    I do not think it is the charcoal filter. The main cause for this problem is a kinked vent tube inside the fuel filler neck. You can check this by using a flashlight to look inside the filler neck and see if the vent tube is pushed down. If so, you can pull it up with long needle nose pliers. If the refueling difficulty continues, verify that the 1/2" vapor tube from the fill vent valve on the gas tank to the air filter on the charcoal canister is completely free and clear. If you want to check the canister, it is behind the LR wheel. This is a rectangular box that has a metal strap holding it up and there are some lines running to it that look like they come from the gas tank. Good luck!
