I had the same problem until I figured out that I'd pushed the nozzle
too far into the filler neck. On my previous car (an old Opel) I'd
always pushed the nozzle as far in as possible, but with the Prius I
have to leave a few inches off or the cut-off valve would stop the
flow immediately.

Oh, and unfortunately I've had to test the car in minus 20 C
temperatures (that's -4 F) during the past week. She's run beatifully,
although she uses somewhat more fuel when it's colder.
