Every time I go to pump gas in my 2000 Hyundai Tiburon, it will not take but small amounts at a time. The first thrust will accept around $1 then only in $.20-$.40 increments after that (and that's after waiting about 20 seconds between pumps). If I try to thrust more gas in it after the handle pops, any extra amount will flow out onto the ground. Please note that my car is always on or near empty when this occurs. This is a serious problem as it prevents me from being able to drive long distances, which prevents me from being able to see my daughter.

After researching the problem online and talking to several mechanics, I was fairly certain the problem would be the Charcoal Cannister. However, today I completely disconnected the incoming and outgoing lines from the charcoal cannister (completely disconnected it from the gas fume exhaust system) but this did not help or hurt the problem either way. I've tried opening up the small line that runs beside the main fuel intake line (seems like a fume exhaust line leading to the head where the gas nozzle is inserted) towards the head but that did not help either.

After removing those lines, I contacted the dealer's mechanics and they seemed perplexed by this and kept saying that it is my charcoal cannister. I disagree but I do not know what option would be next. Please relay any insight that you would have into fixing this problem...

This is an old thread. Sometimes better to start your own??
As for fueling, gasoline goes in and air has to come out
If evap emission system is messed up then it can cause this issue.
