Question about Cars & Trucks
Nearly everything possible but can't get more than 1/4 full
With the number of Chinese made items we use the fine details are not always worked out well as you see, there is no science to this if it will not fill it is by a faulty design not anything you are doing or not doing.

SOURCE: Gas Gauge not reading correctly
The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.

The fill tube for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

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.

Do not insert the tip of nozzle all the way in when filling gas because if you insert too deep it triggers the nozzle sensor that gas is full and fill gas slowly when pressing nozzle handle.

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
