2000 Taurus stops gas pump too soon

Everytime I go to gas in my Taurus it pumps about 3 gallons and then the pump kicks off like the tank is full. After about 30 seconds I can start pumping again for agout 2-3 gallons and then it kicks off again and the process starts all over. Any idea what is causing this?

The vent tube might be plugged or obstructed in some fashion. Our car just stops about 2 gallons short of being full.

OK I'm not that car smart. Where do find the vent tube to check it?

The vent tube attaches to the main filler pipe just below the cap opening. If you take the fender liner off you will see a tube about 1". See if it's kinked in some fashion.
