I am wondering if you have any idea what is going on with the gas pump at the station that keeps turning off

It is more likely your car than the pump, although the pump nozzle does have a vapor recovery that if it gets liquid gas i it that will happen. Try another pump, or station. If it still does it, your EVAP vent is clogged, canister saturated and not being purged, something like that in the EVAP Is the Check Engine Light on in your car?

Ford has had problems in the past with the fuel not properly venting and in turn the gas pump shuts off. Talk to your local Ford dealer, there might be a TSB or fix for your issue. My '05 did the same thing.

Try filling up at a slower rate. I found that some pumps pump so fast that the fuel bubbles up into the neck of the fuel tank and shuts the pump temporarily.

I am having the same problem with my 2011 Escape for the past several weeks. While filling it up from low/empty, it will turn off after 10 seconds or so of pumping. This has happened at several different stations. While at the Ford dealer for a power steering recall, they said it's not a recall issue.

We have two Ford hybrid Escapes and both have the same problem. We had the dealer repair my wife's Escape (problem with vapor recovery system, i believe) at a not insignificant price. I will just fill the other one very s-l-o-w-l-y. I am ot happy about the problem or the resolution!
