Re: 156 v6 Fuel/petrol filling problem
Apart from my 147 I also have a MGB Roadster. Filling the MGB is a right b1tch! This is due to the sheer angle that the car filler pipe goes through. I end up just dribbling the petrol in. I guess that the sensors on the nozzle register a feedback due to the slowness of the petrol going down the angled pipe. I put up with it but look a complete dork filling the MG! Now, back to the Alfa - could this be a similar situation on yours? As for resetting by the dealer - I'm with Chris on this one. As for a blocked pipe - what's it blocked with? unless somebody's stuffed a rag down it there's no way it's blocked with petrol. As has been said, all cars are different, all petrol pump nozzles are different and sadly I think you just may have to put up with it. Maybe with practice you'll get the hang of it? Have a good Alfsi weekend! Dai.
