Default Won't start after getting gas

The last 3 times I've gotten gas my Accent won't start, after cranking the engine a bunch of times I finally stepped on the gas while cranking and then it comes to life. Only while at the actual gas station do I have this problem, it turns on fine the rest of the time. My check engine light is on, and it's going in tomorrow but I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem? The Hyundai service guy didn't have ideas on what it might be over the phone.

Thanks.

I haven't had this problem, I can name a ton of things that may cause it, but can't really help. Let us know what the shop says.

It was a bad purge valve. It was stuck open and that allowed vapors from the tank to be forced into the intake manifold during fill-up.

Ya know, it's amazing how such little stupid things can really screw up these cars. However, just chaulk up this one to experience.
Thanks for the reply and letting us know.

Glad you got it fixed.
Mine used to do some missing and sputtering after filling with gas but I was in the habit of topping it right to the top or at least to an even dollar.
I was told to never do that but to stop filling as soon as the automatic shut off at the pump stopped the flow.
I have never had a problem that way since and it gives me extra coffee money change in my pocket.
W.Y.
