there is a problem with the air trying to get out as the fuel is being pumped in . This activates the shut of in the nozzle of the hose . Try holding the trigger just open so that you control the amount of fuel flowing in . Try rotating the nozzle in the filler a few degrees so that the fuel coming back will no activate the shut of system. I have found some pump systems are extremely sensitive to the air/ fuel flow back so I am selective in which pumps I pull up at for this reason. Remember you do no have to pull the trigger full bore when filling as you can control the setting with your fingers.
I doubt it. Usually the problem is a blockage in the fill tube, sometimes the vent for the tank is not working. But there are several components to the EVAP system. I would check the filler tube first.
I have seen the same issue, the nozzles click off at some stations, others do not. One thing that I have tried and had a bit of success with is pressing the nozzle real tight against the filler hole. The rush of air coming up the filler neck is what clicks off the nozzle, not the fuel. So, pressing in tighter seems so let the pressure equalize in the filler neck. Try it, maybe it will work for you.
You need to drop tanks and find out where blockage is and remove it! Temporarily, you can fill from a gas can, slowly so air can escape while filling! I'd at least look underneath and find out if the vent pipe to the fill neck is crimped anywhere.
there is a vent tube that runs along side the fuel tank fill pipe, this tube allows air to went out as fuel is put in,if it kinks (it is very soft thin plastic tube) then u end up with your problem, replace the vent tube, the fill pipe and vent tube come as one part.
