I own a 1997 Plymouth neon and i work part time at a gas station. Normally the neons don't splash back, but for lots of vehicles it is normal. for instance the new Chrysler sebrings they splash back something fierce, that is normal. it all has to do with the way the line running to the tank and the tank are set up.

My 95 neon splashes back too when the tank is low or near empty. I jus figure its cuz all that gas rushing into an empty tank all at once causes a big wave that comes back at ya. Pump it slow to begin with and it wont splash.
