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.

While filling up my gas tank, it got to full then seemed to regurgitate gas. Spilling down the side of my Jeep, onto me, and on the ground near the pump. This concerns me because of the risk of fire and explosion. The gas is harmful to skin and it spilled all over me. I just purchased this Jeep. This should not happen.

Every time I fill my gas tank, it overfills. The first time I thought it was the gas pump but it has done it consistently for the last 2 months. I have filled up at different stations and every single time it sprays out all over the body/rear bumper.

I purchased my 2010 Wrangler new. The last three times I have filled my fuel tank, gas has spewed out of the tank immediately after the nozzle clicked off. It seems to be coming from a build-up of pressure inside of the gas tank because the gas comes back out of the tank forcefully even if the nozzle is still in the tank. The first time this happened to me I had to go home to change clothes and to wash the gasoline off of my legs. I thought it was something I had done wrong. I have since filled up two more times and I have used different pumps at different gas stations with the same result. This happened again today (01/21/14), and the station attendant rushed out to clean up the fuel that was spilled because there was so much on the ground and again, I had gas spewed on me. I feel this is a very dangerous situation and should be addressed in some way by Chrysler.

The gas will overflow, spill out, when I fill up the gas tank. The nozzle shuts off and gas spills out after shut off. I took the vehicle to the dealer, they diagnosed a bad valve in the tank which would require the tank to be removed/replaced.

I own a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. When I fill up with gas the automatic shut off fails and has sprays out of the filler point. This has happened multiple multiple times. I do not "top off" the fuel. It sprays with force shooting out gas everywhere creating a safety and environmental hazard.

  • 30,000 miles
When refueling, when the fuel filler nozzle clicks off, there is a gush of fuel that spouts out of the fuel tank filler neck for a second or two. It has now become consistent, regardless of when or where the vehicle is refueled (at 6000' or 3000', on 75 degree days or 30). This problem did not occur before this past summer, and was intermittent until about this October. It now occurs anytime the filler is allowed to click off. It behaves as if the fuel tank is not venting as fuel is delivered. When the delivery is cut off, the pressure in the tank, increased through introduction of fuel without an equivalent reduction in volume of air, expels the fuel remaining in the filler neck until equalized. This is speculation on my part but plausibly describes the observed behavior.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. The contact was refueling the vehicle when spilled out of the fuel tank. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection however, the technician was unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The VIN was unavailable. The approximate failure mileage was 16,000.

  • 3,500 miles
When filling the gas tank, the pump does not shut off causing fuel to spill out of the gas tank, down the side of the vehicle, and all over the ground. I have tried various brands of gas, various service stations, and the problem can be replicated every time. The speed of fueling doesn't help either. There was a service bulletin issued (sb-14-002-09) in response to NHTSA reference: 10032006, but it only covered up to model years 2009. It appears the problem still exists in model year 2010.

I own a 2010 Jeep Wrangler sahara. Every time I fill my tank with fuel, the pump doesn't shut off on time. The result causes gas to overflow, spraying out of the tank and pouring down the side of my vehicle.

I purchased a 2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited in May 2010. In January 2013, the fuel system does not respond to a shut-off mechanism. Gasoline overflows the tank and spills down the side onto the pavement. It doesn't matter if I use the lowest setting on the gas pump or if I manually use as little pressure as possible; it overfills every single time and gas pours out of the fill spout running down the body of the vehicle on my hand on my clothes and on the ground. The Jeep has more than 30,000 miles and is no longer under warranty. ## VIN failed ##

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 18,000 miles
In approx Nov of 2012 I started having problems with fuel overflowing on ground/feet when filling gas tank. There would be a quart or better of fuel that would spill. After the fourth occurance I had dealership check it out while in for routine oil change. On February 6, 2013, I was advised that the vent had failed on the gas tank and the gas tank needed to be replaced. Unfortunately, there is a minimun three week back order on Jeep gas tanks from Chrysler. Dealership told me they are seeing a high number of filler neck and tank failures, causing the delay in obtaining parts. I was told this is not a recall, but I am still covered under warranty. Now Jeep feels like it is going to stall while idiling. Dealership advised this is probably related to the gas tank not venting.

Fuel spit back during refueling. This has happened on multiple occassions now. Worried about potential fire hazard. Chrysler/Jeep has not yet issued a warranty extension for this model year eventhough incidents are consistent with the same reported issue in 2007-2008 Jeep Wrangler jks for which a warranty extension was issued.

When refueling, the pump handle clicks off at the appropriate time the tank should be full. However when you pull the pump handle out of the filler neck, the fuel continues to flow as if it were not shut off. This overflow causes fuel to spew out of the filler neck on the car and surrounding area.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 27,000 miles
When filling up gas tank, I set the pump to automatically shut off. Upon shutting off, a significant amount of gas spewed out down the side of vehicle and onto the ground. This has happened every time I have filled up since. I have tried different gas pumps and station and it has continued to happen every time I have filled up.
