2013 gas filler issues

Hey all, wife's Explorer having issues while filling with gas. She has noticed, not every time, that when filling or putting $20 in that gas will leak from tank/filler area. She explains "gas pouring from under vehicle" Never happened while I have put gas in. Any ideas?

Something to look at.......if the vapor pump nozzle seal (cone) is not sealing correctly, gas can dribble into the vehicle fill/gas cap hole/area...there is a drain in their mostly for water.......

California still uses vapor recovery nozzles on their pumps? All the east coast states quit using them years ago since they don't work with most of the cap-less filler necks.

Yes, we still have them. Except diesel. That makes some sense since gas spills irregularly....
