My car has 83000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It is possible that your fuel pump could be weak. When you fill your tank up with fuel it may cause the [fuel pump]https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/fuel-pump-replacement) to malfunction for a short period of time. I would reocmmend having your fuel pump and its wiring inspected for possible damages. I would also recommend having your fuel system checked for any restrictions that may exist such as a clogged fuel filter. The issue you are experiencing may be due to multiple factors all coming together to cause that issue. The best thing to do would be to have a complete fuel system inspection performed by a qualified professional. Consider YourMechanic as this inspection can be completed at your home or office.
