Default Camry won't start after filling with gas

My 2004 camry has issues when I fill with gas at the gas station. It will turn over but not start. If I can get it to turn over runs very bad, I basically have to feather the gas to keep it going.
After a while will run fine. Any ideas?

V6 or 4-cylinder engine?

Any reason to think the gas was bad?

has the fuel filter been replaced
maybe looking at a faulty fuel pump

even a faulty gas tank cap seal
does the cap wosh a bit as you undo it before filling

It is a V6, gas cap replaced. Have not replaced the filter, not sure why the filter would cause a problem when filling up?

toyomoho has mentioned bad fuel from a filling station

this car no start .... has happened straight after filling the tank

possible symptoms of bad gas . are something trapped in the cars petrol filter stopping fuel flow

could be
fine particles of rust from the ground tanks .. water from condensation.... or stale fuel.

if the filter checks out ...... then there will be another cause . and will need investigating

If you suspect bad gas, throw some dry gas in there first. It will take care of mild impurities.
