When you add fuel air needs to escape from the tank. To do this there is a vent tube that usually runs alongside the filler pipe. I think either the filler pipe is kinked or the vent tube is blocked.
I would call a Ford dealer service department or a good independent repair shop, describe what is happening and ask if they have heard of it before.
Now that you mentioned it could probably be clogged, because my fuel compartment cap locking machenisim (the one attached to the car's body) is broken. With that said, the filler pipe DOES get exposed to dirt, snow, leafs and even "spider webs". Thanks! I'll pass on forcing compressed air. And I'll shall contact my local Ford dealer service department, and get a second opinion from my mechanic.
