Default Gas Fill up problem

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 touring and when you take it to fill it up the gas pump cuts off as you try to fill it.I have to put in a little at a time until it fills up???

Has anyone come across this issue

Yes..Its a common issue on 300/magnum/Charger Models. Your vehicle uses what is called a "SADDLE" tank, which is actually 2 seperate Tanks in One housing. It uses a Syphon Method to fill both halves of the tank......But unfortunately, It doesnt syphon over Fast enough. The remedy is to ....WAIT IT OUT.....I know Its a poor excuse for a fix, but There is Nothing that can be done to remedy the situation.

Stay tuned, I'll try and get the service Bulletin for ya.

^^^What he said is correct.

The other option is to not fill as fast.
On the gas handle, there's usually three selections, slow, medium & fast
Most attendants will put the selector on three--or the fastest fill.
You can put the selector on medium or slow and it should be fine. It will just take a little longer to fill up

Lift the back of the gas pump gun up instead of letting it rest on its own. I have no issues when I do this.
