Question about Porsche 911
I had this same problem with my Land Rover Discovery. The gas pump shuts off when gas covers a small tube in the tip of the pump handle which triggers the shut off mechanism. If the gas is extra foamy one day it can trigger this mechanism. With my Land Rover, there was a bend in the filler hose just past where the tube would sit when I was filling it up with gas. This would cause some splashing near the tip of the pump handle shutting off the pump. I was able to pull the pump tip out a little bit so that it wasn't inserted all the way into the filler, that way it wasn't as close to the bend in the hose and the splashing didn't affect the shut off mechanism. When I did this I could walk away and let the pump fill the tank all the way. This could be the same problem you're having. Try pulling the handle out a little bit and see if that helps.
