Don't think it's any thing to do with how far it goes in but mine is slow to fill as well. I find that once you get the fuel flowing in, start slowly without fully pressing the trigger you can build up speed till the trigger is fully pressed and then it works ok but if you just fully press the trigger it knocks off at once.
It's not necessarily that it's slow to fill up - it clicks off constantly no matter how light I am on the trigger.

I Googled for this and struggled to find anything apart from that I'm maybe putting a little too much pressure on the nozzle and it's causing the fuel to splash back up. So maybe it's the opposite of what I thought? I perhaps need to pull the nozzle out a little further than I would normally do. Guess there's on way to find out.

Thanks for the responses.
