Filling gas tank problems

I have an 06 A4 and am having problems pumping gas into it. I can't put the gas pump on the first notch without it kicking off like its full. I have to stand there and hold the handle and pump very slowly to fill the tank. Whats the problem? Any ideas? I read somewhere about the evaporation canister might be bad.

Cant Fill Gas Tank

I am having the same trouble... Pressure builds up and if you let it out it spurts gasoline all over out the side of the car. I also tried to do some research and heard that it could be the fuel tank venting system failing...? I do not even know where that is or how to replace it.

I also would be very appreciative of any help anyone can provide on this, Thank you.

I had a simuliar issue where we could not get te car full of gas... Took it in and it was sending unit or maybe even the fuel pump that had to be replaced. I'm also thinking it may have been a recall.

Actually, I think they just fixed it twice and the second time was warranty not recall.

For what it's worth...
