Hello calafrmc.

When this happens it is usually the canister purge solenoid stuck open.
This solenoid/valve is normally closed.
It only opens when the vehicle is on the road to open and allow the vapors stored in the carbon canister to be burned in the engine.
If it is stuck open it allows the vapors when you are filling to enter the engine and flood it out with the vapor.
This valve will need to be replaced. It is under the hood but I will need to know which engine is in your Envoy and if it is 2 or 4 wheel drive.
Leave this information to me in a comment here and I will try to find you a location Diagram.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2003 Chevy Impala won't start after refueling

There is a couple of problems with Impala's. Crank relay ($15) is unreliable. Lift hood it's on the passenger side under plastic panel and just plugs in. There are some issues with the pass code. Rather than take to a dealer, first place key in ignition and turn to the on position and wait 10 minutes. Often the pass code corrects. There are some issues with the ignition switch in particular with a heavy set of keys. Try blowing some compressed air into the keyhole and using just the ignition key by itself.
