    It's a common problem. A friend of mine has worked on 3 6.0 Chevy's that would not take fuel at all. I don't remember what it's called, once I hear back from him I'll let you know if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    He said the EVAP vent solenoid. Should set the code p0446. If you can use a scanner and activate the solenoid, if it doesn't click then its busted.

    It is the vent solenoid. I just had mine replaced on my 04 2500hd. Common problem.

    This has been happening to me - but only occasionally - at one gas station near me. It doesn't do it though at other stations, so I was thinking it was something in the pumps at that one particular station. Hmmmm....
