I have owned the car since new, have 40k miles on it, and it just started on this fillup. Does a check valve/purge valve/rollover valve go bad suddenly? Since nothing is vented to atmosphere, I don't see how a dirt dobber or other foreign body can plug it. Any ideas?

    No more than any modern emission system. The unfortunate part with these cars is the fuel tank vent valve is attached directly to the tank, rather than being in the filler pipe like other cars. You pretty much have to drop the tank to do anything. But hey, at least it's a small tank! Dropping the 38 gallon fuel tank on my Ford F350 pickup is much more of a chore.

    FIXED IT! Short version: I whacked the top of the rollover valve with a screwdriver handle! It is accessed under the rear seat, and had somehow tripped to block any escaping gas or liquid.

    Longer version: I removed the carbon canister and began troubleshooting. The canister was flowing well, so I eliminated that variable. Attached a Mityvac to the outlet hoses and applied vacuum. The main larger hose was blocked and would not flow air. I removed the hose from the rollover valve, accessed under the seat, and applied vacuum. Whacked the valve and heard it pop open! Buttoned everything up and went to the station and filled up without the pump clicking off! Victory! If it happens again, at least I know where the problem is...

    bglz42 can you share which part is considered the "rollover valve" in the diagram shared by KellyfromVA. I'm guessing it's #4, #5, or #7 (although #7 isn't really a valve). Also, do you think it was necessary to have the vacuum applied while whacking it?

    I whacked the top of 5. And no, the vacuum was just for test to see if it would flow air...

    Remove the rear seat bench (2-16mm bolts), remove 4-Phillips screws for sending unit cover. Use the screw driver handle to tap the top of the valve where hoses connect to tank. It worked to clear the stuck roll over valve and restored my ability to fuel the tank normally for the first time in a year. Didnt spend a dime and I hope it stays fixed.

    A local club member has a late 2012 & filling has been an issue for a long while.
    When filling, he could add a neckfull at a time - wait 20 seconds; until the tank is full.
    I can confirm that tapping the roll-over valve (top of the fuel tank) worked for his car!
    On the 4th tap, there was a click & that was the valve releasing. He can now fill the tank normally.
    Thank you for this information.
