MollyTony my best suggestion for you is to put Heet into your gas tank in the winter. It can help the gas lines from freezing and removes water from the lines. You can buy it at Walmart or AutoZone and it's in a bright yellow bottle.
As some one who lives in PA I understand the cold weather. Only put it into the gas tank every 3rd fill up or so.
Keep us posted on this.

Our Sorrento had a recall for a part in the fuel system that caused fuel to spit back at you, however it ended up being a fuel evaporation canister of some kind that was emissions... whatever it was clogged and fuel would literally shoot out at you if you tried to fill the tank too fast. I would start by trying to fill SLOWLY, and if you get a couple of gallons in then increase volume it still shoots out. That will be close to the same problem. Warranty? Ours was not covered after they addressed the re-call item but you never know. And my $ is on your check engine light is on because of the fuel issue.
Fat chance something froze and clogged your emissions-fuel system... IMO... anyway...
I've had mine kick the nozzle off just a few times. It then just stopped and fueled up normally after a couple more gentle tries. Part of the problem could possibly be too high of a fuel flow coming out of the nozzle combined with a narrow filler tube on the Soul. Todays fuel nozzles seem to be harder to modulate than the old ones were, so it takes a light touch when squeezing the handle to get the fuel flowing without it burping back. Another benefit (albeit small, given the Souls small tank) is that the gas pumps give a more honest amount of fuel at a low flow rate than they do at a high one. As I mentioned, since the Souls tank is so small, this wouldn't have as large an effect on the quantity as it did when I was pumping 200 or 300 gallons into the tanks on my 'Pete. Something else to try is to hold the fuel nozzle up so the fuel is flowing down the bottom of the filler neck and not hitting the top of it and splashing around in the tube, particularly on a high flow nozzle. I've been to stations where the pressure from the nozzle was so high that even on my Chevy p.u. with it's larger filler neck the fuel would still splash back and kick the nozzle off. What's happening is as the fuel is going into the tank, it's pushing air out of the tank and back out the filler neck, which in turn pushes any splashing fuel in the neck onto the filler nozzles fill sensor and kicking it off. The faster the fuel goes in, the faster the air blows back out, and the more likely it is to trip the nozzle.
