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 pump gas now, the pump will stop and then discharge a fairly large amount of gas. Probably around a half gallon. I feel that with these discharge of gas being every time I fill up is a safety issue and needs to be looked in to. If there is ever a spark when it discharges it will indefinitely cause a fire that has the likely hood of causing injury or death to me and whoever else is around when it happens. Also, I know that it is not only my Jeep that is having the problem. My friends Jeep does the same thing. He told me that one time the pump did not stop and gas was shooting from his gas tank.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 27,000 miles
When filling the fuel tank, fuel will overflow out of the filling tube, thus causing several ounces of fuel to spill out. Thus coating the side of my Jeep as well as the group with highly flammable gasoline. It doesn't seem to matter how fast or slow the tank is filled, it overflows every time. Gas also contains aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (btex) these chemicals are harmful to both humans and the environment.

Every time I fill my 2007 Jeep Wrangler up at the gas station I get a huge explosion of gas that shoots out of the fueling area toward me when my tank reaches full and the pump clicks off. It is extremely dangerous because it spews at a high rate toward my face.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 123,000 miles
About one second after the pump shuts off automatically 6 to 8oz of fuel is expelled out of the vehicle running out all over the car and ground. Was found to be faulty inlet check valve on Wrangler manufactured between 03/01/07 and 03/31/08. My vehicle was manufactured on 11/08/06 but I am experiencing the same problem. Jeep refuses to rectify the problem as my manufacture date is out of the specified date range. I believe it should be expanded as I have read about many other Jeep having this same problem. This problem is a dangerous safety concern that should be repaired at the cost of the manufacturer because of a defective part.

Wrangler

  • 80,000 miles
While filling it with gas, it overflows and then clicks off after it has spilled enough to reach the ground. Maybe 2 cups of gas goes all over the body of the vehicle, and onto the ground. I can hear air pressure sometimes just before it spurts gas, but not soon enough to prevent the spill. This condition happens every time it is filled now.
