Fuel Tank

Every time I go to fill up I fill to about a half tank. After the pump gets to about 10$ it shuts the pump off like my tank is full. I have to fight with it just to fill it up halfway. Anyone have any ideas?

The fill hose just beyond the filler hole loves to kink and constrict. Look at it inside the fender, and use a hose clamp to squeeze any kinks round, or replace it. Or the vent return to the nozzle area has a similar problem.

Added: Sorry - This is for my specialty platform the Trailblazer. I imagine every vehicle has similar fill hose construction.

Sometimes you can switch which pump you pull up to at the station and get perfectly normal fill-ups. If so, then the problem is with that pump handle's venturi setup. If not, then do as The Roadie suggests.
