Question about Cars & Trucks
You may consider that after letting it go completely low, that dirt inside has fallen and clogging the fuel pump. May need to remove pump and clean inside of tank.

I would suggest it may be a dirty or clogged fuel filter or gas tank sending unit inside the gas tank. Try replacing the fuel filter first, if that does not work, you may need to pull the gas tank and clean it. God bless your efforts.

SOURCE: filling gas tank
There is a vent pipe that runs along the fill pipe, they get kinked and cause this concern (tank can't vent air when filling), the only fix is to replace the fill pipe assembly.

SOURCE: car will not accept gas
try pulling back a little on the nozzle, the tank has an anti rolloverball in the pipe and this sometimes cause it to shut off when the nozzle is stuck all the way into the filler pipe

Tell me when you fill up how far do you go before it stops,,then how far does it go the second time and the 3rd time ,,Do the times get longer each time,, if so then your problem isent a big deal.
The problem you might have is that the return fuel pipe from the engine returning fuel back in to the tank,, and the TANK breather pipe which has to let air in as you cannot take fuel out and not let air back in ,,so it causes a vacuum in the tank... So check the breather before any thing else .. OR dont fill it up any more than the first click of the pumps .
Let me know how you get on Ron
