I would check to see if your fuel filler neck has a kink in it, if not your vent valve is probably stuck. What you might try in the meantime is try turned the fuel nozzle on different angles or even float it off the filler neck just a slight bit. Other than that you're stuck using Jerry cans until you can track down the issue
