Ok so I have used the search function and found nothing, but onto the good stuff. When I pump gas into the impala I can only get like $1.80 in b4 the vapor recovery on the pump kicks in and stops pumping. Why is this?? Any info would be great(btw im not losing any gas on the ground just have to pump really slow to keep from kicking the vapor recovery in or whatever it is.)

It's probably just the station itself.

I have the same problem at one station, and ONLY at that station.

No its almost every station I go to and it seems that the less gas already in the tank the faster it kicks the pump out. its weird.

Sometimes I think it's the style of pump splashes on the top of the fill line, and hits the vapor reclaim holes to trigger the stop. When that happens, I pull the gas pump about an inch from where it would rest, and then hold it there. Stops turrning off then until it's actually full. Never had any spray either.

No its not the station. My friends car did this. There's a sensor you have to replace but I cannot remember what its called. It happens a lot with ppl that travel in dusty conditions, at least that's what the mechanic said

On a side note, others have said it just works again eventually

That was happening to a car I had in the show about 2 weeks ago. We ended up using a air blower to push some air through the tube coming out of the tank. There was some build of debris inside one of the elbows of the tube. The customer never came back so i'm assuming that fixed it.

Couldn't blowing all that s**t into the gas tank just be bad in its own right? I want to fix it but not at the expense of my fuel pump.

Well, obviously you disconnect the hoses on the tank side and blow out.

Mazdas and Hondas have been recalled as some cars have had issues with yellow-sac spiders building homes and clogging gas tank vent tubes.
