Had a quarter tank when I went to pick it up, but the salesman rode with me to a gas station next door and put $15 more in it, so I wound up with half a tank. Woo.

OTOH, I forgot to tell them to leave their dealership sticker(s) off but when they were prepping it for me they neglected to put them on.

Apparently I got shafted. I had a $40 fuel fee in my deal.

I do find it a bit low class that Chrysler themselves don't top it off immediately or at least have the dealership do it and reimburse. These things ain't cheap.

In my small town I have purchased many vehicles from the local dealer. I have always received a full tank be it a new or used purchase.
I have even been employed by this dealer several years ago, probably the nicest boss I have ever had and I have had some good ones.
After many GMC's, Chevys (cars and trucks) and now my first Jeep, a JKU Sahara, we don't even talk about price and I still wind up with a better deal than most of the ones I see on this forum. It pays to have a history with a dealer that you can trust.

We only got a half tank, but I didn't care! The deal I got on our 2014 JK more than made up for the difference! I purchased it new and for cheaper than a used 2012 with way more miles! I kept looking in the mirror waiting for the dealer to come chasing us saying they made a mistake! Lol! But, we did have an awesome experience with the dealer and I would recommend them any day! That's saying lots seeing I hate dealerships! This purchase was the best I've ever done!

I always get a full tank of gas or I don't take it off the lot. I even got a full tank of gas on my 80 gallon tank for the motorhome.

Only a partial fill on our 2013. However, we did save nearly $1,000 on sales tax by buying it from a dealer in a different state. I guess that fills up the tank a few times.

The best welcome to the wrangler world was having the gas light come on during my 4 mile test drive, with 19 miles on the odometer. Had a good laugh with the sales guy about that being the total range between fill ups. They filled it up for me when I picked it up at least.

Just got my jeep three weeks ago. Dealer first dead they would only cover 7 gallons. When they forgot to detail it when I picked it up they filled the tank because of their mistake. Was OK with me since I was on the trail trashing it 4 days later.

Pretty close to a full tank, and it had 180 miles on it. The minivan I turned in had less than a quarter of a tank and 180,000 miles on it so I think I made out ahead.

First time in 5 new vehicles I have not gotten a full tank of gas. Needless to say even though I got a decent deal from the stealership on final cost I will not be buying from them again. The free gas wasn't the only issue with this particular dealership either. They couldn't get my leaking door fixed, I eventually had to fix it myself after 3 attempts by them.

Way too many dealerships out there IMO to screw people over even on something so minor as a free tank of gas they should be bending over backwards to please their customers. This will be the 2nd stealership I have blacklisted and likely wont be the last.

I also pitched a fit with mine. First off I had worked all night and told the girl I would be there at 10am to get it. She she no problem all the paperwork would be drawn up, jeep would be washed and ready to roll. Nothing was done. So I while waiting on the finance manager to draw up papers she said she was taking it around back to wash and have filled up. Even an hr after I'd signed papers she still hadn't brought it around front. So I walked my happy ass thou the shop and found it stuck in a bay, nothing done to it. Got in it and left. She didn't even call me till later that afternoon! Told her my piece of mine and she said that she couldn't put but 10 gallons in it. The light came on only 20 miles down the road. I've been leaving bad marks when they email me with them "How was you experience" surveys. I'll never, ever go back to that dealer.

That being said, I worked at a dealer when I was in school. Washing em, oil changes, ect. Every vehicle sold was filled up, fresh oil change (on a used) and detailed regardless if it was a 50k new one or a 3k used one. It was basically my job to make sure all that was done prior to delivery. That dealership is dead and gone now. Got closed in GM bankruptcy thing. It truly was a good down to earth no BS hometown dealership. I seen the owner do several good deeds in the couple of years I worked there. It was sad to see it closed after being opened for over 60 years.

My 2014 from Troncalli Jeep in Cumming GA came with a full tank (filled it on test drive).
They did fib about the number of free oil changes though. Said they'd "give" me one. It was a different dealer that let me know that I got 4 free ones with a new Jeep these days.

Nope. Less than 1/4 tank. But then again the dealership's front door only slid open part way, plus you had to walk right up to it for the sponsor to activate. When I almost walked into the door, salesman said they were tying to save money on air conditioning. I actually thought it was an aggressive sales ploy to shake the confidence (instead I stopped and glared at him with the you-gotta-be-kidding-me look). When I got the car with a 1/4 tank I realized they were just cheap. Same effect either way, my radar was up when they went cheap/aggressive with the trade.
