  • 93,000 miles


During fueling, after the auto-shutoff of the fuel pump stops the fuel dispensing, fuel overflows (approx. 1/2-1 gallon) from the fuel tank past the still in-place pump handle causing fuel to spill on the side of the vehicle, the ground, and on anyone standing directly beside the fuel inlet.

When filling the gas tank, the tank will overfill every time that the fuel hose handle is allowed to cut off automatically. Gas will then splash down the side of the Jeep and on to the ground.

Bought this Jeep used in Feb 2011. It spills fuel everywhere during fill up at gas pump when nozzle cuts off. It happens every time and at multiple stations. I have to usually only put 15-18 gallons in to prevent it from spilling over. There have been numerous times it has spit and spilled on myself or my wife during fueling.

This vehicle has had a problem with the gas tank overflowing since it was almost new. Jeep has refused to recognize that this is a design flaw and refuses to take responsibility for the environmental and safety hazard that this flaw causes each and every time these Jeep are fueled up. At the point of filling up, the gas tank overflows sending large amounts of gas on the side of the Jeep and onto the ground. This is a terrible fire and environmental hazard that could lead to public injury and even death if it caused a fire. I would be happy to provide a video of this problem occurring if needed to get this addressed. Absent action being taken here, I am not sure where to turn other than mainstream media to get action to be taken.

Fuel overflows every time I visit the gas station. Each gas station pump auto shutoff works properly but fuel always spills over. It is dangerous and should be addressed.

Vehicle was just purchased certified pre-owned. Vehicle came with a full tank of gasoline. While re-filling at a gas station for the first time, the tank filled normally. As soon as the fuel reached the nozzle end I heard the nozzle click off. Then approximately half a gallon of fuel sprayed out the end of the fill tube. The fuel ran all over the side of the Jeep and also sprayed onto my pant leg and shoe. I have since looked this issue up online in Jeep owner's forums and found this to be a huge problem among so many of these models. Not only is this a tremendous safety issue, but also an environmental issue as well. It is obvious that the tank is not vented properly. This issue needs immediate attention before a tragic event occurs. Earlier in this form I was asked if a fire occurred I answered no. Thank god this time there was not. This defect not unlike throwing lit matches at a gas pump.

When filling the gas tank at the pump the tank overfills before the pump shuts off. This problem occurs at almost every pump with any angle and depth of nozzle. I have seen many complaints about the same issue on many Jeep forums.

While filling Jeep with gas for the first time since I purchased used, gas overflowed from tank, gas pump did not shut off until gas was spilling out. I informed the gas station attendant, thinking it was a gas pump problem. Since then, I have filled up at several different stations, and the problem has happened every time unless we slowly pump the gas in as the tank fills.

My vehicle spills fuel out of the filler area every time I fill up. The fuel gets on me, the vehicle, and the ground. I have contacted Chrysler about the matter, and they advise me because I am outside the time frame for their tsb, any repairs would have to be paid by me. After thoroughly researching the matter, it seems this is a wide spread concern. Chrysler has addressed the issue for some, but not others because "we're outside the window". please see your code #PE10032. Also, my vehicle consumes or burns oil at the rate of one quart per 1000 miles. Again, research shows this is another wide spread matter attributed to faulty motor construction of some 2007/2008 engines. Owners who have had the repair done under warranty found that on three pistons, ring gaps where in a line, the other three where close, all six oil expander rings and piston rods where installed upside down. Chrysler will address the matter only if you are still under warranty. I do not understand why the cost should be bared by the consumer when both matters are so common and wide spread as to indicate design flaws in the product. Why should I pay for their inability to build a component correctly?

While pumping fuel to the vehicle. The gas nozzle clicks and shuts off fuel when gas tank is full. The vehicle will burst fuel back out. Spilling all over side of vehicle and on to the floor. When I pump gas I have to make sure I don't fill gas tank to full or the problem will continue. It happens all the time and in different gasoline stations.

  • 25,000 miles
When refueling the vehicle, the automatic shutoff does not engage from the vehicle itself. Fuel (about a quart) continues to flow and out and all over the side of the vehicle. It also sprays out and on the personnel fueling the vehicle. There is a tsb 14-001-11 from Jeep about the issue, and I request this be repaired under warranty. It is unsafe for the operator to have fuel sprayed on them, and have fuel spillage on the ground.

problem #21

  • 11,700 miles
My build date on my Jeep sahara was 10/2006. It started shooting gas back out the fill pipe app. A year after I purchased it and it is still doing it almost every time I fill it up regardless of the gas station or the speed the pump is pumping (slow medium or fast).it has shot gas out as far as a foot from the Jeep, spraying on me a couple different times. I have been informed that some Jeep after a build date from March 2007 thru 2008 are being repaired by the dealer. I would like to know why the earlier build dates are not since it is the same problem.

Every time I fill up my gas tank the fuel will overflow as much as a quart out of the fuel inlet down my rear fender, bumper, and to the ground after releasing the gas spout handle stopping the flow of fuel.

problem #19

  • 38,490 miles
Gas tank overfill. When fueling, after the gas station pump clicks off, large volumes of gasoline are ejected from the gas tank onto the side of the vehicle, onto the pump handle itself, and onto the person doing the fueling (me). Again, this happens *after* the gas pump clicks itself off.
