Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. This is a fuel tank problem. The tank has a fuel vapor separator that is designed to keep raw fuel from entering the evaporative emission system lines. When this vapor separator fails and sticks open then raw fuel will enter the vapor lines and travel through the purge solenoid. Then the raw fuel gets drawn into the engine and floods it out after filling it up. But here is the thing: that separator is built into the fuel tank and is not replacable. The tank will need to be replaced. This would be covered under an emission warranty, but your vehicle may be out of that warranty. However send me the VIN number and current mileage and I will look it up.
