Default Can't fill up gas tank all the way

I've been having this problem off and on all summer. There is a gas station near me that I always go to because it has 93 octane, however for some reason I'm not always able to fill up my tank. I usually put in about 10.5 gallons when I'm almost on E, but when this happens I can only put in 9-9.5. At that point the pump will click off and I can't even over-pump very far. I can come back later to the same place and finish filling my tank after driving around a little bit. Has anyone ever had this problem? Is it the gas station or is there something wrong with my car?

Thanks

That explains one of my fill-ups with the CRX.

The counter on the pump read 12.9 gallons when I filled it up - my tank is 11.2 gallons.

yeah, if a pump clicks off on me, like twice I will hang it up and go to a gas station that does maintenance on their pumps.

Click the image to open in full size. it happens at any gas station i goto so i know its not just the pump. HELP ME!

The teg has a 13.1 gallon tank. Usually when my fuel light goes on, I have ~3 gallons left in the tank since I usually can pump in only 10-10.5 gallons. The light shouldn't go on if you can only put in 7-8 gallons. I think your fuel meter or whatever it is that sense fuel levels in the tank is not working right.

how does the car know when the fuel tank is getting low? is there a little floatie thing in the gas tank? something i can replace for cheap? the previous owner smacked the gas tank and it has a big dent in it but it has never done this before until a few weeks ago. i just dont wanna be stuck on the side of the road or pay some ungodly amount of money for a new gas tank.
