    I purchased a 2015 LR4 mid last year and the dealer carried out several repairs such as broken sun roof etc.
    We noticed a faint burping sound several times while driving the car and the dealers mechanic claimed they couldn’t get it to do it. The car had 81,000 miles on it and when we received the gas tank was full.
    After the first Long drive we went to fill up the tank and had the same problem as you. The dealer quoted $2,000 to fix it which I rejected, they said the whole filling tube needed replacing.
    I had used another group to check the car over for and their LR specialist said it was the filter at the bottom of the fill tube & it required removing the tank to replace. Not having facilities I had them do it for the quoted price of $700, no issues since.

    Interesting. I'm not seeing any filter available for the fill tube, unless perhaps it's integrated as part of the tube.

    Did the invoice list a part number that was replaced?

    Filled up the last time without issues. I did go back to the stock gas cap. I had been using a locking cap (as the door does not lock on US models...)

    Are you sure the tank is not filling up? I had the same problem and it was the sensors in the gas tank that had to replaced. When I filled up before the most it would read is half of a tank.

    Yes, the tank is filling all the way up (it is a little hard to tell with gas milage on these tanks). I did go back to the stock gas cap. We had a rash of gas theft from vehicles and for some odd reason the US version does not have the locking mechanism on the gas door.
