I've owned the K5 GT Line since October 10th. Recently I've noticed that when pumping gas the tank spews after filling. It started out a small amount but today was ALOT.... Has anyone else noticed this???

Hasn't happened to me. I fill to when pump kicks off once. I've had mine since November 3000 miles on It now.

I had it happen once. More importantly, I had issues with the fuel filler door not wanting to release. I fought with it for nearly a day trying to get it to unlatch, then it suddenly started working again and hasn't acted up since.

I was having that problem and figured out that the fuel door locks with the car doors to prevent siphoning. I was embarrassing myself at the gas station trying to get it opened the other day and unlocked the car- popped right open

Geez, don't I feel stupid now. You are correct. The fuel door locks when the car doors are locked. I suppose it tells about this in the manual but I haven't gotten that far. Thanks for your post.
