iv'e had a lesser version of the same problem. Frequently when I'm refueling, the nozzle thing clicks off.

Try this. After you insert the nozzle, pull it back a centimeter, and it'll work properly. Sometimes nozzles need a little breathing room.

Good luck.

I have the same issue on my truck, I have to stick the nozzle in and turn it counter clockwise, from 6 o'clock where it typically sits to about 4-5 o'clock and it works. Might work for you too.

Good luck
