My "fix" is happening on Monday. Will report back...
Well, after my gas tank and sensor were replaced last week, I had the opportunity to fill up my take from 3.5L reserve. I'm sad to report that I was only able to fill 21L before the gas actually overflowed out of my tank. Once I let the gas settle down the neck, I was able to add a few more liters to a maximum of 24.468L before the gas wanted to overflow again so I stopped. Not sure why the gas pump didn't actually kick off. It may have been something with the gas station's own pump, I'm not sure of that. I could hear the tank filling and I was expecting it to kick out as I could hear the gas coming up the neck of the gas tank. I let my dealership know that I will be coming in again with an almost empty tank so I can bring one of the technicians out with me to fill the car. I will let him or her pump the gas and stand back and see what will happen. THIS ISSUE IS NOT RESOLVED FOR ME!!! for a 33L tank with 3.5 L left in reserve, the gas should not have overflowed after 21L. I'm back with the same problem...
It is from my understanding that the replacement tank needs to meet the standards established by the original tank, so just the tank itself needs testing.I haven't read all the reply's and comments on this fueling issue, so forgive me if I'm repeating what has been said.
If a new fuel tank is supplied, the entire vehicle will have to be re crash tested, even with a small change in the tank, so they can have the tank but can't supply due to the lack of certification. That's what this retired car manufactures employee recalls.
I assume that same issue may be holding up 2017 453 coupes (mine included).
Thank you for posting the specifics of your 453's fix back in post 608. Question about the 7.9 gallons that you filled, on top of your 0.9 reserve gas:I got my car back last and when I finally had to fill up (my gauge read .9 gal) I was able to put 7.9 gals in.
