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.

At any refueling, before the fuel pump auto shut off is engaged, there is fuel spit back out of the fuel filler. It runs down the corner panel and behind the left rear fender flare, as well as onto the ground. Depending on what setting you have the pump handle set to (high, medium, low), depends on how much fuel is spat back out.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 141,000 miles
Since purchase in November, this vehicle has always shot fuel out of the fuel filler when it reaches a full tank. The gas pump will shut off, but never before it has expelled fuel onto me personally, my shoes, the ground, the filler cap (which is attached to the vehicle by tether), and down the body panel below the filler. This is a serious fire and health hazard for myself and other patrons of the fuel station.

Every fill up the fuel splashes back out of the fill tube, spilling about a cup of fuel down the side of the vehicle and onto the ground.this happens regardless of the fill rate. I have looked the fuel system over to the best of my ability, and can't come up with the cause.

When filling up with gas at California pumps, the nozzle keeps shutting off. It doesn't seem to matter how fast or slow I try to fill, what angle I turn the nozzle, or how deep I enter the nozzle, it keeps shutting off. It takes about 15 minutes to fill the tank, a few seconds at a time.

When filling up the tank, the shutoff does not work at any gas station. The fuel shoots out of the tank. This is highly dangerous and results in me not being able to fill up my vehicle. In addition, I worry that the shutoff would not work in case of rollover.
