When attempting to fill my gas tank, the gas pump fills for only seconds and cuts off as if the tank is full. It repeatedly does this making filling the tank take anenormous amount of time, even when the nozzle is squeezed to a minimal degree. Gas backs up in the fill tube shutting the nozzle off. This doesn't happen all the time but does happen. Just recently I went tried 3 pumps at one gas station and one at another station experiencing the same problem.

Sounds like a problem with evap system. The air in the tank has to go somewhere, if it cant, it will burp back up the fill pipe.
