And it's cropped up dead after service. Not very inspiring.
The auto-cut off lever on the nozzle normally has 2 or 3 notches. Moving the lever up or down on these positions, controls the flow rate of fuel. Try with the lowest flow rate.

For helping remove any airlocks, try rocking the vehicle gently as it is being filled.

Hope this helps.

Thanks man. But the point is it's not supposed to happen in the first place. There are no air blocks. Lowest rate does not work either. Attendant has to stand by and force feed like you would do when topping up the tank.

If he manually force feeds at a higher rate, is there any spillage? Sounds like an obstruction in the inlet.

What really happened in Service? Were you present with the car?

That the auto cut off is happening earlier is due to back pressure generated. If it happening after service, check if they changed the fuel filter. During that they must have either blocked the breather pipe, or constricted the fuel filling pipe.
