Under the vehicle where the filler tube attaches to the side of the car, there is a breather tube that runs along side of it to the fuel tank. The purpose of that tube is to allow air to escape from the tank as fuel fills the tank. It is steel near the top of the filler tube and then attaches to a plastic tube. Check to make sure the tube is not damaged, bent, or plugged. If air can't escape from the tank when filling, the fuel has nowhere to go except out on to the side of the vehicle. (Really a pain to get gas).
Let me know what you find.
