Either find another pump/station as some pump at different rates or have a look at your vent tube off the filler pipe. It might be blocked.

I had similar problem - it's the overflow sensor. Replaced it ourselves - bought new one online for couple hundred. Have since learned to not "top off" when getting gas.
