When fuel nozzle clicks off it burps out gas onto the ground , problem not resolved so I only fill to about 3/4 full !
My problem is the same. I have to angle the fuel nozzle a certain way for it to fill. Then I have to be careful not to over fill or it will spit out allover the place. I was told it is some sort of value in the tank and they would have take out the whole tank and replace it to fix it, so I will live with it.

Fuel tank hard to fill. Acts like tank is full. Can only add 1/4 gallon at a time, then have to wait 10-15 seconds to add a bit more. Requires 20 minutes or more to fill the tank. Visual inspection underneath looks good - no kinks or damage. Removing the fuel filler hose from the tank and looking into both with a mirror look normal.
