2013 stalls after fillng with gas?

122,000 miles, and it will consistently start then stall after filling it up with fuel.
Once it does start, it seems to be fine. I have already put a new battery in, but I am 99 percent sure its not an electrical problem. I do not get a check engine light either.

Any ideas? Thanks

I wonder if it could be related to the purge solenoid problem. Does it seem to take a normal amount of fuel? Around 10-11.5 gallons when filled from empty.

Possible - you can NOT top these up, when the nozzle clicks off LEAVE IT ALONE!

Otherwise you can get overflow into the vapor canister, causing problems.

Stuck purge valve and then the fuel tank begins to cave in on itself.

I would think the problem was on the VENT side, not the PURGE side.

While that makes sense I'm thinking either end can go bad to do it since they both have to switch on and off at the correct times.

I for one do not know which end faults the most, sykozis could likely detail that a little more, or the TSB issued on the subject.

When the purge valve gets stuck open, the fuel tank remains under vacuum thus failing to bleed up pressure. If the vent valve was stuck open, you'd have a code for a Gross leak due to, well, a large leak....

P1450 is typically set when the fuel tank pressure fails to return to atmospheric pressure from a vacuum state. (also referred to as pressure bleed up)
