2002 Jaguar XJ8 Question: My gas tank will not allow more than 6 gallons then erupts gasoline.

Recently, I tried to fill the gas tank which was almost empty. About one minute into the process of filling...gasoline began to spew out from the filler hole.
Same thing happened yesterday when I was only able to put 6 gallons into the tank...which began spewing gas again. It appears that something is inside the tank. Any ideas? The fuel gauge needle is registering about that amount.

    Thank you for the information. At the moment the weather here is about two feet of accumulated snow and too cold for me to attack the problem in my garage. I will tackle it later and let you know what transpired. Thanks again,
