My friend's Cabrio is having the same problem as this guy:
http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=746489
When she tries to fill up the tank, the nozzle shut-off thing that prevents overfilling ALWAYS goes off. Ya can't do it at full blast, ya can't do it at the low notch on the handle, and you can just barely get gas into it by babying the gas nozzle as low as you can get it to go. TOTAL PITA.

I have no clue, other than maybe there is a foreign object in the fuel filler neck or in the tank somewhere.
Anyone else have this problem????
