Hi everyone,

I have never had this issue with any vehicle before.

When fueling our 2009 diesel Santa Fe, when nearly full, diesel fuel starts pouring out from (I guess) the top of the fuel tank, forming a good sized puddle on the forecourt.

Normally on all our cars before, I have observed that its possible to literally top the fuel right up to the brim and all is well.

We have recently purchased this car from a 2nd hand dealer and it had a few issues which fell under warranty.
The last problem was the fuel pick up pump which the diesel specialist replaced.

Has anyone else come across this? What was the fix?

Also we have previously filled it right up and nothing leaked anywhere.
Just seems like a nuisance and a real hazard when fuel starts spilling out before the pump handle has a chance to switch off.


Thanks in advance

We have been back and forth to the dealers mechanics for nearly 2 months now about heaps of other problems.
Unfortunately I cant get under as its not high enough and I don't have tools to lift it.
might have to start being my own mechanic lol

Yeah that would be the best thing to do. (check all the fittings)

But this is not normal right? It shouldn't p!ss out the breather like a race horse?

I assume your talking about the low pressure in-tank fuel pump? If that's the case that would be the first place to look for your fuel leak. Maybe the pump module seal hasn't been fitted properly. You don't need to get under the car to check that, but you will need to remove the rear seats. So it would probably be best to just take it back to whoever replaced the pump and have them fix it.

Hi everyone.

Today I was able to get the car on a hoist to have a good look.
The folks who replaced the pick up pump had forgotten to snap together a connection for what looks like a breather hose.

got it sorted there.

thank you all
