I'm about 100 mile into the tank, so just over 2/3ish full.

Fingers crossed!

Left work, went to the shops to get some dinner, then back to work for a meeting. No issues, idled beautifully.

Drove home 25 miles. No issues, idled beautifully.

Will wait for the fun to start again next fill up.....

Don't overfill tank and see how she performs.

I'll try! As I said previously, if I wait for 'auto' shut off I get a big blow back out of the filler all over the back of the car. I have to do it slowly by sight - but I'll stop as soon as I can see petrol in the tube and see what happens.

Mine can overflow like that if I wait for the click. I always fill it right to the brim and have never had a problem.

Same with my '76.
The '93 is different (early Zetec) and is even slower to fill. I don't brim it.

The auto shut off was originally created so that you didn't have to stand and hold the nozzle while filling the tank - potentially you could go off and do other things while filling (like have a fag smile ). I'm sure you remember the old pumps having that little clip so you could lock the handle in place (now removed in the UK).

I think it's entered 'folklore' a little that it's to do with cars/tanks/emission systems - although that's not to say that some cars don't like being brimmed.

Many modern cars have a flexible inner tank (plus the likes of carbon canisters / vapour recovery). Those inner tanks should not be overfilled (my last few "moderns" all had warnings in the handbook about stopping after the second auto shutoff).

Just another thought - you possibly have a recirc line (excess fuel returned to fuel tank). May be worth a check.

. You soon learn not to stand behind the back panel, unless you enjoy paddling in petrol.
