Default Pressure Line Question

I have had some recent problems with my pit guy putting too much fuel in to the tank, up into the neck, causing the engine to die. Is there anything you can do to the fuel line system to prevent this or lessen the impact?

GET FUEL GUN. gun makes sure you dont overfill the tank leading to loosing the pressure

sometimes putting a fuel filter in the pressure line will help. Might be worth a try.
