It's the cooler fuel hitting the engine. Thats why you see alot of us keep the RPM's high during a pit stop. Now if the tank still has a little fuel left in it, you don't need the higher RPM's. But if the tank is empty, or on the verge of empty the cooler fuel will shut it off.

This is funny I have Radical 621T in my Hellfire and RC8 running Sidewinder 30% fuel. Never had a problem with it dying while when refueling.

i had the same problem three times in the main this weekend, the engine was running around 195 to 200 and we would fill it up and the engine would get real rich flame out, im running o'donnell, this is the first time that this has happened to me im looking into the cooler fuel thing, however does anyone have anyother problems that has caused this for them.
