5$ of gas in and it wouldnt take it om lik

Ive tried slow pumping but its basically

There could be a problem with the EVAP system, may be plugged up not allowing the air to escape when putting gas into the tank, or the gas tank is just full of gas, and can't put anymore into it. Best to have someone look at it so your sure. Need to get that gas gauge fixed.
