Yes this is a common issue with our G's.
Talk to the dealer and I'm sure he'll know about the splash-back valve at the bottom of the filler neck that becomes faulty and sticks closed.

I had this same probem when i got the G. You know when you stick the pump in the car. IT's usually in all the way right? Try sticking the pump half way in to 3/4 the way in and it should fill the tank up the way its supposed to be filled. I did it and it worked for me.

Filler up.................

Take it back to the dealership, this is not a new
problem. Might even be a recall on filler pipe!

Thanks for the advice I'll call the dealership they can once again fix more rattles that I am hearing also. Took it in before for rattles coming from the back windows they told me it was the window regulators and in the process of fixing that they mared up the rear window control covers which I will be pointing out and letting them know I want them replaced. This car makes more noises than my grandpa's old Ford...

Well since my first post car was taken in not once but twice and it has only been maybe three weeks and same problem so guess I'll take it in agin they have one more chance. I am done dealing with this piece of crap car. I have owned more than a few new cars and have had zero problems. For what this car cost I expect zero issues, the rattles are even unexceptable.

Sorry you are having these problems. I had this too and it did require two trips to the dealer to get it fixed properly. Have not had a problem in 6 months since then.

They should be able to take care of the rattles too. All dealers are not equal, but most are good. If you are driving distance to another dealer, maybe give them a shot.

RE: to can't fill tank

I have had the same problem and I was told by the dealership that it is a normal thing and I should live with it. Had lots of problems with this dealer. They said it happens depending on the rate of fill of the gas pump (fast fill = problems). It seems to be true, but is a pain in the neck. Glad to hear about the splashback valve -- I'll bring it up to them next time.

About those rattles

Let's talk about those rattles. I have had 6 separate rattles in my car and there seems to be a new one every 2,000 miles. Right now I have 4 active rattles and a brake squeal. Between the buzzing noizes, cricket squeaks and squeals, it sounds like a symphony of insects in the country woods. I'm disgusted. It sounds like the car is falling apart as I drive it, kinda like the Beverly Hillbillies mobile. I've brought all of these to the dealer's attention and they either don't want to admit these rattles exist, think I'm imagining it. The few that they have been able to fix have all returned after 2 weeks. Next time I'm going with the Lexus.

Well my issue of not being able to fill the tank up all the way came back for the fourth and I called Infiniti customer service and told them I wanted to set up a arbatration hearing and that if the car goes to the dealership I will not be leaving in it. They mentioned the fast fill thing I told them I wasn't buying that excuse. I have owned a bunch of different vehicles and never had this kind of problem. And the rattles it's not worth it to take it in for that. My concern is if I have to keep the car and try to sell it or even trade it in will all these dealer visits show up on a CarFax report? Because the Sedan seems to have ****ty resale as it stands..

I took my car in for this problem after 3 failed attempts (different gas stations) at filling my tank all the way.

The service advisor told me they could not duplicate the problem. He said that it could be a problem with the fill rate of the stations I fill at. The pressure of the pumps I used are too high causing the valve to shut early. So I asked if I was supposed to not hold the trigger all the way when I fill. He said no and that the stations need to adjust the pressure on the pumps...

Anyone heard of this before?

My dealership won't do any TSB work unless they can duplicate the problem.

same here. just don't insert the nozzle completely, and squeeze the trigger only so much.

That is horse **** So every gas station I go to I need to ask them to turn down the pressure just for me???? Give me a break they are just making excuses for a poor quality vehicle. I talked to Infiniti customer service today and he had the info from the dealership and was going to review it and I reminded him if I take the car to the dealership I will not leave in it. I also told him I don't expect to get all the money I've paid toward the car I told him I do expect to get the money I put down on the car..
