fuel fill issue

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has rejected a recall of 2007-08 Jeep Wranglers, according to a David Shepardson article in the Detroit News, after Chrysler agreed to institute a lifetime warranty issue on 135,000 Wranglers made from March 2007 to March 2008. If customers complain that fuel "backfired" or spilled during a normal gas fillup, dealers are to inspect and, if needed, repair the inlet check valve. The NHTSA stated that, while there were a large number of complaints, possibly due to publicity over the issue, warranty claims indicated a lower rate of problems than cars recalled for this issue. There have been 217 complaints, while 223,000 Wranglers were made during the 2007 and 2008 model years. The issue, according to Chrysler, is the use of fuel with more than 10% ethanol. This can cause damage to the inlet check valve, leading to fuel spilling out when..

I got tired of getting such spill and called Jeep today. "They will call me back" and have started a report file on me.

Will post when I find out what that means.

Unable to decipher j33s post above.

Update on MY "resolution":
got a ticket # assigned from the post relating to the 'fuelletter.jpg' in another thread, lost track of it right now.

The important news is, the local dealer called me back asserting mine is a 'extended warranty claim' and has ordered the parts, including a new tank and collar as well as the 'inlet chock valve'.

I asked if this was out of my pocket or all warranty...which he again stated it was the repair process Chrysler told them to do.

It will take about 3 weeks to get the tank here he says. Then a day install.

Will see and report progress.

Unless you're all bored with this issue.
