Please don't tell me you were fueling the car with the engine running. If you were you most likely flooded the fuel venting system with raw gas, the venting system will now have to be purged of the fuel and find out what was damaged. If the engine was not running but you had the key on too check the gauge while filling the same thing could have happened but not as severe as the venting system is still active with the key on.
