Re: Issue filling fuel tank
It could definitely be the filler neck. Mine is in the shop for warranty work on the filler neck right now, and it had similar symptoms, except the cracks were lower on the neck so fuel would leak before the pump would kick off. They charge around $200 at goodyear for the job, so I'd say DIY if you can.
