When attempting to fill the fuel tank it takes fuel very slowly and most of the time fuel will come back out of the fill tube getting on anyone filling the vehicle. This is a major safety issues due to this could cause a fire and fuel could cause skin irritation. This is also an environmental hazard due to fuel also gets on the ground the vehicle and anything else within 2 feet of the filler door of the vehicle. The fuel tank is not venting probably to let the fuel enter and air to escape which makes the fuel back up into the fill tube and when the air comes back out it sends the fuel out with it. This happens at every fill up and it can take up to 30 minutes to fill the vehicle and not get soaked in gas heaven forbid someone would light a match by you after filling the vehicle.
