My mk2 focus 2.0tdci refuses to let me fill the tank with diesel. If I pull the trigger fully on the pump it just clicks off, so I have to pull it only slightly and just let the fuel trickle in which takes forever. Anyone else had this problem and know what's causing it?

Don't push it in as far or push it in further?

Ensure that when you put the nozzle in let it rest downwards and don't lift the nozzle upwards.
