Problems with filling up gas

I've had this problem and no matter where I took my 2000 Hyundai Accent, the fuel would click off on max setting. I took it to a shop and told me to remove the lines on either side of the fuel intake. I removed the one on the right and it filled like new. Replaced the line and the fill went to a crawl again. I removed it again and it filled like new again. So I kept that line off, but wonder if something on the fuel neck is blocking ventilation out. How would I go test this theory?

As you look at the fill neck, remove the right most vent line. If it fills like normal, that's the line with trouble at the neck. Not sure about the other line though.

I wish I knew how to figure out what is causing my 00 Accent to keep clicking off when pumping fuel into it. Replaced the charcoal canister, but it still fills slowly and someone saw the filler neck is cracked. It had a nice puddle for the car sitting from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm. How easy is it to replace the filler neck and do I have to drop the tank?

Any idea where the fuel filter is, if it has one?

Default Charcoal canister was leaking pellets

I had the same issue of the gas nozzle shutting off frequently when pumping gas in one of my three Elantras. I pulled the charcoal canister and, like others have reported, found charcoal pellets clogging the larger evap hose. Looking into the canister through the openings for the hoses I could see that remnants of a foam filter that was falling apart and letting the pellets migrate into the hoses and clog them. Once I removed the wayward pellets, the fix was simple - I found some light foam that passed air easily and stuffed it in the canister openings to keep the pellets contained in the canister. Now the car gasses up fine.
