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.

My Jeep Wrangler spills gas from the fill pipe everytime it is filled up. Im not topping it off. It does this everytime from the first shutoff. Its not the nozzle as this happens at all different gas stations. I found on Jeep forum this seems to be a common problem with all Wrangler. This can be a safety concern as a fire could happen or skin irritation can occur as sometimes I get splashed with fuel.

2005 Jeep Wrangler rubicon unlimited. No excessive wear or tear. Vehicle has been splashing gas every time the tank is topped off for over a year. This causes anywhere from a half pint to a quart of gas to spray and run down the side of the Jeep. As far as I know Jeep has not issued a recall to fix what I see as a significant safety issue.

I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler rocky mountain edition. Every time I fill up a the gas station gas over flows. It doesn't matter if I barely squeeze the handle, or leave it on the auto flow notches. It has been doing this for the past 2 years.

Tj Wrangler Jeep. When filling the gas tank at the end of the filling it spills gas out of the tank all over the place. The gas will gush out and get all over the Jeep and the person filling the tank.

A valve inside the fuel tank is faulty leading to fuel spillage after the gas nozzle clicks off due to pressure buildup. This is a very common problem for this car, and completely unacceptable and it seems Jeep does not want to do anything. This is a safety hazard, as fuel spills all over the side of the vehicle and ground. This is also an emissions issue.

Every time I fill the gas tank, it overflows after the nozzle clicks closed. The only way I've found to prevent this is to 'guess' when the tank is almost full, then put my ear to the opening and listen for fuel coming to the top. That's dangerous and should be unnecessary. This has been happening over the last two years.

My fuel tank overflows every time I fill up, spilling gasoline all over my Jeep, gas cap, and ground. Can be very dangerous, especially if standing by gas tank while filling up. What if a small kid walks up to my car when it spills out? I see 86+ complaints on this site for this exact problem and nothing has been done! it's been happening to me for well over 3 years.

Every time I refuel my 2005 Jeep Wrangler a large amount of fuel spits out of the fuel filler onto the ground. It appears to be a problem with the design of the check valve built into the fuel tank. This manufacturing defect is a major fire hazard as well as an environmental hazard.

2005 Jeep Wrangler fuel spilling when fueled. At around 20,000 miles every time I fill up the tank gas is spit out. I have never had this problem with any other vehicle I have driven. I even tried running the nozzle at the slowest speed possible, and it will still spit some out. Talking to other Jeep owners we have determined that this is a major issue effecting mostly 2004 Wrangler and newer. This is a safety issue, environmental issue, if not careful it can cover the person fueling with gas, and other people if they are close enough, and it wastes precious gas.

I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler rocky mountain edition. Every fill up results in an overflow of gas because the nozzle does not automatically shut off until the tank overflows. This has been going on for a few months and was never a problem before.
