Recently, after i fill up with fuel, the vehicle stalls
and i have a hard time starting it while still at the

Probably has a stuck vapor purge valve. If it sticks open the fuel vapors when fueling flow directly into the engine making it hard to start. Do you have a check engine light illuminated on the dash?
