Smaller vent hose next to the large fill hose could be kinked or plugged as well as the filler hose.

Are you in CA? I have the same problem on my fleetside because the hole is kind of aimed down instead of all these newer cars that are aimed up so the nozzle doesn't want to stay on so I gotta hold it pretty firm and gas sill sometimes comes out.  Theres a lot of stuff on the nozzles to keep the gas fumes from coming out so the metal part is shorter

Figured out the problem, when I changed the fuel tank filler neck I put the metal piece that attaches to the side upside down , it has a slight tilt and I had it pointing up , Iím such a dummy
