Question about 1990 Toyota Camry
When we try to pump gas into the tank it splashes back up and makes the gas pump cut off like the tank is full, but it's not full--it's only got a quarter of a tank!
I have a 2000 camry that I just fixed today. there is a vent tube and valve on the carbon canister that is located just behind the gas tank and above the cross member. this vent tube will get plugged up by ( of all things ) spiders, dirt daubers, and I even had a mouse pack the tube with dog food. Just remove the tube and the valve from the canister and clean them out. You will now be able to fill your gas tank again.

This is a difficult problem to solve without more information some common problems are that this could be from a clogged or damaged vapor hose or possible deteriorated vapor relief valve on top of the tank. This hose allows air into the tank to stop vapor lock and overfilling or fuel tank.
Cheap temporary fix. Try different pumps at different staions. Also try not to squeeze the handle full throttle when filling. Try not to shove the nozzle all the way into the filler tube, try stopping and slowly easing the nozzle out of the car but, DO NOT do it quickly or **** the nozzle.
You may aso be able to put a fuel additive into the tank to try and clear everything up. I like zMax or full fuel induction service at a local garage. Of course I do this at home but an induction service requires certain equipment that is very expensive and not for the home user or non-professional as you can cause serious damage or personal injury.

Try taking the filler neck off and seeing if it's blocked up in anyway. If it's a new vehicle or new to you, Somebody could have tried siphoning gas out or a kid could have stuffed something down there. This is just speculation. Hope you get it sorted out.
