filling gas slow...too cold

1) the large dia fill hose got kinked somehow when installing the tank
2) or the smaller dia. top "tank vent" hose that connects to the steel portion of the fill hose system, it maybe kinked. This hose lets air out of the tank as gas goes in and allows it to "vent" through the steel connection portion. This will cause gas to back up and trip the nozzle.
Hope this helps solve the riddle

The flapper thing in the fill tube can be seen, and operated with your finger - it's right near the opening, and if you can insert the nozzle all the way, then it's working.....

There's some tape over the tubes on the replacement tank, and you didn't take it off.
Just a thought.
