I have the same issue. The fuel nozzle shuts off repeatedly and takes quite some time to get a full tank. When I first open the gas cap, there is a noticible audible let off of pressure. When I stop fueling, I still hear 'gurgling' for several seconds in the tank. I live on a dusty rock road, but I've had this Jeep since it was new and never before had this problem until the past month.

Tank hard to fill, There is a release of air when I open the gas cap, I can pump about a gallon, after which I have to wait for the fuel to enter the tank. I can hear a gurgling sound as the fuel enters the tank. It takes quite a bit of time to fill up. Repairman said he encounter problem before, and had to replace the fuel tank, but that it could be the charcoal filter.
