STUPID FUEL TANK!

everytime i fill up my 97 it's such a pain in the azz! i can't just put the nozzle in and forget about it, i have to stand there and hold it just right so i doesn't click off... i know this has to do with the angle of the neck of my tank... any suggestions? it frustrates me so bad!

My 94 was like that, especially the rear tank. Really fun when filling at big truck pumps.
