Can't Fuel

Anyone ever had a problem trying to fill up? I can't seem to get it to take any gas.

2016 5.7 FFV Crewmax 49k miles.
Never used E85.
Never top off.
No check engine light.
Just started doing this last week.

Toyota diagnosed (charcoal canister over the phone) when I first encountered issue. I work out in the Oil and Gas industry. My truck has been sitting at my house for a week now. Any ideas?

Anyone ever change out the charcoal canister? Can't seem to find any info on anyone having issue with this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Is it sending fuel to engine ? Stuttering , stalling , excessive smoking / exhaust ?
Sounds strange to me . Fuel gauge working properly ? No water in the fuel tank?

Truck runs fine with no codes. Gauge working properly. Shouldn't have any water in the tank.

On other vehicles, I have seen caps from fuel injector cleaner/fuel treatment bottles get jammed in the filler tube restricting gas flow.

Possibly the lower portion of the filler tube has a "roll over ball" and its stuck.

NOT positive gassers have this device ,, all my ram cummins did though.

THIS is a shot in the dark ,, more likly someone put something in there that stopped up the works.

Seen that condition on a customer’s Lexus once.
In that particular case, we found a pair of AA batteries stuck at the bottom of his filler tube after we lowered the tank.
Turned out his kids were playing in the garage and thought it was fun to drop them in there.
Ended up being a $400 game.

If you or someone you know has an inspection camera, take a look down the fill tube, you could see anything down there.

Not sure if it is safe to push down a gasoline feed tube...

Have extended warranty. Of course it doesn't cover the charcoal canister. It was replaced this morning. Went to fill up. Still no luck. Came back and asked them to put my old one back. Currently being re-diagnosed. They said they might need to open up a case with Toyota. Currently waiting.

No. Didn't drive it much after I found out. I've been driving my wife's Tundra.

They replaced the charcoal canister after I told them I was pretty sure it wasn't the problem(I was guessing due to no CEL). Drove it to nearest gas station and.....still the same problem. My truck is currently still at dealership.

I am supposed to get a refund (almost 1100) back on Monday when the Service Manager talks to me. They said they have to open up a case with Toyota. I think their next move is to replace my fuel tank possibly.

Thanks for keeping this thread up to date. It has to be frustrating. I'm interested in the solution. I haven't had this issue, but it will be a good thing to know.

I would at a minimum buy an inspection camera or pull off the filler tube, both as suggested above, and take a look. A camera that uses your phone or tablet as the screen is less than 50 bucks. A new tank is going to be expensive and the tank itself is not likely to be the problem.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Just got a call from the Toyota dealership. They ordered me a new fuel tank. They believe the flapper inside is stuck. Luckily, I have the extended warranty and it covers it. I should have my truck by Wednesday.
