Problem filling tank

I tried to do a search and couldnt find an answer other than 'finding the sweet spot' while pumping.
My issue is that when I go to fill the tank on my 95 Wrangler, it triggers the shut off on the pump. I have to pump it EXTREEMLY slow. I have tried to pull the nozzle out partway and it doesnt help.
If I pull the tank vent (or shorten it) will this help me??? I NEED to correct this problem!!! I almost got frostbite because it takes 10 minutes to fill the fricken tank!!! Thanks in advance...

Find a gas station that lets you park alittle nose down it helps believe me, I also tried putting tape over the breather hole with holes poked in it
