    HELP: empty gas tank, but cant put any gas in tank

    I have a wierd problem. I am out of gas, but when I go to put gas in the tank it acts as if the tank is full and it starts over flowing and spitting the gas back at me.Has anyone had the same problem, or have a solution to the problem?
    I thought something might be blocking the gas flow, but nothing is blocking it.

    True that, on my dad's truck, you have to have the gas nozzle barley in at all otherwise it does not overflow, but the stupid pump shuts off every two seconds.
