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.

Every time when filling the fuel tank to full, by hand or automatic shutoff, the gasoline sprays out and overflows onto the car, fuel nozzle, and ground when full. This occurs regardless of the speed of filling the tank.

I have filled up my vehicle on multiple occasions since I have purchased this vehicle used. Every time I fill it up the gas tank bubbles and is shoots a decent amount of gas out of the tank onto the ground and down the side of my car. This causes my car to smell like gasoline and leaves a puddle of approx 1 cup of gas on the ground. At first I thought it was a particular gas stations nozzle, but after going to multiple different stations, I have encountered the same problem. I have not contacted Dodge about this problem, but I will be soon. I know there currently is no recall for this, but there should be, this is an extreme safety hazard to have gas flying out of the gas tank.

Durango 8-cyl

  • 80,009 miles
During fueling operations the vehicles fuel tank was almost full which triggered the fuel pump to shut off, and then immediately fuel began rushing out of the fueling nozzle of the vehicle getting on the side of the vehicle, my hand, foot and the ground. This has happened more than 60 times since owning the vehicle in 2006, and now happens every time I fill the tank to full. There was a similar problem with the 2005 Durango that justified a recall, and the same problem exists with the 2006, although there has been no recall. I hope that it doesn't take a major incident, fire or death before Chrysler takes this seriously and does the right tyhing by repairing the bad valve in these tanks.

While re-fueling the vehicle after the pump auto shut off clicks off about a second or two later fuel comes spewing out under pressure, spilling fuel all over the quarter panel and bumper, and onto the ground, spilling approximately a gallon or so. It appears there are several issues on this from searching online, I just purchased this vehicle used about 3 months ago.

Gas no longer automatically shuts off. Gas spills out everytime I refuel. I have to guess when I should stop the fueling but sometimes I miscalculated and it all over my shoes and the ground. Fire hazard in the wait.

When filling gas tank after nozzle clicks off within second a gush of fuel shoots out of tank. We are only owner of vehicle and this has happened for years. We had fuel tank replaced once and it continues to happen and is getting really bad again. Today so much fuel shot out that if someone was standing there it would of soaked them. It was so obvious and so much that the other people at the station saw it and were in disbelief. This is getting to be real dangerous.

While filling up my vehicle with fuel, the vehicle topped off and shut off the fuel nozzle, then fuel came rushing out of the vehicle's filler tube onto the vehicle, my hand and leg, and the ground. This is an ongoing mishap with this vehicle and other 2006 Durango's as indicated by reviewing historical events on this website. It should not take a major mishap or fire to get the appropriate attention this deserves, . Chrysler refuses to acknowledge there is an issue, however the 2005 Durango was recalled for the same exact problem.

The vehicle spews gas once fueling begins. It overflows the gas tanks and a lot of fuel spills on the ground. This is an ongoing issue with every refuel of the vehicle which began in October 2010.

While refueling my 2006 Dodge Durango limited at the aafes gas station on randolph afb, fuel came spewing out of the refuel nozzle once the pump cut off and the tank was full this has happened over 60 times since owning the vehicle, and at various gas stations across America. The gas station attendant was very angry with me saying that I overfilled the tank until I explained to him what is going on withthe vehicle. He got a mop hazmat kit and cleaned up the mess before I left. This is a safety and fire hazard. The 2005 Durango was recalled for the same problem, but the 2006 is being ignored. You can see a video of this happening on youtube by looking for 2006 Durango fueling problems. There are too many complaints on this website for nothing to be accomplished for us owners of the 2006 Durango. What will it take, a fire and someone injured or killed to get the message? Chrysler refuses to acknowledge there is an issue, and my local dealer is in denial and knows nothing of the problem.

While refueling my 2006 Dodge Durango limited at various gas stations between pensacola Florida and san antonio Texas, fuel comes spewing out of the refuel nozzle once the pump cuts off and the tank is full this has happened over 60 times since owning the vehicle, and at various gas stations across America. My wife has reuined a pair of shoes and a dress because fuel came spewing out and got all over her, the truck and the ground. This is a safety and fire hazard. The 2005 Durango was recalled for the same problem, but the 2006 is being ignored. You can see a video of this happening on youtube by looking for 2006 Durango fueling problems. Chrysler has contacted me concerning the problem, but want me to pay for the diagonosis, and if parts are found defective, they will pay for the repair. I am a retired military war veteran and disabled veteran, I cannot afford $400+ to diagnos a problem they may not cover repairs on I have googled this problem and also belong to two Dodge Durango web groups and multiple owners have this problem. Someone please look into this before a mishap occurs. In the meantime, I only put 19 gallons in my Durango and stop fueling. Even when I do this, fuel comes back up th etube, but not all the way out.

Each and every time I've let the gas pump auto-fill the tank, gas comes spurting back out. I no longer fill up the tank completely and have to manually stop the gas pump, in a sense, guessing as to when the tank is almost full.

Dear NHTSA, your website lists some 300 or more complaints regarding this vehicle and problem described below. Please move to force a solution from Chrysler before tragedy strikes! 2005 Durangos have been recalled for this exact same problem and it obviously continued in the 2006 models. Thanks. My 2006 Dodge Durango limited began having issues with the fuel tank over a year ago. Every time I fill up the tank, after the nozzle automatically shuts off, gas spews back out of the car onto me and the exterior of the vehicle. And the serb. I called Chrysler about the issue but they (Chrysler) said they were choosing not to assist in replacing the fuel tank, and at this time has not recalled for this safety issue.
