Problems Refueling

It's been happening on and off for a couple months now.. I go to stop off at a gas station and start pumping the gas and my truck acts like it is full! It clicks off and overflows. I stop wait 10 seconds and begin to refuel and it's fine for 10 seconds and does it again! Has anyone ever had this problem?

'Scuse me if this is a stupid question, but is this happening at more than one gas station? I've seen this happen--but it was associated with a few pumps at a local station.

Pull the nozzle out of the tank a bit...the sensor feels a backsplash and stops it.

Happened all the time with my Intrepid.

Plugged vent tube? Won't let the air escape and its causing the fill tube to fill up or splash back shutting down the pump nozzle. Just a guess
