i figured something out really quickly after getting my car....i cant pump fuel at full force from the pump, i have to hold it to about half the pressure it can do, otherwise the fuel backs up in my filler neck and just gushes out the tank...you shouldve witnessed the scene i made the first time it happened, not one of my finer moments....but since then ive found that i can listen to the flow of the fuel when its pumping and kind of gauge when its close to full, then i slow it wayyy down...might be a good practice to avoid a spill from a bad shutoff regulator

It sounds like your tank vent isn't clear, at normal speed diesel pumps I usually go full speed until it kicks off. So far no problems.
