    Your vent tube is probably kinked up. Inside the refueling tube there is a smaller vennt tube that evacuates the vapors into the charcoal canister so the can be recycled and burnt in the engine. If that tube get kinked up, the tank can't vent and this interrupts the flow of gasoline when you fill up. If you can hold the flap open in the fill up tube, you can shine a flashlight down the tube and see if the smaller vent tube inside it has been pushed down. If so, you can try and pull the tube straight with a pair of extra long needle nose pliers. Be careful not to crush the vent tube. Any good mechanic should be able to do this for you pretty easily if you are concerned about doing it yourself. Good luck!
