Every time I fill my gas tank up a bunch of gas spills out all over the Jeep, the ground and me. This has been happening for around 6 months now. This happens at every gas station I've used.

Every time I fill up with gas (regardless of station / how I hold nozzle / speed at which I refuel / etc), the tank overflows with a lot of gas all over the vehicle and the ground and sometimes on me. Then the interior of the vehicle stinks of fumes for a long time afterward. This has been going on for almost as I've had the vehicle but it getting worse over the past year.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • 32,999 miles
2006 Jeep Liberty sport (3.7L gas), spills fuel at every fill up. The pump will click off, and about two seconds later, about a cup of fuel will spill out of the filler tube all over my hands, clothes, and vehicle. Jeep dealer said they've not heard of the problem, even though with 5 minutes of research online, it's very common. This has been a problem since I purchased it as a certified Jeep vehicle with 32, xxx miles.

The Jeep Liberty has regularly "spit" out quantities of gasoline while filling up at gas stations. The quantities range from 1 to 8 ounces, with the quantity that poured out today the largest amount yet. The quantities vary by how fast the pump is pumping and whether the pump is hand operated or on automatic but some quantity of gas comes out almost every time. The spill today left at least 4 to 6 ounces of gasoline on the ground which is both an environmental and safety hazard.

When fueling the tank the gasoline pump will not turn off when the tank gets full causing a significant amount of gasoline to spill down the side of the vehicle and onto the ground as well as splashing all over the handle and the person holding the handle. This happens every time the tank is filled regardless of weather or location.

For the last 2 months every time I fill up my Jeep Liberty 2006 gas spills out. This is frustrating especially with the price of gas. I estimate that I lose at least a gallon each time. When I first got the Jeep I noticed that you could not "top off" the gas which each fill. But now it just spills out all over. Help!!

Every time I fill up my vehicle at a gas station gas comes pouring out after the tank is full. The gas nozzle clicks off and gas begins to pour out all over the side of the vehicle and the ground. I have tried manually pumping as well as automatically pumping with the same results. I have attempted filling at multiple gas stations with the same outcome. This did not occur the first year that I owned my car, and only began in the past couple months. This is a hazard to the environment and a potential danger for a fire.

Suddenly started over-flowing gas out the filler tube upon filling. Has happened with multiple filling stations for about the last 6 or 8 fillings. Never happened prior to that. There have been no modifications, damage, or changes in the fuel system of the vehicle.

2006 Jeep Liberty overflows when filling with gas. Gas sprays out with significant force. Had the same problem with a 2006 durnago and the entire fuel tank and fill neck needed replaced. 2005 models were recalled, nothing on 2006 yet.

2006 Jeep Liberty made in May 06. This model is similar to the 07. Gas tank filling to full, gasoline shoots out the gas inlet with much back pressure. It has been doing this consistently for the last couple of months since I bought the car. It makes no difference what station I go to, or how fast the gasoline is flowing.

  • 41,015 miles
2006 Jeep Liberty sport overflows from the gas tank when filling gas. This happens at various gas stations. The automatic shut-off at service station pumps do not sense pressure to shut off. This causes fuel to spill on side of car, ground and possibly the person filling the tank. This is an environmental hazard, fire hazard and could cause harm as an inhalant.

Both rear regulators have quit working, leaving my Jeep and myself vulnerable to others being able to easily enter the vehicle. We have replaced one and will be replacing the other next week due to the cost. As if that wasn't enough, the sun roof just quit working and stuck partially open. I hardly ever use it, so it did not break due to use. We took it into the dealership and it will cost $1300 dollars to repair, which we cannot afford. Also, fuel quite often overflows when fueling, spilling gasoline down the side of my Jeep as well as spraying out onto the person fueling. It does not matter how slowly we put the gasoline in, it still overflows.
