think it was the small pipe(breather pipe?) that runs down the outside of the filler pipe was blocked.
Don't think he ever fixed it
