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.

My 2005 Jeep Wrangler rubicon overflows fuel every time I fill up the gas tank. For some reason the gas pump will never stop filling the tank automatically until a large amount of fuel comes spilling out of the fill tube. I have read many complaints about this issue on Jeep forums online, and feel that Chrysler should be recalling affected models to fix this issue.

When fueling my vehicle, the pump stops but gas flows out of the filler. I have to fill the tank very slowly to prevent this from happening. This happens every time I get fuel.

Every time we fill up with gas, it overflows or sprays out when the nozzle clicks off. We took it in to get it warrantied, and Jeep said it was our fault from offroading. How could that be when it has done it since brand new? they informed us it will cost us about $1000 to fix, I think it is a defect.

My 2005 Jeep Wrangler sport has a fuel tank overflow issue. When filling the tank up it inevitably overflows regardless of what station, existing fuel level or type of filler nozzle. It is also my understanding that this issue is rather widespread. I initially believed that something had simply broken, but after a bit of research I am not alone. Please look into this.

On 4/5/2010 I purchased a used 2005 Jeep Wrangler. I drove it from il to pa. During that drive I needed to get gas 3 times. Each time I filled the gas the tank overfilled and fuel was spilled. I went online today to check on this issue and found many others seem to be having the same problem.

2005 Jeep Wrangler lj/tj rubicon unlimited when filling up with gasoline the tank overflows out of the vehicle spraying onto the operartor of the gas pump and flooding the immediate area and on the ground. This is very dangerous and the operator of the pump is covered in gas and fumes this could cause a fire and damage to the skin and eyes; in worse case scenario an explosion if a cell phone is in ones pocket or nearby. Please recall these vehicles immediately; it happens to almost every Jeep Wrangler and eventually will effect all. This is not from topping off or using a high pressure gas nozzle or one gas station. This happens no matter where I am and if I don't time if correctly gasoline will be all over the place. Although not serious, at one time gasoline did spray enough on a windy day to hit me in the eye causing a burning sensation and redness obviously I could not operate the vehicle for about 10 minutes. If a young child is near by this would be a serious issue.

Everytime the gas tank is filled up, fuel comes launching out from around the pump handle spraying anyone standing within a couple of feet of the pump. This occurs every time the tank is filled, at every gas station. Jeep has suggested a replacement tank, but with no assurances that it will solve the problem. The results of a online search indicates a replacement tank will not solve the problem.

1. filling the gas tank in my 2005 Jeep Wrangler, if I allow the pump to actually fill it up (until you hear the "click" sound) just before the click gas sprays out of the filler nozzle (at least a couple cups worth). 2. this happens every single time I let the pump fill my tank until full. I very quickly learned that I'd have to just estimate how much gas I needed, round down, and not fill up all the way (manually). 3. I took it to the Jeep dealer, and they said they didn't find anything wrong with my fuel filler or tank, despite this being a widely documented issue on www.jeepforum.com. on a later page it kept saying it was invalid, even though I know this is correct.

When fueling, gas shoots out of filler tube due to defective check valve. This is both a fire hazard and an environmental concern, not to mention the fact that the person filling the tank gets gas all over them.
