Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

With in the last 2 months without any warrning during filling up at an service station the gas tank over flowed losing about 1 - 1 1/2 gallons of gas. This has only happen once within the last 8 months which I don't return to that service station. Now it happen at all service station I been too. The only correction that don't cost is not to fill the tank to the recomened level. But with the tank not being fill more fuel is being burn depending on vehicle uses.

When filling up with gas, if pump is allowed to cut off, it will spray gas out around the nozzle. The gas travels several feet covering vehicle and person filling tank.

When pumping gas, the gas splashes out when the gas tank fills up. I have tried different service stations, holding the gas nozzle or letting it shut off by itself with the same results. It is a big splash, enough that I have to stand back in order to not get it on my clothes and shoes. This has happened several times.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango, and have had it for a year and a half. The fuel overspray has been a problem since the beginning. If I leave it on the auto fill it will click off and puke almost a full quart of fuel on the ground. If I hand fill it at a slower rate it will puke only about a pint. This last time in a snowstorm it sprayed upward and not just out, had I not been wearing glasses I would have had fuel in the eyes. Potential for lost eyesight for the shorter people.

Fuel refueling causes an overflow condition of about 3 cups of fuel. It happened at about 50,000 miles and continues every fillup after that. Dealer says they can't fix it.

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) gas shoots out of my gas tank when I fill it up at the station spilling gas all over the side of the vehicle and usually on me too. It is a 2006 Dodge Durango, I believe there is a defective part or complete gas tank. I have placed a complaint with Chrysler/Dodge already. Complaint number I filed was [xxx]. this happens every time I fill up with gas!!!

2006 Dodge Durango at about 75,000 miles every time I fill up with gas, the pump shuts off then gas explodes out of the fill tube soaking me and everything around me. Don't know the diagnosis or cost of repairs. Feel this is a very serious safety problem with this model. Am aware that 2005 Durangos were recalled due to this problem.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango and when you fill the fuel tank, fuel gushes out of the pipe when the pump shuts off. This happens every time. It is the same thing that the 2005 Durangos were recalled for. I'd like mine recalled. 2005 recall NHTSA campaign number: 09V003000 and09V003000. The fuel tank filler tube inlet check valve may not fully close at the end of refueling. This could allow some fuel to escape from the vehicle through the filler neck at the end of refueling.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango and for the past few months every time I fill my gas tank and it even gets remotely close to full it sprays fuel at me everywhere and spills tons on the ground. I can't leave it for a second and it can't get full or it's horrible. I see that the 2005 Durango's had a big recall for the same exact incident but nothing for the 2006's. I called the dealership and I'm told that the whole fuel tank needs to be replaced. This is a huge safety issue do to the amount of gas that sprays out and nothing can really be done to stop it except me pay to replace it or to not fill my tank which is a pain. My vehicle is not that old for this to be happening. Why is 2005 covered but not 2006?

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango and every time I fill it up the tank overflows when the automatic nozzle shuts off. This is a safety problem especially when your standing in a pool of gasoline. When researching this problem on the web several 2006 Durango owners responded on the Dodge forum with the same problem. Apparently the 2005 Durango had the same problem, but was recalled and fixed. Dealers want to fix with a $600 to $700 new tank instead of admitting that it's really a design problem. You should look into this problem before someone gets blown up.

Gasoline spits out of fuel filler neck on 2006 Dodge hemi Durango whenever the tank is filled. Vehicle purchased new in June 2006. Fuel spillage issue began in approximately June 2009 at about 75,000 miles. I have cleaned all of the vents and filler tubes to no avail. Problem continues. Identical to failures recalled by campaigns 05V034000 and 09V003000 which claimed the problem had been resolved by a manufacturing change to the fuel inlet check valve.

Some fuel escapes from the vehicle through the filler neck of the fuel tank filler tube at the end of refueling. Maybe inlet check valve not fully close at the end of refueling. Just like 2005 recall but no recall issued on 2006. I've gotten sprayed with gas 6 times so far (about a pint each time) when filling tank.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango and when you fill the fuel tank, fuel gushes out of the pipe when the pump shuts off. Even when you pump it slowly near the end, this occurs. Sometimes it can almost be a half a gallon all over the ground and shoes and clothes.

I just purchased a 2006 Dodge Durango slt and everytime we fill the tank gas shoots out of the filler neck. You can hear it forcefully coming up the fill tube after the nozzle clicks off. If you slowly continue filling then you can top off the tank with another 5 gallons. This has happened several times and covered me with gas while standing over 3 feet away from the vehicle.

When fueling vehicle gas will discharge from the filler neck prior to valve closing on fuel filler hose. Occurs at multiple fill stations and is not specific to one fuel pump. Defect and complaints noted for 2005 model year appear to be present in 2006 model year. No damage or replacement has occurred to oem fuel system. Failure occurs with every fueling for the past six months. Failure involves environmental and safety impacts for discharge of raw fuel while fueling.

2006 Dodge Durango fuel discharges uncontrollably when re-fueling, attributed to check valve (defective) - possibly attributed to ethanol content in the fuel that has degregated the check valve? Dodge is aware of this issue and wants near 1,000 dollars to correct by replacing the entire fuel tank.
