Fill er up????

Greetings Brothers & Sisters,
My 06 has developed a strange new behavior.... it refuses to eat!

When I go to the pumps, I can not put gas into the tank "at regular speed".... I must "trickle" the gas into the tank.....a 10 minuet job, to fill the tank....

Have any of you experienced this? My guess, yes I said guess, it that the breather hose between the gas tank and the filler is somehow blocked... is there a filter that needs to be cleaned/replaced? Is the hose known to collapse??

Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I have kinda the same issue when I put the pump all the way in the filler, it keeps stopping. If I pull the pump out enough for some air to escape then it works as normal.

How long have you had this Jeep? Maybe a PO did the fuel filler hose mod and left the hose kinked... ??

Do a search very common problem.You may have to loook on other Jeep sites. There is a fix using a GM filler hose.

It's the factory anti-syphon design. The fix is a GM filler neck or some such. I just have them fill it on slow, but it doesn't take 10 minutes. If you try letting the nozzle sit further out while filling you'll likely gain some flow rate.

I cannot put gas in at regular speed because it will come back out at high speed. I just set the nozzle at the slow setting and relax. No fuss, no muss.

Thank you all....
I have had the Jeep about 1 year now.... it just started it about 2 - 3 weeks ago...
I will look into the GM system. I do move the gas nozzle out, but still get the same results. So I have been hand holding the nozzle at a trickle, way below the first "auto" notch .... It does take quite a while...
Again, Thank you

If its a new issue I might be inclined to do some investigatory disassembly to see what's up, just to be sure before I bought anything.

Pumping gas on the lowest setting gives you more.. pumping on high causes vapors to ecaspe back into the gas station tanks. Just a tip

Just make sure you follow the links advice on trimming the gm hose length. Mine kinked until I trimmed the hose like he said.
