Ok, Normally what happens with these is the purge control solenoid stick open.What it is. When you fill the car with fuel, the vapors go into the charcoal canister, then as you are driving down the road, the purge control solenoid opens and the fuel vapors are sucked into the intake.If this is sticking open, then when you fill the car, the vapors go into the engine, this causes the engine to be flooded. This is why the car doesn't like to start.If you fill it and then hold the gas pedal to the floor, it will start faster. This is how you clear a flooded engine.This is a very common problem with the Hyundai's, normally replacing the purge control solenoid will resolve the problem.Hope this helps!Please be sure to let me know if you need further assistance, if not, then please be sure to rate my answer.Thank You
