Eh, it might be as simple as the fuel filler hoses twisting a little. I personally don't floor the gas pump when filling up. Logically, any mechanical device will have a sweet spot, and the greatest variations will be at either end of it's range. I keep the pump in the center of it's range. It doesn't take that much longer to fill. Yeah, I know, supposedly your state's weights and measures dept has verified that the pump is putting out what it reads. However, I have put 22 gallons in an 18 gallon tank that was showing 1/4 left while on a road trip, so I have lost faith in the system.
