It's super annoying. The first time, I think I just pumped 5 seconds of gas at a time. Then second time, I just gave up and moved to another pump.
I've been to 4 or 5 different pumps since they replaced the canister. The first one was fine, the next two or three were troublesome and then today it was fine.

Maybe your car just has high standards in whom it chooses to let pump it

Finally got all the rights parts together (hopefully) and heading to DrewD's place in SC tomorrow to install M3 suspension... if you feel like swinging by (and have time) you could pump me, oh um, I meant take a look at the lights...

My friend has a 2002 (model, not year) and says they're the worst to fill. Apparently the angle of the filler pipe causes gas to not want to flow into the tank and it ends up spewing out all over the paint
