    I would suggest you take the car for a short 1 mile drive, then switch off, take the key out, and wait about 5 minutes
    Retry and see if the fuel tank sensor resets
    If not, then its time to seek the faulty part

    It seems to happen on quite a lot of modern cars, and it's even happened to me a few times
    There is nothing worse than a customer coming in, "I've just filled up, paid money, and my tank is still empty"
    Between that and the Vectra drivers struggling to get the nozzle out becasue it has locked in the filler
