English term or phrase:pressure spike
it refers to a Ribbon Peal Away Fill Limit Vent Valve:
"1.As the refueling event begins, perssure in the tank increases rapidly due to the introduction of liquid fuel. The max. pressure peak is a function of the fuel volatility, fuel temp, and tank temperature. Hot fuel into a cold tank causes *pressure to spike*. Cold fuel into a hot tank can cause a vacuum.
2. . . .
3. At approximately 100% fill level, the FLVV closes and causes the tank *pressure to spike*. This *pressure spike* causes fuel to back up the filler pipe and shut off the refueling nozzle. Since there is pressure in the tank, a sealing Fill Tube Check Valve (FTCV) is used to stop well back of liquid fuel."
