problem #104

Jan 142017


  • 38,675 miles


Just bought 2010 Jeep on 1/2/17 with only 38K miles for our 17 year old son. Every time we put gas in the Jeep the gas splatters out everywhere, enough to saturate side of Jeep and ground as well as clothes, skin. The gas will still come out after automatic shut off occurs. It seems the gas is coming back out of the tank and not the nozzle since we have gone to different gas stations. Even let the gas nozzle sit a moment before removing from tank. Vehicle engine was shut off and not running. Nozzle was properly inserted. My husband and myself have tried to do it without the gas spilling (slow, not topping off, waiting to remove nozzle) but it still does it. Not a safe vehicle for our son to take to college.

When fueling, gas sprays out of the fill hole. This causes a dangerous condition for the environment and for the people it sprays on. Fca says I need a new fuel tank.($1100) they could not find the problem when the warranty was in effect but now that the warranty has expired they know exactly what to do.

Gas gushing out when filling vehicle at gas pump, the auto shut off does not shut off manually or auto shut off. Vehicle is stationary, I believe this is a manufacturers problem in the gas tank preventing the gas overflow. This is a hazard. This vehicle only has 47K miles. This has happened the last 4 times pumping gas.

The vehicle would spit gas out of the filler pipe after the pump would click off. The problem then developed into not letting me put gas in at all without the pump clicking off many times for a small amount of fuel. Replacing the tank fixed the problem. This problem has been well documented from 2007-2012 but Jeep only recalled or extended the warranty on models 2007-2008.

The fuel evaporation port on my gas tank which has a hose that connects to the evap canister broke for no reason. I could frequently smell gasoline outside the rear of the vehicle & being near the muffler was afraid of a fire. Also since these fumes are vented back into the engine I had rough idle, lower economy, & was polluting the atmosphere. Also, the only solution offered by dealer was to replace the entire gas tank for $900.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. While attempting to use the passenger side seat belt, the seat belt would not latch to secure the contact. The failure was intermittent. Also, while driving at various speeds, the fuel cap warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing, but the details of the diagnosis could not be provided. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 48,000.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that the fuel tank did not have a sensor; therefore, every time fuel was pumped and the tank was filled, fuel spilled out. The manufacturer was notified. The vehicle was driven to a mechanic, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The VIN was unknown. The approximate failure mileage was 900.

Gasoline will shoot out of the filler tube when filling the vehicle with gas while manually pumping or using the auto shut-off of the pump handle. It occurs on almost every fill-up.

When pumping gas the gas does not click off and gas spits out all over me and the Jeep. I just purchased this used from a Ford dealer. I had this same problem with my Dodge durango that had a recall by Chrysler. I checked and there is no recall on the 2010 Jeep Wrangler but have researched and it seems to be a common problem with Jeep. There should be a recall on them before someone gets hurt. I filled up at different gas stations. I had other people pump the gas, including the mechanic from the dealership I purchased the Jeep at. It did the same thing each time. The only way to avoid it is to not fill up which does not solve the problem.

When filling up with fuel at the pump, the automatic shutoff on the pump will click off and then a large amount of fuel will come spilling back out of the vehicle and onto the ground. It does this at almost every fill up regardless of the temperature, pump or gas station used.

Never knew that this was an issue until recently but for 5 years, since the first fill up of gas, the automatic shut off on the pump pops followed by a spurting of gasoline out of my tank. It gets everywhere. On me, my clothes, my shoes, the ground, not to mention all over the side of my Jeep and the fender.

The Jeep was turned off and stopped at the gas station and when filing up with gas the gas pulsates out of the opening and spews out all over Jeep and ground. Also not sure if related the next day the gas cap code came on.

While filling the gas tank, it will overflow and about a gallon of gas will come out and go all over the ground. It happens at many different gas stations and is a hazard to people and the environment.

While filling the gas tank fuel will spill out of the filler spout. It seems to be under pressure when the tank is almost full....very dangerous...if you do not stop the pump prior to a full tank of gas it will spill out every time

Gas tank overflow on every fillup. On some pumps I can only pump 1/3 of a gallon at a time very slowly. It seems clear that the check valve is having some kind of issue as is a well known problem in these Jeep. The dealership will not take any responsibility for the problem and charges almost double what a new tank would cost to diagnose and replace the tank.

Fuel spills out of the filler port during the refueling process. This condition generally occurs when the fuel tank is filled to the full or nearly full level and the gas pump automatically shuts or clicks off. The fuel splashes on the person fueling the car, the car itself, and onto the ground. This happens repeatedly, not just a single occurrence. Have tried different gas pumps, slowing the pump when it gets to almost full, and finally now just not filling up completely due to safety concerns of fuel spilling onto ground/driver/vehicle. Date given is most recent occurence, while it has been happening for over 6 months.

My gas tank overflows every time I fill it. It does not recognize when it is full and stops pumping. It makes the noise it if finished pumping and when I pull out the gas handle it overflows with gas down the side of my Jeep. My vehicle was stationary when filling it every time.
