      Just curious - I have had my 2013 Exec since Tuesday. I have put gas in it twice now. The first time I filled it, it kept shutting off and I never did get the tank filled. This morning I filled it again and it shut off 8 times before the tank was actually filled. Anyone else experience this?

      I haven't had this problem much with my CC but I did with my 09 Dodge Ram. On that truck I had to lock the pump handle one notch below full flow or it would kick off all the time.

      sometimes it depends on the angle of the pump handle to the filler
      tube. next time try raisiing the handle a tad, this may solve your problem.

      I just got my CC two Mondays ago so due for first fill up tomorrow. But I had this issue on my 08 R32 on certain pumps. Sheetz to be exact. I had to pull the pump out about 1/2" to 1" from the whole way in to make it work correctly.

      Had my CC for a bit over a month now and haven't had this happen at all. Used to happen to my 2008 328 once in a while and my 2000 Passat almost every time I got gas. With the Passat it would continuously cut off unless the nozzle was completely turned upside down.
