The big hose that connects the gas tank to your car can handle gas about as fast as the pump will push it in. when there is back pressure in the tank it slows down the flow in this big tube which is the same as when it is full.
There is a vent on the gas tank that comes up nearly all the way to the opening you put your gas in which allows your tank to breathe propperly while filling it. (When it is working propperly.)
Either there is some contamination in this small vent tube, or (more likely) the tube is kinked or squoze shut, not allowing the tank to breathe.
Check to see if this is the case. If you havent got time to fix it right away then try putting the filler nozzle in at an angle so that the pump handle is closer to the rear, or front of the car while filling, and only pump with the handle pulled to the first click.

Testimonial: "Sounds like a likely solution that I hadn't thought about. We'll give it a try! Thanks for the fast response!"
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

pull the nozle out to the edge to fill up the tank. if the problem is with the car then it is because there is a blockage in an air vent around the filler hose. usually it costs more to fix than its worth.

I know you probably won't like my answer, but seeing as I am a service tech for gas stations, the nozzle has a safety feature which shuts/kicks off when gas splashes back into the nozzle, thus keeping the gas from running over when the car is unattended and nozzle is locked. You can try pulling the nozzle back til it is barely in the tank or try a different gas station as some nozzles are different. As it is the shape of the fill tube on your vehicle. Hope this helped Tim
