Fuel tank shuts off after only 3 to 4 gallons. Then I have to squeeze and pump a gallon at a time until full! I have tried several gas stations, several pumps and pump types, I have varied the flow ratio and the problem persists. The local dealership is very helpful and the most curtious, but the problem is still present after they have replaced the charcoal cannister, checked the lines and replaced the gas tank (since the back flow trap is inside the tank. They will be trying again to fix this problem on may 10th. They have a technician that is here from japan that will be checking it out all day. This appointment makes 4 scheduled visits for the same problem. I love this vehicle,but the fuel filler problem is unacceptable. I know there was a similar problem with the 1999 Miata. On the Miata forums on the web other 2000 Miata owners have this problem too. Thank you, mr. Jardine.
