Ok. So I go to fill up my Insight, maybe 50 miles of range left, and gas clicks off after about 8 gallons. Then ....... gas starts bubbling up the filler neck. It doesn’t come up and out but you can see it in the filler neck. This bubbling goes on for at least 30 seconds or more. The ambient temperature is 82 degrees. This has happened on 2 occasions. I took it to Honda and they said it’s normal as long as it doesn’t get so severe that it comes and drain down the fender. I think it’s a problem with a check valve in the gas tank vent??? Any insight, no pun intended, that you can provide is appreciated. Also the car has a slight vibration in the drive line when sitting still and the engine is charging the traction battery. The traction battery will only have two bars so the charging system might be under heavy load. Once again Honda says normal but I am asking for opinions. The photo is a screen shot from a video so I apologize but it’s much worse on video.
