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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Gas spews out of the gas tank filler hole before topping off. This happens at every gas station. The automatic shut off on the gas pumps do not detect that the tank is nearing full. Manually filling very slowly still causes gas to gush back out of the filler hole. Service at Dodge dealership said it might be the tank breather, but the did not repair.

Starting about 6 weeks ago, everytime we fillup the tank it overflows at the end of the process. The overflow spews gasoline all over the side of the car and on the pavement creating a safety and environmental hazard. In some cases, either my wife or I received splash impact on our hands and clothes.

At the end of refueling my 2006 Durango gasoline just comes pouring out. It goes out all over my Durango and me. Every single time. The dealer wants to charge me about $800 to replace the tank.

The fuel tank on my Dodge Durango spews gas out onto the vehicle and pavement at the end of filling up the gas tank. This began occurring about 3 months ago and happens every time I fill up. This is an extremely dangerous situation. The gas could ignite, plus it is an environmental hazard. My local Dodge dealership (roger williams Dodge) is refusing to pay for the repair. After researching this problem, I find this is a widespread issue with Durangos. I should not have to pay for something that is obviously a factory defect. I want the gas tank replaced immediately on my vehicle.

When I fill up my gas tank, the gas does not shut off, but overflows spewing gasoline out all over the place. The last two times I filled up, there was just a small amount which overflowed. Today I was doused with gasoline from my waist to my ankles.

Durango

  • 35,000 miles
For the last 3 months, every time I fill up my gas tank, when I remove the nozzle from the tank gasoline overflows on the side of my vehicle and the ground. At first, I thought it must be a problem with the pump at the gas station, but I reported it to my dealer during my last oil change, and he said my gank tank needed to be replaced.

I bought my Durango over a year and a half ago. This was in the spring when winter rolled around and cooler months all fuel pumps would over fill the fuel tank. Problem went away in the spring then this fall/winter the problem came back again. It acts as if the fuel vapor recovery system is becoming restricted with the cooler temperatures. Causing fuel to be burped out after the pump shuts off.

Durango

When my fuel tank is empty and I refill the tank, after the pump clicks off gas pours out of the tank. This has been happening for about 7 weeks. Also sometimes when starting the vehicle it doesn't start but continues to turn itself over and over even after the key is shut off. This happens sporadically and Dodge refuses to fix either one although the vehicle is still under warranty, because it cannot be duplicated at the shop.
