Gas leak.

Hey guys first time posting here,
I've noticed a handful of times that I get a puddle of gas when filling up. I've had the car for a year and have only noticed it like 4-5 times. I was wondering if anyone else having or have had the same issue? Thanks!

I've noticed that as well! It doesn't leak when I drive or it's parked either. But I've noticed once or twice that once I'm done filling up, I see a little puddle underneath.

I've read that it has an overflow hose and that's what causes the puddling. If that's the case will the gas come out while driving?

That makes sense if true. I usually wait til the pump stops then I press on it a little more to make sure it's full. I never noticed it leak other than parked when filling gas up

That is supposedly very bad for your car. When the pump stops, the tank is full!

+1 on not filling after it clicks. I wouldn't use very bad but it greatly increases the chance of spillage.

Correct. It has a drain hole to prevent over filling. Found this out first hand. Only give your stang what it needs.

There's this little booklet called an Owners a Manual that comes with the car. Has a lot of great information like don't over fill your gas tank or you will have spillage. It also tells you to stop filling at the first click.

Not sure who this is directed at, but I don't ever fill up after the pump clicks off.

The only reason why I've been filling after the click is because my old car wouldn't fill up after the click. I'd check and it would only be 3/4 of the way there so it became a habit. I usually don't go over the click on the Mustang.

Well it's directed at the thread of course. Accurate information direct from Ford.

Btw fknjulian you're ok. Per the manual: • Allow no more than two automatic click-offs when filling.

Seems contradictory I know but sometimes you just want to round off the dollar amount and Ford is just trying to avoid you having spillage since it can cause fires.
