Default 04 STI wont take fuel

Ok im wondering where I need to focus on to get this fixed, but every single gas station, my car will no longer allow the pump to run until its close to its full mark, matter of fact, I can barely get fuel pumping into the tank for 2 seconds before it clicks, so alot of fiddling with the pump handle in order to fill my car up!! Any idea of what I need to do? Im thinking either the sensor on intake manifold or whatever the sensor is above the charcoal canister

You might need a new charcoal canister. If you overfill the tank the excess fuel may saturate the canister. I have seen this on a Lexus we had in the shop. I replaced the canister and the customer has never had the problem since.

My 2005 STI did the same thing when I bought it about a year ago, I replaced the vapor canister and it solved the problem.
