After filling up my tank a part of the cap broke off and the "lip" preventing debris is no longer there. I have looked EVERYWHERE to find out what the name of the part is and can't find out. What's the deal?

Could be a kinked hose. look under the fill tube to the tank. Could also be a stuck check ball in the tube. This ball prevents people from stealling your gas and gas spilling out incase of a roll over.
Remove the back seat by just pulling up on the bottom cushion hard. then look at the service cover for the fuel tank. remove that and look and see if the seal is leaking for the fuel pump aND THE HOSES ARE RIGH THERE TOO SEE IF YOU SEE GAS LEAKING. IF NOT WITH THAT ALL APART DRIVE TO A GAS STATION AND FILL IT UP AND SEE IF YOU SEE WHERE THE LEAK IS FROM.
You may have a fuel tank vent valve that isn't working. This valve lets air into and out of the fuel tank as fuel is added to the tank and then later used by the engine. If the valve won't open or is plugged with dirt/dust/debris then it's becomes very difficult to add fuel to the tank. This problem would also cause the EVAP system to fail a self test and turn on the check engine lamp with a related service code. Often there is more than one reason a particular code like this can be set, a loose fuel cap being just one of them, and it takes a bit of testing to determine the exact cause. A good service facility should be able to test the system and determine what is wrong fairly easily on this one. Good luck, hope this helps.
Two things come to mind. You broke the pressure seal to the fuel system when you took off the gas cap. The fresh gas rushing in disturbs any dirt or debris on the bottom of the tank.
Next time you use the car when you arrive at our destination, simulate what you do when you fuel up. This will mimic everythig except the new fuel rushing in. If it is still hard to start you know it's something to do with the evaporative fuel system. If not, you need the fuel tank inspected .
take it to a lock smith to remove the broken part or you could jam the broken part down to where the ignition will turn with the broken key. I advise taking it to a lock smith to remove the broken part
Do you use only one gas station? Try another station / brand, it could be that the gas supplied to your station is off. I had a similar problem with my old Land Rover, then we found out that there was some illuminating paraffin in the gas. It didn't have a light to show a problem, but just didn't have power everytime I used a certain gas station. The dealer is now under investigation for diluting his gas to make some easy bucks.
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..
HI can you tell us the NO. of DTC when you check it by diagnoses scan tool that is very helpful to fix the problem so generally my be the problem in fuel tank vent pipe or the ventilation valve that work with the (EVAP) evaporate emission control system
