[DML] Re: Problem when filling the gas tank

Hi Paul,

I have had this on one or two occasions.
It's not a De Lorean specific problem but it hapens with a lot of 
modern cars too.
Usually after having driven for a longer time (warm fuel).
The solution is not to put the nozzle in too deep as the hot 
air/fumes can not get out of the tank, wait a moment and then start 
filling up slowly at first.
