2002 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I imported a Ford Explorer from US four years ago. I live in Nigeria and the car has been maintained by a ford dealership in Nigeria. Recently, I was having problem with poor accelerationand complained to the my Ford dealersip and they had they had the injector cleaned. They also dropped the tank to clean the nozzle. Since receiving the car back, I've had problems with refuelling. Each time I try to refuel, petrol keeps coming back out as if I already have a full tank. Have you guys come across this type of problem? Please help!

First I have never heard of removing the tank to clean a nozzle there isn't one in the tank. As for you problem now I would say that the vent tube is kinked or blocked. See there is two hoses from the filler neck to the tank one is large and for the fuel to go through the other is smaller and for air to come out so the tank will fill correctly. I would have them check to make sure they didn't kink it or something.
