Question about 2001 Hyundai Sonata
There is an antisiphon valve in the gas tank. It may be stuck. You may be able to move it by running a long flexible object down the fill tube. If this doesn't work you may need to drop the gas tank and replace it manually. It isn't as hard as it sounds, I've done it. Just be sure to disconnect the level sensor plugs from under the rear passenger seat.. The tank is held in place by two straps, I unscrewed the fill hose cap from the car frame and dropped the whole asembly. The fill hose is connected with a hose clamp to the tank, and the valve is set into the opening and can be pried out with a long handled screwdriver. You may be able to disconnect the fill tube without dropping the tank if you have enough clearance.
