I've had the same issue on my 2008. What I've done is stopped putting the gas nozzle all the way into the tank. I just put the tip of the nozzle in past the little metal retaining ring inside the tank and pump slowly. That way, I get it filled almost all the way to the top before it shuts off and the fuel gauge reads all bars. BTW, pump the gas slowly. This way you get the most amount of fuel per dollar. While it's less of an issue in our small tanks, it really adds up on car fillups. The fuel pumps read and charge based on bulk volume-it doesn't matter whether it pumps air or fuel.
Yesterday, at my local Cycle Gear store, I saw a little foam ring that slips onto fuel nozzles that basically limits the amount the nozzle can go into the fuel tank so it's an issue people are addressing with a product. You can do it for free.
