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.

When filling up my 2006 Jeep Wrangler rubicon gas will spray out on initial shut off of the gas pump. I've had this problem looked at, but was told it was normal for that to happen from time to time. Then, I complained to Jeep and they allowed the dealership to switch out tanks because my Jeep was under warranty. This was only a temporary fix...gas still sprays out!!!

When refueling our Jeep the pump does not shut off in time spraying fuel all over the side of the vehicle and ground. To fix this the dealer wants to replace the fuel tank. This is a very common across the board Chrysler problem that they are not owning up to.

The fuel filler neck/gas tank on my 2006 Jeep Wrangler has filling problems. Any time I go to fill up on gas the pump does not click off in time and gas literally shoots out of the filler neck all over the bumper of the Jeep and on the ground. I haven't tried to measure the volume of gas that shoots out each time, but I would estimate at least 6-8oz of fuel.

  • 33,056 miles
During fueling, when the fuel pump nozzle automatically stops the flow of gasoline, fuel surges back through the filler tube and vigorously splashes out on the side of the vehicle and anything or person within 2 to 3 feet of the fuel filler. This occurs every time the fuel tank is filled and has drenched the person filling the vehicle from the waist down with gasoline on two occasions. Has spilled fuel on every fillup (at least one cup), despite precautions (slowing filling rate). Manufacturer and dealer have done nothing to correct this problem, this happens almost every time I fill up.

Fuel spills out on me and surrounding area when filling the gas tank. This event happens every time I fill the tank. I cannot use the automatic fuel shutoff on the fuel nozzles as gas is spilled (about.5 cup) on the surrounding area. This is a fire hazard.

When refueling the vehicle, gasoline is spit back out of the filler neck when the automatic shutoff releases and the tank is full. If the filler nozzle has splash guard, spilled fuel runs down the side of the vehicle on to the ground. Otherwise fuel is shot out up to 5 feet and cover anything or anybody within the radius of the spill. No remedy found, it always happens.

Fuel spray everytime I fill the vehicle. Fuel pump does not sense tank is full and sprays fuel everywhere. Widely reported by fellow Jeep Wrangler owners across the country. Chrysler denies problem while replacing some tanks with new tank that continues to use faulty design. Currently there is no aftermarket help or support for this issue and certainly none from Chrysler or Jeep.

2006 Jeep Wrangler X. when I go to fill up my gas tank, if I let it fill to complete I get a huge back spray of gasoline in my face, on my car, and all over the ground. I have tried to fill it up slow, adjust the neck of the filler, taken my Jeep to a mechanic, all to no avail. It occurs everytime I go to fill up my gas tank if I let if fill completely up. Apparently the problem is the gas tank itself. Gasoline spraying from my filler is a huge safety issue that needs to be addressed by Chrysler Jeep Corp. Please consider that I am not the only one with this issue.

Every time I fill up with gas, the auto shutoff doesn't work and spills gas all over my Jeep and the ground. It happens regardless of gas station, temperature, how far the nozzle is pushed into the filler, etc. It happens every single time I fill up. It has done this for no apparent reason, since the day I bought it with only 19K miles on it. I checked the vent line going from the tank to the filler neck, and its fine. Eventually the gas has started to wear away the paint finish, and the finish on the flare. Not to mention a hazardous material spill.

When fueling my 2006 Jeep Wrangler the gas pump will not shut off and gas sprays from the tank. I have tried several stations and the problem continues. After doing some research I have found many issues similar to mine. The common conclusion is the roll-over antispill valve has gone bad and this part is not replaceable on its own. So it seems that the whole fuel tank needs replacing. It seems this part needs to be recalled as it has a high rate of failure.
