My 99 forester has developed a problem letting the gas enter the tank. When I try to add gas to the tank, the gas hose from the filing station shuts off without letting much gas flow into the tank. Less than .4 tenths of a gallon will flow and the gas line shuts off. Doesn't matter if you manually hold the lever or use the auto fill notch. It can take 10/15 minutes to fill the tank. The dealer says that he thinks someone tried to steal gas and damaged the filler tube. He says he needs to replace the entire tank. Anyone have a simiiar problem or a suggestion. I've taken to filling a plastic tank and then emptying the plastic into to main tank. Still not fun.
