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 refueling vehicle, gas pump auto-shut-off fails and gasoline spills out filler neck onto rear panel and ground. Depending on handle setting, spill is either backsplash or just overflow, but always spills.

While filling my 2006 Jeep Wrangler with gas, it always spills fuel when the tank is full instead of shutting off. Fuel spills down the rear quarterpanel of the Jeep and onto the ground, many times fuel sprays back onto me, my hands and my clothes. This occurs any time I let the tank fill completely full and the pump stop itself.

Beginning two years ago, gasoline began to overflow from the fill spout of my 2006 Jeep Wrangler whenever I filled the tank to anywhere near its full capacity. To this day this continues to result in gasoline spilling on vehicle myself and the ground almost every time I fill my tank. The only remedy I have found is to not fill the tank all the way up, which is sometime difficult to determine. The local dealership determined I needed a new fuel tank installed ($700). I have not had the tank replaced as there is no guarantee that the problem will not occur again as the parts are, to the best of my knowledge, not updated from the parts on the vehicle now. Obviously this is a safety and environmental problem not being properly addressed or even admitted to by the manufacturer.

Fuel spills from fuel tank. The pump will shut off but the fuel will eject out of the filler tube. I have been splashed with fuel. This has been a constant problem with fueling. Even running the pump at lowest speed the condition still occurs. If I shut the pump handle off early, it will sometimes prevent the spill. Not always.

I have not been able to fill up my 2006 Jeep Wrangler since the day I bought it. When the tank is "full", the gas over flows out of the filler tube and goes all over the fender flare and rear quarter panel. Sometimes, if I don't get out of the way fast enough, I'll get gas on me as well.

When I fill my 2006 Jeep Wrangler with fuel it sprays out of the tank back towards the pump before shutting off, every time. It overfills the tank. It's discoloring the paint on my vehicle, it causes a gas spill on the pavement, and it often gets fuel on my hand and clothes. I have had the vehicle since it had 19,000 miles on it. It now has 42,000, and the problem continues. A couple thousand miles ago I installed a 1" body lift as I had heard that sometimes fixes the problem, and the issue continues the same as before. This is an extremely common and well talked about complaint in the Jeep community, and as far as I'm concerned, it's a safety hazard. For incident date I'm just going to select today, as that's the most recent time it's happened.

Starting when the vehicle had approx 30K miles, the handle at the gas station would shut off one to two seconds after gas would come spraying out of the filler neck. Different gas stations or handle styles had no effect on the problem. I did discover that if filled very slowly, it would click off before overfilling; however, the problem is progressive and that method is no longer effective. Last week (March 21st 2010) I went to add gas and found that the handle would click off instantly when more than 1/4 flow was attempted, even though the gas tank was empty. Attempts at removing the gas tank and associated components have found no obstructions or obvious damage; however the malfunction remains.

I own a 2006 Jeep rubicon Wrangler... every fill up the gas tank overflows spilling at least 2-3 cups worth of gasoline all over my Jeep, the ground and sometimes on me. I feel this is not only a saftey hazard but an environmental hazard as well.
