JeeperJake I'm several months after the dealer fixed mine.

And their replacement works perfectly.

I was suspicious about actual repair, so I went underneath with a flash light. There I found evidence of all the tank skid plate having been removed. And the symptom disappeared.

No cost to me.

Happy Jeepster here.

jeepydg14 I still have yet to bring it to the dealer to get it fixed though....

jeepydg14 I have this problem with my 07 JK, I got a letter in the mail from chrysler in March saying its a recall in certain models.

repauli1 Mine pukes and spits everytime I overfeed it! Gotta chk out recall

TruckerATK Mine does it everytime. Spits back about 1/2 gallon. Sucks!!

Muxi It happened to me once with 2011 Rubicon but only with one station's particular nozzle. They deducted the estimated cost of the spilled fuel with profuse apologies. Since then no other spills from other stations so I charged it to a defective nozzle. Hopefully. I use 100 octane fuel, the only fuel without ethanol, should I mix it up with e10 occasionally?

jeep2007 My 07 sahara did it too.. Took it to the Dealer and they replaced the gas tank. Have never had a problem since. One trick i did do before it was replaced , was to fill it up and stop about 2 gallons shy of full. Then slowly fill the final 2 gallons at turtle speed and it wouldnt spit back..Hope that helps :-)

themoneypit i traded in my 07 in jan and a week later got a recall letter pertaining to this issue. 2 years of pissing gas all over the side of my jeep and after I trade it in, i get a recall letter. Never had it happen on my '11

JeeperJake re: Nature of fuel problem
My 08 burped back up on each fill....out of my hands since in Oregon we have to rely on the professionals in the gas station to do that. Whether they stood there (almost never) or came back running when it cut off automatically, there would be a little splash/burp of fuel down the side and sometimes onto the ground.

As explained to me, there's some kind of 'inline overflow filter' that is affected by the wonder fuel Ethanol.

In any case, Jeep replaced my tank no charge.

No problem in the couple months since then.

Could be a BIG deal for the company depending on a lot of unknowns.

I was pleased how Jeep stepped up and gave 'extended warranty' on my used rig.

I have the exact same problem but it is on my 2007 Dodge Nitro. It didn't start doing that to me until recently when I hit around 32,000 miles. Now it does it every time so I have to guess how many gallons will get me close to being full and stop. If it clicks then I'm getting gas everywhere.

At first I thought it was me or the gas stations problem.
After trying several different gas stations and having it happen every time I knew there was something wrong. I had never heard anything about this problem until I started searching the internet. I will be filing my complaint soon and contacting chrysler. Hopefully they will fix it as it could potentially be a fire hazard.

banditman The Day I bought my 2010 my salesman filled the tank before I took delivery and it did it to him. The next time I filled it up it did it to me. After these two episodes it hasn't happened again.
06-02-2011 06:09 PM
Haf Bringing back old stuff but I had a similair issue in my 09...wouldn't fill up, acted like always full and the times it didn't it overflowed all over my boots....been doin it for about 8 months, finally got her to the dealer and they are puttin in a new tank :thumbsup

Thracks I have a 2007 JK and it does this EVERY time I fill up. I have to look at my gauge and guess how much space there's left in the tank when filling up so I can cut off the nozzle manually and avoid a spill.

Unless they change the design, the problem could certainly come back. Mine is an '05, so I'd get stuck paying for a new tank. I just either don't fill the tank all the way or go VERY slow when I think it's getting close to full. This works most of the time. I've also had the problem go away for a while, and then come back.

to help all others on this topic. have the dealer tell you the part number that they replaced your tank with. This gives the ones with problems ammo (and takes the guess work out of the dealer)

This is not isolated to the US...

ALL of your gas stations are required to have the boot cover on the nozzle, when you insert the nozzle into your filler, this boot thing (that no one can explain its real function or use), doesn't allow the nozzle to fully seat into position. Since it is not allowed to fully seat, you will get that spray. this is not any of the automakers design faults. This is the fault of the gas companies NOT looking at the design of the boot cover properly. Up here in the Great White North, we do not use these boots (again, no one can explain the purpose of these enough to force us to use them)..

so in conclusion. you have two options to cure this.

* ensure that the nozzle is pushed all the way in, then, stand there and hold it in place (maybe this is the reason for the boot, they just hide behind other things)
* contact the gas station and insist that the owner takes a good, long hard look at the design. Anyone with a little bit of Engineering in them can easily see where the fault lies.

It is easy to blame the company that built your car, however it is not their place to correct problems that arise from a poorly designed nozzle boot..

I hope that this helps

I have just learned that CA required these boots to be installed to catch vapor???? I guess I can see that side of the story, but, instead of vapor they are now getting raw fuel spillage (yep, that includes the vapor). I also discovered (i do not know how true this is, so, it is hearsay) that the designer of the product is a stock holder with Shell ... this seems almost too much of a coincidence, so i am guessing that this is NOT true...

They have to spend a lot of money on lawyers and such, when in reality, it is the fault of the gas nozzle itself (see the rubber boot cover post in this thread). No other country requires these boot covers as they are useless and a waste of money. If you read into the complaints, they ALL stem from the USA only, oddly enough, the USA is the only country that requires the vapor boots on the nozzles.

on a side note. I just proved the theory (and got a lot of gas on me in doing so)


below test was completed in Vancouver, BC, two Rubicons (identical in year and design)

Jeep #1 (not mine)
* filled tank. nozzle stopped on its own, no spray
* Gas tank was full

Jeep #2 (mine
* placed nozzle so that it was not fully seated (replicating the boot)
* filled tank
* lots of gas, all over the place...nozzle finally stopped

so - get rid of the boot covers, or, push and hold the nozzle in place... super simple and doesn't need to recall vehicles.....

08 Jk

Hi everyone mine just started doing this the last few times so Im wondering if it has something to do with the cold temps. ? Ive only owned it since last
May but dont recall it ever happening in the summer months in Michigan.
Might just be coincidence but I drove it through all the Blue Ridge Pkwy , Smokies and back up 75 & didnt happen once, yet on a couple trips "Up North " this Winter its happened every time.
No its not after the first click it just pours out before it even clicks once !
02-23-2011 03:51 PM
Fweaky I have an 09 JK Sahara and when I first bought it I never had a problem but in the last six months it overflows every time I put gas in it.

amenendez_90 I have JKU 08 never had a problem,
Maybe a conspiracy to increase gas usage as a means to stimulate the economy……..
