8 Gal fuel tank spillage

I have a 1930 Model A with two 8 gal fuel tanks and electronic cutover switch. The necks to the tanks bend at almost 90 degrees before the tank. I cannot dispense more than 2/10 ths of a gallon of fuel before the fuel 'spits' back at me and causes a spillage. I understand that the reason is that there does not appear to be anywhere for the displaced air from the tank to go. Does anyone have a solution other than dispense the fuel as slowly as possible? Thank you. (First time posting to the forum!)
