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.

During every fill up of gas, the nozzle does not shut down in time and fuel shoots out of the fill tube all over anyone filling the tank and onto the ground. There are hundreds of people complaining of the same thing, all with Jeep Wrangler.

2006 Jeep Wrangler unlimited rubicon. Every time I fill it up with gas, a significant amount of gas shoots out before the pump shuts off. This happens at every pump I've tried. Going slow at the end doesn't solve the problem. Enough fuel comes out that I usually have to mop it up off the ground. This is a dangerous fire hazard.

Everytime I fill my 2006 Jeep Wrangler with fuel it will click the auto shutoff on the pump and then puke fuel all over the side of the car and the ground. Approx. A quart if not careful.

At the completion of adding gas the fuel spot over flows, the gas flow does not stop at the pump automatically. Gas is spilled over the pump handle and ground.

While filling up my 2006 Jeep Wrangler (tj), gas has come shooting out of the inlet for the gas pump nozzle. I am* attempting to 'top off' my fuel tank, this occurs in the normal process of filling my tank up. Today's incident (12/23/2009) is the third incident in less than two months. Previously, I had thought that perhaps it was me exceeding the fill limit of the tank ('topping off') because I was using the 'auto fill' switch on the gas nozzles handle. However, after the second incident in two months I decided to do some research online and have found that this seems to be a complaint with later model Jeep vehicles. To this date and to the best of my knowledge, however, Chrysler has not issued any recall or warning concerning this safety issue. I am filing this complaint because of the safety hazard involved with the splash back of fuel which can hit the person filling up the tank; and because the splash back covers the rear corner panel of the Jeep after it happens, leading to a fire hazard to the vehicle. I have not yet contacted Chrysler, but I will be doing that today as well.

When filling gas tank the auto shutoff doesn't work and the gas tank overflows. This happens on all pumps at many different gas stations. It has to be a problem with the vehicle, not the pumps.

When filling the fuel tank on my 06 rubicon unlimited Wrangler. Before the pump automatically stops pumping the gas will spill out from the filler tube. The amount of fuel spillage can be up to about a quart. This happens every time I try to fill the gas tank. According to the dealer the only fix is to replace the entire fuel tank. This repair would no be covered under warranty. I believe having fuel rush out of the filling nozzle while pumping gas is a very dangerous problem.

When filling the gas tank, the gas continually overflows. It makes no difference if the tank is fueling fast or slow. This is dangerous and if you don't remember to stand back your shoes and clothing are saturated.

Most of the time when filling the fuel tank on my 2006 Jeep Wrangler the fuel overflows from the tank and onto the ground prior to the pump shutting off. There seems to be a significant risk of fire. This happens at various fuel stations and various types of pumps. It appears that Jeep is claiming this is a "normal" wear item when in fact it isn't. it is a problem with significant risk involved.

2006 Jeep Wrangler tj. When filling the gas tank the gas will spew out before it shuts off.

problem #2

Wrangler

  • 77,000 miles
When filling up my fuel tank normally and not topping it off, fuel sprays out of the filler neck before the pump can shut off. This happens every time I fill the tank spilling gas on myself and on the ground. There is no way to avoid it unless I do not fill the tank up. I took the Jeep to the dealership and they say I need a new fuel tank. My Jeep is out of warranty but there are many other people with this same problem indicating that it's a faulty rollover valve yet Chrysler denies that it's a defective part.

When filling up the gas tank, the tank will overflow. It happens regularly, approximately 1 in every 5 fills. It occurs at different filling stations using different pumps. Many Jeep owners have reported this problem. It is a safety concern and the defective component should be recalled.
