I can't put fuel in my clio!?

Hi all!

Firstly, what an amazing site - so helpful. My problem is a bit of a strange one!! I normally fill up my car every week to keep it topped up (rather than let it run to empty) this has worked fine for me in the past!

So.... I've been driving around for about 10 days or so and thought i'd top my diesel up (gauge showing 3/4 of a tank - i don't do that many miles). I pulled up at the pumps, as you do! Start fuelling, then it clicked off, so i started again, then it clicked off again... and so on! It was PAINFULLY slow filling up! I got to about 4/5 litres then I gave up and got ****ed off. A few hours later I tried a different petrol station - same problem! It's like pouring a can of coke into a glass incorrectly, waiting for the bubbles to settle before putting some more in? Never had this before? I know my car normally takes about 20 litres from 3/4 of a tank! Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance :-)
