There is gasoline flow back onto the rear panel/bumper whenever I have gas pumped into my 1963 Ford Falcon Futura. How can this be prevented?

Does your Falcon have the original gas tank or has it been replaced? of course the '63 fills from the rear, this is a known issue depending on if the fuel tank is level, how are the rear springs on it, sagging? the fix or modification is to have a good fuel tank vent hose not just the single hose parallel to the fuel filler hose, plus get the vehicle level as possible.
