F250 GAS TANK FILL

2005 Ford F-250

Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Ford F250 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

Almost every time I fill with gas, the fuel will not fill smoothly, nozzle shuts off 15-20 times while filling. Sometimes, no problem at all. Choice of pumps makes no difference.
I pullled off rubber fill tube, no problems there. I can feel a movable baffle or something in the tank where the tube clamps, it seems to be on a spring.

Vent tube seems to be OK by feel.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a bad charcoal canister that could be stopped up causing the vapor not to vent.
