Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 41,000 miles


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.

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.

While filling up my gas tank I set the pump's trigger mechanism that allows for continuous flow. Prior to the automatic stopping of the pump a substantial amount of gasoline spewed out from the tank. This resulted in a trail of gasoline from my tank down the side of my vehicle and ultimately a large puddle of gasoline on the pavement.

Wrangler 6-cyl Diesel

  • 38,126 miles
Every time I fill my vehicle up with gas the pump shuts off and then the vehicle spews gas out of the fill tube. This has happened at every pump I have used at multiple gas stations. I have tried different angles and it does not help. The last time it happened gas got all over my hands and all over the vehicle. I am concerned about the paint wearing away as well as the potential safety issue of having gas under the vehicle. A significant amount comes out of the fill tube when this happens. I have seen multiple reports of this happening on different forums. It looks like a warranty was extended for 2007 and 2008 models, but not 2010's.

While driving on a pasture the fuel line in our 2010 automatic Jeep Wrangler unlimited became detached from the clip that holds it in the automatic transmission (according to the dealer). The plastic part in the fuel line melted when it became in contact with part of the hot exhaust system. The Jeep stop running and a small fire started beneath the Jeep on the grass. We pushed the vehicle out of the way and put the fire out. There was no fire damage to the Jeep. The Jeep was repaired at labelle Dodge/Chrysler-Jeep, Inc. Ph: 1-800-226-1193 invoice no. [xxx] we contacted Chrysler and we were told that happen because we took the Jeep off road. That there was nothing they could do.

Every time I filled my gas tank starting about a month ago, at several different gas stations, there was a overflow of gasoline after the pump automatically stopped. I did not try to top off. As I pulled the nozzle out of the tank, several cups of gas spewed out of the filler tube.

Every time I try to fill up my Jeep, fuel spills out the gas tank. I have tried holding the nozzle at every angle and depth into the fuel neck possible. This has to be a defect in the gas tank. It happens every time at different gas stations now, fast or slow filling does not matter.

I just bought my 2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport a little over a month ago. Just recently, past 6 fill ups, the pump will click signifying full, then spew and overflow all over side, bumper and ground. No matter how I try to fill it up, even keeping my hand on pump, it will overflow every time. It is even starting to show noticeable fading on the bumper where gas spills.

When filling up the gas tank the fuel spills out after shut off. Approximation a cup to 2 cups will back splash out of the top and spills all over the Jeep and ground. Does not matter what gas station this has just started happening the last two fill ups.

Approximately 5 months ago my 2010 Jeep Wrangler began overflowing at every fill up, spilling fuel all over the side of my vehicle and the ground. This had happened at different gas stations and different temperations, and no matter how slow I try to pump the fuel it still overflows. This problem began all at once and I never had an issue with it before.

When filling my Jeep's gas tank the pressure inside the tank blows gas back out the fill neck. This happens at all fill ups.

The last time two times I filled my gas tank, at two different gas stations, there was a backsplash of gasoline after the pump automatically stopped. I did not try to top off. As I pulled the nozzle out of the tank, about a cup or two of gas splashed out over the fender, my fingers, and onto the ground. The first time I assumed it was a freak incident from the pump, but as it happened a second time today at a different gas station, it seems to be an issue with the vehicle.

problem #9

Nov 272012


  • 36,600 miles
When filling the gas tank, after the pump automatically shuts off, fuel spills from the tank. The fuel spurts out, getting on skin and clothing, and runs down the side of the vehicle, enough to puddle on the ground. This has occurred at the last two consecutive fill-ups for this vehicle. It occurred at two different gas stations. At neither occurrence was the tank being "topped off" when the fuel spillage occurred. The fuel spurting out allows potentially dangerous emissions to be released.

  • 19,585 miles
Every time I've filled up the gas tank, no matter if I do it automatic setting or manual with the lowest setting pressure while pumping. The gas overflows every time. I've tried several gas pumps, adjusted the setting of the pump inside the tank, it still overflows every time. I spoke with the dealership of this issue and they said that my 2010 year model was not covered for the recall when I've heard from fellow owners of the 2010 model having the same problem but they just opt to not fill up the tank while pumping and just stop midway.

  • 55,000 miles
When I fill up my car gas spills out at the end. It started a couple of months after I bought it but then it stopped. The last month it has gotten extremely worse. I saw that later model Jeep had this problem and that there was a recall. Mine was doing exactly the same as the recall vehicles, but I was told that I was not eligible for the recall and would have to pay for the replacement tank. I had an extended warranty, but I do not feel that I should have to pay a dime for a continued part problem.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 18,000 miles
Every time I fill the gas tank it overflows pouring gas all over the side of the car, the ground, and my clothes. This happens at every station so I know it isn't the pump. No matter what I do, this happens. I am 100% certain there is a problem with the tank. I have been driving for almost 40 years and have never seen this happen before to any of my other cars.

I was filling up my Jeep, and when the gas pump shut off automatically, a lot of gasoline came spilling out all over the car and my leg. This has been happening every time I fill the tank completely, with gasoline rushing out down the side of the vehicle.
