At the gas pump...

Has anyone else had trouble with the fuel nozzle clicking off way too soon when filling up? Doesn't matter where i fill up at, if I don't hold the nozzle at a certain angle, it won't fill up all the way. Just wondering if there's a flaw in the design of the filler neck of the tank.

Actually, not fully related to the Murano, I've noticed that newer pumps seem to be much more touchy about how they are positioned to work properly. One of the stations around us upgraded to new pumps last year, and I stopped going there because I was frustrated fighting with the pump (wouldn't start unless you pushed it in all the way at the perfect angle and crossed your fingers just the right way, then sometimes would click off about 1/2 way full and I'd have to wiggle it around). And that was with multiple vehicles. I thought it was just that particular station, but then recently (couple months ago) another station upgraded their pumps. Totally different brand and design, but they still seem to have trouble.

I'm sure it's something in their design to cut down on escaping vapors and whatnot, which the intention I'm fine with, but I'm now really hoping that my main station keeps their "old" pumps for a few more years...

The local station I usually fillup at just replaced their fuel pumps. The newer pumps do shut off earlier, leading to a frustrating fillup. But what I have found is that if I use the less aggressive tab on the pump to fill the tank slower (there are usually two positions to lock the squeezy handle in, fast flow and slow flow) - on slow flow the tank fills up properly. Could be a blocked evap system, I don't know, no CEL, so I just fill it up slowly and its fine.

I've had good luck pulling the pump handle about halfway out of the car's filler neck when pumping. I just pay close attention to it when doing this. It doesn't usually stop when it is partially pulled out this way.
