Charcoal canister could be soaked with fuel. The "check engine" warning lamp could come on with this also. The canister can be taken off and drained by a technician. Its a good practice to stop putting fuel in tank when the nozzle clicks off the first time. If you keep trying to top off tank as much as you can, the fuel vapor system can get flooded.
