When putting gas in car it keeps coming out of the filler tube when car need gas

Answers from the Automotive Experts

You may be having issues with the vapor recovery system. It is part of the EVAP system that is required by federal law to recycle gas fumes that can accumulate in the system. This is assuming the the fuel is coming up out the top of the filler neck. If it is leaking elsewhere, you may need to have the tube replaced. Seek help from a certified technician.
