Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra

It sounds like your tank vent is pluged. If you look under the vehicle near your filler spout, you should see the filler spout hose leading to the tank and a smaller hose next to it. The smaller hose is the one that I am concerned with. See if it has some how collapsed with age. In a few rare cases I have seen the vent hose made inside of the filler hose ( ford ranger I belive) and you won't see that one. What happens is when you put the fuel in, the air must come out, so it burps for a better way of putting it and it forces fuel out with it. Putting the filler hose in farther and tighter won't help, but you could try to slow the rate down so as to give the air more time to escape.
