I own a 2006 Jetta. It has close to 108,000 miles on it. I bought it used in April of this year. Normally, it starts fine and without any issues. However, when I go to a gas station and put gas in my car, it will not start again after. I have tried every gas station in my area and I have the same problem no matter where I go. It also does not matter what level my gas tank is at. I experience the same problem whether I have half a tank or am close to empty. What could be wrong with my car?

Check fuel pump pressure when you have the problem. It may be going bad.

What engine? New or old body style?

EVAP Purge solenoid (N80) stuck open comes to mind.

Intake manifold is "flooded" with gas vapor. Causing a flooded
condition that requires extended cranking of the engine for the
engine to start.
