Question about Mazda MAZDA2
This sounds like the breather pipe is blocked, there ought to be a small pipe coming from the top of the tank that allows air to escape when you put in fuel, if this becomes blocked then you are fighting tank pressure.
Another thing to try is to turn the pump handle through a different angle, sometimes they fill better from a different angle, again, this is due to the air pressure changes as you pump in fuel.

SOURCE: Gas Gauge not reading correctly
The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.

i just went through that problem
Evap canister / close solenoid and air filter $211- 230.00 in parts
$675- $71.00 at dealships for this small 30 minute task
If no check engine light Evap canister and air filter - fixxes problem 100 %
note:you may be able to get by just replacing air filter- works
if have check engine- close solenoid and purge solenoid may need replace- you local autozone- like autozone will pull check codes for free
the how to:
Jack car up in rear - behind right rear tire - canister -canister close solenoid & air filter are located in a plastic box with metal strap and one bolt.
Unscrew bolt everything drops down the EVAP CANISTER is held to plastic box by wirer tie . Remove wire tie and solenoid connection.
There is a small metal wire clip the holds the solenoid electrical connection together with a flat screw driver pry up the wire clip , off is okay too , ....it will go back on.
Once you have done all that you have full access there are i believe from memory 3 rubber hoses with clips ......Mark hose connects very important mark the hoses way the going on evap canister with color tape .
Next, remove whole assembly- the solenoid and air filter will come with the evap canister.
Now that have the whole assembly move to your work bench
look to see how the soleniod hook up to the canister and the air filter - now, disconnect the hose to black solenoid and remove the air filter which hook to solenoid and solenoid at same to ......
Next seperate the the solenoid and air filter- you should be air to put your mouth on solenoid and blew air in one hole and out the other- this solenoid is noramlly open- if air dosen't go threw is stuck closed and must be replaced.
same with air filter- this air filter are know for get plugged and should be replaced every 30,000 miles.
Also note: over fill you gas tank , at fill up - can cause the Evap to get liquid gas inside which cause the chorcoal in the filter to swell up and plyug the system up.------ you should when fill up stop pump gas after the auto pump click off on normal work tank and not try to top off you tank.
note: check with your deal for exact wieghts
weigh the evap canister - six pound - replace it- new one is about 4-4.5 pounds - it is just best to replace .The evap holds gas fumes then send to engine so that dosn't vent to
All parts are dealships only -
This is easy fix and normal, for gas fill problems
canister Evap 161.00
canister close solenoid 43.00 may or may not be used
air filter 7.00
not used in this fix- check engine fix use these parts
sensor price ?
purge valve 39.00
canister close solenoid 43.00

I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent, It is not possible to fill the tank if you are letting the petrol pump run at full speed.Trying to fill up quickly it will only build up pressure and cut off. Next time you fill up just pull the petrol pump handle half way, it will take longer to fill but you wont get the blow back. Modern petrol pumps are getting quicker all the time.Hope this helps you.

I have a 2000 camry that I just fixed today. there is a vent tube and valve on the carbon canister that is located just behind the gas tank and above the cross member. this vent tube will get plugged up by ( of all things ) spiders, dirt daubers, and I even had a mouse pack the tube with dog food. Just remove the tube and the valve from the canister and clean them out. You will now be able to fill your gas tank again.

Is there a check engine light on? The first thing I would do is look at the vent solenoid. GM has had issues with these either sticking closed or the filter getting plugged.
Find the charcoal canister. It will be mounted near the fuel tank. There should be a large hose attached to it. On the other end of that is is the vent solenoid. Remove it and see if you can fill the tank.
If you can than see if you can blow through the vent solenoid. With it unplugged you should be able to blow through it easily. If you can't than it is broken and needs to be replaced.
I beleive GM has updated the part and routing for that year. You can check with the dealer to see if that is the case.
