Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Elantra
Does it do that at all stations & at the
same pump every time?
Check the filler tube neck for damage
Check the Evap System for OBD Codes
Smoke the Evap System & test the Vent Solenoid Valve

Stop and talk to a dealer to see if they have a TSB on this problem,
Dodge had this problem and they corrected it by installing new tanks.

Most vehicles have an anti-trickle valve that prevents you from continuously trickling gas in. On most vehicles, the valve is tripped when the hose is put into the inlet pipe and in all cases prevents you from overflowing the fuel onto the ground.
This anti-trickle valve has failed (likely) or is not being activated when the filler pipe is put in (less likely). Options: 1) You can remove the fuel filler neck and replace the valve (if available). Some assemblies are only sold in units (late 90's LR Disco 1's). 2) You can by-pass the valve (possibly activating a ck eng problem). 3) You can try to clean the valve and see if there's an obstruction there or in the tube leading from the valve to the tank assembly.

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.

SOURCE: When I go to fill
The problem is that your gas tank "pushes back" like it's full even when it isn't and makes the fuel valve click off. Tom and Ray on Car Talk covered this in a 2007 show and I pasted some of their response below:
"RAY: This condition is probably caused by either a blockage in your gasoline vapor recovery lines or a bad refueling control valve.
TOM: Gasoline vaporizes. How do we know that? Well, when gasoline is spilled, you can smell it, right? What you're smelling is vaporized gasoline.
RAY: And in the old days, when you filled up your tank, all the air inside the tank -- the air filled with gasoline vapors -- came whooshing out through the filler hole or through a vent at the top of the gas tank.
TOM: But then people in places like Los Angeles realized they couldn't see the person standing next to them due to smog. And since gasoline vapors contribute to smog, car makers were forced to install devices to capture those vapors.
RAY: So now each car has a vapor recovery unit that collects the gasoline vapors from the tank and then, the next time the car is started, sends them to the engine, where they're combusted. Your vapor recovery system isn't working, Lottie. One possibility is that one of the rubber hoses is blocked or collapsed."

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
