A​re you certain it is running out of the top of the filler spout and NOT out of the overflow or the hose that connects the filler spout to the tank?

I​s this a diesel powered unit? If you put diesel in a gasoline unit it might do this. I don't know how else this would happen unless you were on an incline when you filled it up and it was overfull and perhaps now you have the spout lower down due to the way it is sitting in the driveway and running out. Is that perhaps the case here?
