I have a Hyundai Sonata 2010 and am having problems with the gas pump. When I pump gas, it keeps shutting off and spewing gas out of the tank. Any advice?

Sounds like the vent to your gas tank is obstructed. Most car gas tanks are vented through the vapor canister which is usually in the engine bay. When it happened to me I just pulled the line and blew through it, but I'm a little crazy. Have you tried just pumping gas at the slowest speed?
