well im pretty sure the spilling is not caused by overfilling. The gas spills before the tank is full, in fact today I filled 10 gallons after the gas began to spill. Ive tried turning the gas handle 30 degrees but doesnt really help. I think i need to try to 180 degree turn next time. Could there by anything wrong with the car?... or is it the gas pump?
