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.

The vehicle gas filler tube over flows nearly every fill up. Gas spills out onto the Jeep and onto the ground.

Whenever I am filling up my Jeep it regularly overflows causing fuel to spill all over myself, vehicle, and ground. It typically spills for a few seconds until the pump shuts off but it is a hassle, fire hazard, and costly. I am aware of many other Jeep Wrangler owners that have this problem.

The gas tank overflows and spits back gas everytime I refill the Jeep's fuel tank. When the automatic shutoff on the gas station pump is engaged the gas sprays out of the fuel cap area of the 2005 Jeep Wrangler. This happens every time regardless of the speed I am filling the tank.

When pumping gas, the gas tank overflows before the gas pump senses it is full. Happens with a 99% chance of happening and easily reproducible.
