After filling gas tank in truck in the process of turning out of the parking lot on to a busy road the truck stalled out and would not start. Since then I have learned that in order to prevent this from happening anytime after filling the truck in the first few miles after driving if O plan to cove to a stop I must change gears in to neutral and rev the engine above 1500 RPM to keep it from dying. I feel that this is a serious safety issue with the risk of being run in to if the truck stalls turning on top a road.

When filling gas tank after the gas pump handle clicks shut to stop flow from the hose the gas from the tank comes back through the fill line and pours out over the side of the truck, approximately 1 pint so it is quite a spill. This happens at every gas station, I use gasoline with 10% ethanol gas, and if I stop the gas flow from the hose manually it also happens.

Ram 1500 4WD 6-cyl

Every time I fill fuel tank the engine starts stalling for up to and hour after. It now if it has more than a half of a tank, it not only stalls, but pushes raw gasoline out of the evap canaster. The truck is not safe to drive. The problem appears to be the same problem that Chrysler has had with Chrysler 300. It is malfunctioning shut off float that is allowing fuel to enter purge line. The float is part of the fuel tank and can only be fixed by replacing the $750 fuel tank.
