I don't know about TJs but JKs have had a problem with the backflush valve, they even had a recall on them, I think. Not sure how hard they are to replace, but I bought an '07 JKU last year and it did it right off the bat. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the entire gas tank (said it was easier than replacing the valve).
Hopefully it's easier on TJs.

That's a very common problem with TJs. Someone has posted a fix for it in the forum. I will see if I can find the thread and post a link for you.

Thanks for the input. I'll have to try it out. Didn't realize it was such a big issue
