Gas Tank Fills EXTREAMLY slow

I purchased an aftermarket poly gas tank for my 86 CJ-7 after the OEM metal one started to get several pin holes rusting through. Ever since I put it in I can hardly fill the tank with gas. Everytime I try and fill it I have to barely squeeze the pump handle so gas just trickles out. I have pulled it out 2 times and nothing is blocking the lines to the tank and they are not pinched off. The only thing I can think is the neck of the inlet is thicker on the poly tank than on the metal tank, and its creating back flow that stops the pump. Anyone else have this problem and found a way to solve it? [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]
