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.

Every time I put gas in the car, fuel spills out of the gas tank filler hole all over the car. I have been filling gas tanks for 40 years and I know all the tricks. I do not top off and am careful to reduce flow when I think it is near the top. Doesn't matter. It spills out anyway. At every gas station.

Every time I fill the gas tank, gas overflows out of the tank and onto the body of the Jeep and the ground. I have tried to fill the last couple of gallons slow but it still overflows.

The fuel system over flows when refueling. It does not matter what gas station or pump. This is a fire safety hazard as well as an environmental hazard.

Fuel tank consistently overfills. Problems causes gasoline to overfill the tank and flow down the side of the vehicle and collect in a pool. This problem initially started slowly but now occurs consistently at all gasoline stations. Based on other Jeep Wrangler owners experience this appears to be a common problem that should be corrected by the manufacturer.

2006 Jeep Wrangler that has had a problem with overflowing fuel while filling it up since acquired at 7,000 miles. This problem poses a significant safety problem as well as a negative environmental impact. The problem has been reported to Chrysler, but they stated my Jeep wasn't affected by the recall that they have issued on the exact same fuel tank components being used in other models.

2006 Jeep Wrangler. Gas tank fillup, at any gas station, results in tank overflow. Burps out up to 1/4 gallon of gas before pump stops. This is a well known and common problem for all Jeep Wrangler, most model years. Happens every time I fill up, not just occasionally.

On my 2006 Jeep Wrangler sport, the gas tank overflows fuel every single time I have to refill the tank. The tank apparently does not vent properly, which causes the auto-shut-off feature on gas pumps to fail until the tank overflows, spitting gasoline out (over a foot from the side of the vehicle at times), hitting the individual filling up the tank and making a mess of the side of the vehicle. This fuel overflow issue occurs 100% of the time. Upon speaking with the dealership, I was told that they will not warranty this, but that it is a "common" problem among 1997-present Wrangler. Chrysler issued a recall for this problem on 2007-later Wrangler, but refuses to take responsibility for the 2006 and older models. Reviewing both local and national Jeep internet forums, I have seen forum threads on this topic with literally hundreds of 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler owners claiming the same problem as I am having with my 2006 Wrangler. The cost to replace the fuel tank, the only solution, is at a cost of $1100-$1200. This is a very serious problem and needs to be addressed immediately. To date, I have not had any personal injury or damage, as asked below, but that is only a matter of time!
