When filling the gas tank, the pump cuts off at 3/4 full. When I try to fill it all the way, it over flows onto the ground after the pump cuts off again. The dealer (team Chevrolet) says there is nothing wrong with the tank. They say it is the gas station I am using or I should just hold the gas nozzle myself until it is full.
