The past 3 times I filled my tank the car stalls or chokes while under normal driving. I have to pull over and let it sit running for about a min. or so. It just happened today around 2:00pm after filling a full tank. I religiously fill up at the 1/4 tank. Why does it do this? Also when I fill up the pump always cuts off at about a half tank. Is this becuase the fuel has to go between two tanks?

Out of curiosity what is the oil the oil pressure supposed to be at. When I pulled over after I filled up and the stuttering started the oil pressure was at 22psi. at idle. To me that sounds low.

The oil pressure at idle on a warm enging is normal. The stumbling is caused by a faulty fuel tank, it's been a much discussed issue. Search for it you will see many posts. Long story short unless you get it fixed just don't fill it all the way up. As soon as it starts to gurgle stop or you will have the same issue.

Thanks
So that oil pressure is normal. I never payed much attention to it since this most recent accurance. The oil light came on only for a split second when it first started to sputter. I checked the oil and it was in the "safe" zone on the dipstick

02/19/2014 UPDATE: Your 2005-2006 LX 19 gallon fuel tank has a lifetime warranty
Chrysler is extending warranties on fuel tanks in more than 153,000 older vehicles over complaints of engine stalling at low speeds, the government said Friday.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday it is ending its investigation into 153,817 2006 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Magnum vehicles equipped with 5.7L and 6.1L 8-cylinder HEMI engines after receiving nearly 300 reports that the engines may stall when the vehicle is stopped or traveling at low speeds.
The safety agency said the problem didn’t represent a serious risk to auto safety and said Chrysler’s solution was adequate.
NHTSA’s decision came after Chrysler and a supplier developed a solution to the problem and extended lifetime warranty coverage on the vehicles’ fuel tanks, NHTSA disclosed in a document posted Friday.
NHTSA said the multifunction control valve fuel shutoff float integrated into 19-gallon fuel tanks can swell in a stuck open position allowing an overfill condition.
“This condition causes fuel to enter into the purge line which may result in engine stall after refueling. Chrysler's investigation determined that the problem was related to dimensional changes/swelling of the float when exposed to fuels with high ethanol content,” NHTSA said. “Chrysler and its supplier, Stant, developed new fuel soak test requirements to address the condition and extended the warranty period on 19-gallon fuel tanks to lifetime coverage.”
NHTSA said there were 299 unique reports indicating that the fuel system allowed an overfill condition after refueling, and the predominant failure mode identified involved stalling when stopped or traveling at low speeds.
“The condition that is causing the majority of stalling incidents in the subject vehicles occurs at a stop or low speed and allows the vehicle to be restarted immediately. The condition represents a low risk to motor vehicle safety and is adequately addressed by Chrysler's extended warranty,” NHTSA said.

ok so a little digging...looks like covers 05 to 06 hemi or cars with 19 gal tank

here is the letter to go out and it states the Multifunction Control Valve is culprit produced by Stant.

and Lookup of the valve lead to this... which looks like it is part of the fuel pump basket... so maybe they are not going to replace the whole tank but just part of the fuel basket??
