Can I have the year--make--model--engine size? The air in the tank has to go somewhere or it will burp back up the fill pipe and shut the pump off. There may be a vent tube that is blocked or something going on with evap system, maybe both. Did you try different gas pump?

Unable to put fuel in car

The tank is not venting properly. If it is a newer model you may have an EVAP control ,problem that controls tank pressures. You will have to have a scan test performed on the system to see what may be at fault

Unable to put gas in car due to the gas cap missing

What am I missing? Go to the station and put some gas in the tank. Drive to the auto parts store and buy a cap. This may trigger a check engine light as the computer senses a fuel system leak. Some autoparts stores can read check engine codes, and can reset the light.

I am smelling gas when the heater is on really bad and smell gas when the heater is off, checked Oxygen censor, checked all plugs for black soot, checked tail pipe for black soot and also had a half tank...

You have to have a leak somewhere. Put a large pc of cardboard under your car overnight. In the morning take notice of where the stain is on the cardboard.

Unable to put gas in my tank. gas will squirt out

It seems the breather pipe is blocked thus the squirt out of the gas.
This breather pipe should be somwhere around the filler neck, it's like a small by pass.It may need to be unblock.
Hope this helps!
