Happened to me when I first got my car. I read on other forums that it has to do with the angle of the pump sometimes and to turn the pump clockwise or counterclockwise. I actually use another tip I saw which is to not clip the auto-fill to the highest position (which would theoretically hold the handle highest and fill the gas up quickest). I just clip on the first notch to auto-fill my tank. It takes a little bit longer but I haven't had any problems since with the clip unhinging before my tank fills all the way up.
