Hi there., I am Cam. Can you tell me your name please?

Along with this issue, do you happen to have a check engine light?

Jeff, no check engine

Ok Jeff, does it do this at more than one fuel station?

Still with me Jeff?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
at any station.
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 1 year ago.

OK so this means there may be an issue with the filler hose that runs from the neck to the tank, at a certain level its backing up in the hose and causing this. If not this then your EVAP canister may replugged up slightly and not allowing enough air flow back through the canister to offset the influx of fuel.
