Default Car doesn't start after getting gas!

Hey i have a 2006 saturn ion redline 5 speed manual. Everytime i fill up gas the car doesn't start.. If it does start it dies right away unless i rev it.. The way i bypass this is to pump gas with the car on. What could the problem be? I heard purge valve?

Any codes,lights, or other engine related poor performance that may shed more light on the issue?

So if understood correctly if you successfully get it started once after refueling the issue doesn't repeat? You could drive it across the street, start and stop it for a minute or 12 hours and it'll behave normally? (You don't Rev or "prime" the Engine for Startup? "Just to be safe".)

Fuel Filter ever been changed? At what point do you usually fuel up? 1/2,1/4,E,Low Fuel,Fumes, or Whenever you have a good price or Convenience? Do you regularly use a Top Tier Detergent Standard Gasoline or other Name Brand (Many have joined the Top Tier Standard)? No-Name? Combination of both? Have you used any Fuel System Cleaner and/or HEET to help clear the tank of unwanted contaminants?

Any rusted/leaking fuel line repairs in the near future? (Behind the Driver's Side Rear Tire is a known bad spot for fuel line rusting.)

Only after getting gas it does this, after i turn it off, i can start it right back up just fine. I dont get poor engine performance. Im not sure if the fuel filters been changed ive had the car for only half a year.. I usually fill up when its close to E with only name brand premium gas like chevron, shell, arco. And no i never used any cleaners.. And i live in california i don't think rust would be a problem

So what happens if you performed a "fake" fuel stop? Going through the motions of filling your tank... without the filling part? So Both "cold" (first in the morning or later at night once its cooled down) or "hot". Basically checking to see if the Fuel Cap Seal is a problem to fix...

Gas cap seal issue is common as the car ages, and your symptoms definitely match. Might just need to replace the cap. 20 bucks or so.
