I'm having a hard time trying to gas my car. I have tried to position the fuel nozzle in different places but still keeps cutting off. I'm curious if you have to use a fuel nozzle with the vapor recovery system. If anyone can help i would apprecitate it.

It is the angle and restricter in the fill tube plus the pressure from the pump causing it to do that. There is nothing wrong with this. You need to find the best angle to use when filling the vehicle. I had this same problem in a 2005 Escape. Had had to find the right place to hold the filling handle and the right position to hold the grip to get it to stop.
I think you are hearing your fuel-pump. Try a few different things, with someone close to where you can hear the sound. Talk with that person. Ask if they can hear the sound with the car off, with the car in the run position(not running), and with the car running. Take notes, If the car has rear air-ride it could be an air leak. But it could also be the fuel-pump or an exhaust leak.
Sorry to hear you are still having problems.If you are going to change the pump I would certainly not recommend you do it yourself.If it is the V4 motor I am thinking of, you would need to get to it by removing the rear seat ,remove access panel , and pretty much play around in the gas for an hour or so to get it off in the first place.
What I did find was this on the net on a recall by Audi to replace 2002/03 model fuel pumps as noted below.
RE: 2002 Audi A4 Fuel Pump Change:
I just had my fuel pump changed out by the dealer. Here is what the letter said-
"Safety Recall JL 2003 year Audi A4 quattro with 1.8L Turbo or 3.0L engine and 2003 Model year Audi A6 with 3.0L engine" The fuel pump on some affected vehicles may contain a carbon brush set that is susceptible to premature wear.
On invoice it says-
JL12 Install fuel delivery unit and sealing washer. 1 8E0-919-133-G Washer 1 8E0-906-087-P Fuel Pump
No charge for unit or install. Just call them up and give the vin number to see if your car is affected.
On the other note of your code error '1&3 misfire',try and have it re-set (it might be an old error)and see if it comes back.
Hope this helps ,and I will research your problem further with pleasure if need more help.
It might be an injector problem.Sometimes if the injectors are not sealing properly they can leak fuel into the manifold even when the engine is off as there is still residual pressure there and you engine would be essentially' flooded' when you try start it again .After half an hour or so,and it would take some seconds after that to run normally untill the excess fuel is burned.
It is either with your injectors or fuel pressure. Check your pressure and injectors. Try one of those injector cleaners. If that doesn't work check the pressure in your fuel lines. It has to be constant at all times.
I had the same issue with my '05 A4 1.8T. Turns out it was the RPM sensor. Audi tried to tell me it was teh fuel pump and the cam-shaft positioning sensor. Paid for teh fuel pump replacement and it died 6 blocks from the dealership. Then they replaced the RPM snesor, works great now... Except it's still an Audi.
We own a number of gas stations in CT. this is a known problem with Audi A-4"s. Not a week goes by that we don't have to rescue a customer. Audi should step up and do a recall on the fuel nozzle.
It happens only in the Audi A-4.
