Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500
This just started about 4 weeks ago that every time I fill up the pump shuts off. I've tried different pumps & even tried pumping it manual (slower) ?
Usually a venting problem in the filler pipe or with the gas tank.
Pressure inside the tank as to escape as fuel is being added.

SOURCE: fuel spills out when I fill up.
I've found with our different vehicles that each one is different; one will shut off continuously, one not soon enough to avoid spitting (this one I do have to listen for), the other likes to have the nozzle at 90 degrees to avoid early shutoff. Try tilting the nozzle toward the front or back of the vehicle to see if you can avoid the messy gusher.

Try not to put nozzle completely in the tank. There is an anti-syphoning device that is smaller than the rest of fill tube and can cause back pressure. This can be removed

Its a fact the pump will kick off on some makes especially trucks. here is a hint. When filling up insert the nozzle fully and then pull it back one inch. This way it will not stop or splash back at you which some pumps do

SOURCE: fuel fill problem
Iown 02 hyundai accent gl 1.6l. Had the problem twice. I used to over fill the tank until I had to spend close to $550.00 USD. The problem is when we overfill the tank. the carbon canister gets clogged and it damages a sensor in the assembly called "DMTL". Thia assy is located under the rear driver side of the car to the left and rear of the fuel tank. Once I replaced the carbon canister, sensor and filter the problem went away. if you let it go for a long time you eventually start smelling gas inside the car after fill ups. Good luck.
