Question about 2011 Ford Escape
I dont think you damaged the tank. There is a filler neck tube that separates where you put fuel in and the tank itself that is about 3 feet long. You could have damaged the cap less fuel fill. If you dont see any damage..like the cap less door not closing or missing I think you should be ok. If your check engine light comes on in the next week..it could be related to small damage to the cap less system.
Your vehicle could still be under warranty for the cap less filler neck ...if there is any damage or the fuel nozzles keep getting stuck.

Make sure you have the check valves in place on the lines at the sending units on the tanks. If the switching valve on the frame rail goes bad it can push fuel back up the return to the opposite tank than you are pulling from causing fuel to push up and out the inlet. If these were not removed and replaced on the new sending units they will have to be purchased from the dealer.

theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

get the filler hose checked out as it may have a spring inside it to hold its shape or something has been dropped inside restricting it!

Hello, I may have an idea, the tank is not venting. Consider a gas can pouring without the vent open. Its slow, and needs to displace air to pour correctly.
On some fuel systems there are vent solenoids for the evaporator cannister. The vacuum is suppose to draw excess fumes after the engine starts. Its not suppose to keep vacuum while fueling. You may also have a tank hung crooked. If the low side of the tank is on the fuel fill, you will never get gas to go uphill to where the cavity is on the tank. Simply you are trying to fill the tank from the bottom instead of the top.
You may need to rehang the tank. If you are not the original owner of the truck you may want to check to see if this is the correct tank or an extended range aftermarket tank.

There is a tank pressure vent that allows the pressure from the gas entering the tank when you are filling it, to be vented, otherwise it will kick the fuel nozzle off. That vent ties into the same system as the valve in the recall. Ask your dealer.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
