I can't fill my gas tank!

I've tried about 4 times in the past week to fill up with gas, at as many gas stations. Each time, I get a good gallon in before the shutoff mechanism stops the pump. After that, no matter how gingerly I feather the gas pump, the shutoff mechanism kicks the pump off after just a few seconds. I've tried jamming the nozzle into the neck as far as it'll go, barely in the neck at all, and all points in between.

What can I do? It's infuriating, and slightly dangerous in the 2015 Snowpacolypse™ to be constantly driving with right around a quarter tank. Any tips from the intrepid warriors of DodgeIntrepid.net?

Your case is very interesting... Have you tried the goose neck of your filling area lately? There might be something that is blocking the flow.

I'm thinking/hoping it's just some frost/snow/ice. I'm hesitant to put any heat near the fuel inlet though, even if it would break up and melt any frost/snow/ice.

anti siphon ball is probably stuck. you'll need to take the filler neck off to check it.

I'm going to guess that HRMWRM is right with the problem being in the fill neck. I think its happening to sudden to be a problem further down the line.
