348 make it the best

need some more details. you imply you are leaving the engine running when you are filling the tank? does the engine only cut out then?
Hi,

Not the engine is stopping, but the gas pump.

When I fill in the petrol, the pump stops, detecting the tank is already full (even when is almost empty). It looks the pressure inside the tank is going up, to it is being detected as full already. I was able to fill only ¾ with around 4 or 5 stops.
 
I read the petrol pump he's using cuts out while he's filling but could be wrong. My daily does this if you put the nozzle all the way in, for some reason need to be inserted into the filler fractionally less than all the way or the pump just keeps cutting out. Maybe give that a go first?
Try different orientation of the nozzle, does not work.

perfectly normal; thats just to do with the dia and routing of the filler pipe.

It is strange for me, but maybe there is nothing to take care immediately.
Got to say mine doesn't, it fills fine with no stops at all.
That is I would like to work. Fighting to fill in the tak in your Ferrari, when everybody is watching and taking pictures are not the best option :D
depending on gas station, any other pumps in use, eg flow rate, all my cars can have this, including my dailies! guess its a southern thing!!!
The nozzle has 2 diameter, next time I will try to put in only the small diameter part. That should help to release the air from the tank.

Other pumps in use?!?!?! Must be a southern thing, not enough traffic out here for that - my local garage only has 1 petrol pump :D

Dziękuję :)
My dream is to be a car mechanic, so passion is driving me. Maybe the skillls are not the best, there is always a fear to go into serious mechanical job, but at the end the car is not so complicated :)
 
So...

As we agreed we can do a fair amount by ourselves, so please help :) Yesterday instead of windshield I was spaying my shoes with washing fluid :D Looks there is a hole or some connection issue with driver side windshield nozzle. Any guesses, any common failure?

Second issue is the termo sensor for engine oil. Does not work. I red the sensor is located in the oil tank, is that accessable from wheel arch? Do you know the resistance for the sensor?
 
not sure about first point

oil temp sensor is easily accessible from back right corner; accessible from the bottom, probably no need to even jack the car up.
 
Don't think the first is a common failure, never heard of it happening before. My guess is a pipe has simply come off the nozzle.
