I was going to guess he wasn't from an English-speaking country but his profile says he's from Virginia so...

I assume you're talking about when refueling, the pump does not shut off in time to avoid gas spilling out of the filler. It's a common problem with TJs and JKs, caused by E10 fuel ruining valves inside our fuel tanks. I believe Chrysler has been willing to replace JK fuel tanks without much trouble, unlike us TJ owners who are largely out of luck.

Even though no action was required by the NHTSA, Chrysler has announced a lifetime warranty program for 2007-2008 Jeep Wranglers built from March 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008 to address the fuel spill-back issue. This free warranty program applies to roughly 135,000 vehicles and owners will be notified via mail.

Sorry for my incomplete sentence. You have guessed the problem. Mine is a 2009 so no luck with them paying for repair.
Dealer was asking $800 for it and I do have a extended warranty but they said if it is due to fuel quality they might not cover it. They only pay for mechanical issues.

the above is true i took mine to the dealer about the issue it is cover under the factory lifetime emmissions warranty as it has to do with how the tank vents also they ordered the part for me agave me a mental rental and fixed him up no problems since than and not a penny out of pocket
and im not the original owner

Under the emissions warranty? Well hell, we should be able to get that for TJs too, I'd think...

Update - extended warranty folks are covering the tank replacement. I think Jeep needs to address this issue for all Wranglers.

Nice. Hey I'm going to move this over to the JK section rather than the Communications & Electronics spot you're posting in.

Here:
Contact Jeep

From a year ago:

I sent an email about the fuel spit up yesterday afternoon.

Got a call from Ralph, customer service.

Told me it’s covered. He also told me I bought 7 Dodge/Chrysler/Jeeps jeeps from them. (how did he know that?)

HE SAID UNLIMITED LENGTH ON FIX FOR THIS, no 3/36 etc.

On mine – 2008:

X-32 Inlet Check Valve.
Also, new trans cooler lines and over temp sensor, other crap.

Said dealer would fix, gave me case #, etc – no problem.
Click the link and send in your problem. You need the VIN. Miles, etc.

Note:
I think if you mention a fuel spitup on a 2009 they might fix it. Mention x-32 Inlet Check Valve (on a 4 yr old Jeep)

Our '08 Sahara Unltd had this problem from time to time. I believe there was a recall issued for it.

Update - picked up the car from the shop with a new tank. Had to pay 100 for deductible and the extended warranty paid for the rest. Where is Chrysler in all these? Glad I bought the extended warranty as this could have cost more than 700.

Sorry for my poor selection of word...after the tank is full, and the pump has stopped, some gas spills out of the tank. They said there is a valve in the tank that is not working. So tank had to be changed.
Check the youtube, there are many segment on this.
