what do you think?

I didn't want to ambush GEO thread but I too bought a code reader today 49.99 Sears. I bought a 2003 tj used, first fill up light comes on. Take to auto zone> small and large evap leak. Buy after market gas cap. No Help. Noticed aftermarket cap wiggles way to much. Take and have smoke test done. Smoke rolling out of rear pass side. Mechanic tightens fitting erases code. 3 days later I fill up again. Guess what engine light comes on again. I buy mopar gas cap and within week the engine light goes off by itself. I fill up again and the light comes back on. I 've used the same gas station and pump each time and I can't pull the gas lever on the pump to it fullest point to fill up fast because it will stop pumping. I have to squeeze level at half or I can't get any gas in. Could this be my problem? I was thinking of changing gas stations to see if I have the same problem getting gas into the tank. I tighten the cap! ANY THOUGHTS?

Check the vent tube and all lines to charcoal canister. The tank is not venting enough, that's why you can't fill it fast. The canister also might be full of gas.
