Don't hold the fill handle down so far :-) My tank fill can't keep up with the nozzle at most docks and I have to have them gate it back at the pump to slow the flow, otherwise the nozzle clicks off as the fuel comes up the fill hose or it overflows.

I think part of the reason for them not making them anymore is that they last practically forever. Mine is over 30 years old and is still in perfect condition, they didn't design obsolescence into them, unlike most things these days...
