My 2007 Jeep Wrangler X (just purchased this past Saturday 3/15/14) overflows gasoline when filling it up. It doesn't indicate like other vehicles that it's nearing full by shutting off, it keeps going and splashes out, every time you fill it.

Gas tank spillover. The gas tank does not trigger the gas pump at the station to stop. I cannot fill my tank without having gas spill out or overflow. I don't recall when I first noticed it happening but approximately 1 year ago or a little more is when I recall. I think it is a safety hazard when it keeps spilling out.

Fuel back flows out of the fuel filler neck at gas stations when full, no matter how slow I run the nozzle. Chrysler has determined that my build date is before their tsb, so it is not covered. My solution is to stuff paper towels at the nozzle during every fill, which soaks up the excess fuel spillage. Not very friendly to the environment, but if it is ok with Chrysler, then I guess it is ok with me.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 40,292 miles
First occurrence Dec 6th 2012, backing out of an inclined driveway. Vehicle seemed as if it had no power, stalled, spitting and sputtering like it was starving for gas. Finally got it out of the driveway and was about 15 miles from closest Jeep dealership in ocala fl, and nursed it there, spitting and sputtering and stalling the whole trip. Left it overnight and got a call the next day where they had found the problem and a couple of other things wrong (unrelated to the problem) I approved the fixes and after $677 later drove off the lot. The only thing I can see on the invoice that would have caused the original problem is a line that reads "cleaner-fuelsystem" and has a $59 part and a $106 labor charge. On January 13th 2013 it starts acting up again. I take it back to same dealership the next day and complain that I'm not going to come in every month and pay a $90 diagnostics fee for something they said was fixed. So they plug it in and the code tells them I was running "lean" however they have no idea this time what's wrong. And of course it's not doing it so they "can't fix what's not broke". between Jan and July it has done this many times, in the beginning it was once or twice a month but now will do it almost every trip. When it stalls completely I loose ps & pb, very dangerous. It now stalls at speeds of around 50 mph and I just have to pull onto shoulder to restart. Sometimes it restarts right away and other times I have to sit a short bit. It seems to be related to longer trips, 1-2 hours. But sometimes will happen after being on the road for 15 minutes. The stalling at 50 mph and loosing ps & pb is the most concerning in traffic.

The vehicle routinely spills large quantities of gasoline whenever it is filled with gas. This does not include "topping off" but occurs whenever the tank is filled until the pump handle automatically stops at any station in multiple states and every single time.

While filling up fuel tank to full and using the automatic shutoff supplied by all fuel stations the gas will overflow out of the filler neck for 1-2 seconds before actually stopping the flow of the fuel.

Every time that I fill my vehicle up with fuel it overflows and spills all over the side of the vehicle and onto the ground. At first, I just thought it was the pumps at the gas station I normally go to, but recently I've started to go to a new gas station and the same thing is happening. What finally brought it to my attention was that I was filling up, and someone with the same year (2007) Jeep was getting gas right next to me and the same thing happened to him. I know 2 other people with Jeep Wrangler and theirs are doing the same thing. I'd be willing to bet most have this problem. It's not only bad for the environment, it's a dangerous situation as well.

While filling up with gas the Jeep will shoot approx. 1/2 gl. Of gas back out the filler neck. At first I thought it was an isolated incident. Now over the coarse of two years it happens everytime at fill up. My wife and myself have been sprayed by gas that has shot back out. Jeep has placed a tsb/recall on certain build dates but my build date does not fall within those dates.

All complete fills of gas in the tank creates a spillover. Need to be very careful when it nears full otherwise a minimum of a cup of fuel spills. The shutoff on the pump is not recognized. Happens at all gas stations. Notice numerous other postings on the internet with similar issues.

My Wrangler was manufactured 2/07- I purchased it used in 2/12. Every time I fill the tank, gas spills out immediately after the pump stops. Daimler Chrysler will not acknowledge this is an issue despite hundreds of complaints from 2007-08 Wrangler owners. This is obviously a safety issue and there should be a recall.

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that fuel spilled out from the filler neck while refueling. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for a diagnostic test. The technician stated that the check valve in fuel tank failed and would have to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 35,500. The consumer stated the failure happened four to five times over several times, while using the auto shut off at the pump or hand filling the tank. Gas spilled out of the filler area, down the side of the vehicle onto the consumer's shoes. It was determined the check valve in the fuel tank failed. Updated 04/18/12

Just purchased this Jeep used, excellent condition few days ago Jan. 2012. Major fuel spitting back upon filling the tank. The pump shuts off as expected and then there is a huge gush of gas that comes out after all over me, the side of Jeep, and all over the ground. This is a huge safety issue and a fire concern! the second attempt at fueling I tried slowing the speed of gas and not filling all the way --- same thing happened. Jeep dealer acts they've never heard of this. A lie. I've emailed Chrysler and they also are acting like they don't know anything about it even though I have a copy of a letter they have sent to previous owners about it stating they would repair this fuel spitback issue. Apparently, my previous owner did nothing! I've now read all of the reports and claims. Too bad we didn't know this before. I am afraid to put my family in this Jeep and we haven't even had it for a week. You don't think it's a recall" I need this fixed! what will it take for you to issue a recall? a fire, explosion? or do you need to wait for a death first? would you like a video of this fuel spitting back out of the side of my new Jeep? I would be glad to film it for you as proof! it's not just a little fuel --- it's a gush! wake up, okay" I am a new owner and nobody and no internet sites or social media B.S. is influencing me. I need help and so does everyone else with this extremely dangerous issue.
