Filling fuel tank

When refueling my 2002 wrangler, the pump shuts off when the tank is appx 3/4 full. More fuel can be added but very slow. Any ideas on what's causing this???

Happens to all jeeps, what i do is pull the pump out halfway and keep going. That normaly helps a bit. Then i just pour slowly till it overflows so i know it's full haha. You're just gonna have to get used to it

Same thing happens to me sometimes. You just gotta know about how big your tank is, and have the pump out a little. If it's all the way in it stops on me all the time, not even at 3/4s but earlier.

I have 2006 TJ, and I am forced to use the slow setting when it starts approaching full. If not, overflows happen all the time. If I stay at low, no overflow. And it will fill up full.
