Just called the dealer, this is under full warranty. Bad part it is on backorder, but looks like it will be getting fixed soon!

Also, off topic, but if anyone has a gas cap light that will not go off, and it isn't the gas cap, check the gasket between the ESIM switch and the EVAP canister. I didn't have one there, and adding one solved that problem as well. Now my Jeep is problem free.
Yes, no charge even though it's a 10. There's only a TSB for 07 and 08. There is no recall. I've been a customer for years so maybe they're just taking care of it, I don't know.

Glad both of you are getting it taken care of free of charge. I don't have a regular dealership that I frequent (just bought my jeep, and not real fond of where I bought it from - which I took them to the cleaners, but still don't really like them).

Not sure if others are still having this problem, however my 2013 JKUR is at the dealer overnight getting the tank replaced. One time gas overflowed all over the back of the Jeep and the ground, several other times it seemed to just spit out gas when I topped off the tank. I have since stopped topping it off and it hasn't happened however when the Dealership checked it out today they said there was an issue. The Dealership didn't give me any issues about doing this, just said there was an issue and ordered the part over night.

Why would you top it off? Never, ever, ever do that. Not on a JK anyway............. It *WILL* overflow...

When it happens when you dont top it off, is a problem.....

I fuel mine up very slowly so it doesnt do it. If i full blast force feed it until it shuts off, it goes all over the place...

My 08 JKU did it every time if I filled it until the pump shut it off it would piss all over the ground.

You should be able to leave the pump handle on max-fill and it should fill up without issue. Now it will puke if you try to fill beyond that point.

If it pukes (like my '08 did), the dealer will replace the tank out of warranty (check/rollover valve on tank). Call the 1-800 # to initiate a repair authorization.

my '13 JKUR has been doing this. The last 4 times i've refueled. Fuel splashes out at initial re-filling. It takes a dozen initial slight squeezes of the pump (which all end up splashing the fender and ground). 10 minutes later it will fill ok- but no rhyme or reason to the fix. A big mess.

Called the Chrysler number and It is getting looked at Thursday. They will also check the heat (not very hot) and the oil-cooler lines (recall).

There's a re-designed fuel fill tube that fixes the problem. They used to replace the tank/check valve. With the new part it will not spit up fuel, even leaving the pump handle on max. It still shouldn't be topped off.

When gas goes in, air needs to come out. Your breather valve (part of the fuel tank) isn't functioning properly. So air can't escape - this leads to fuel and air puking out the gas filler tube.

Contact Jeep, there's a free fix for this on most wranglers (past the warranty period)
They replace the tank.
I had this problem with my old SUV. The air intake valve would somehow plug with dirt. It was rather expensive to have it cleaned out and I guess it's not a fun job because no wanted to do it either. But once it was cleaned it was fine...until it plugged up yet again...
