    This has happened to me many times. I now listen for that (getting close to being full sound) and reference my gallons pumped as I start backing off on the fuel handle...dang it still happens sometimes. I now make it a point to only fill-up when I'm on my way home from work so I can wash up afterwards.

  • Just purchased my Unlimited and if I leave the pump catch engaged at the highest flow rate it will spill out on the ground at the end of fueling. Have had good luck disengaging the catch near the end of fill-up and putting on the slowest fill rate. Have not attempted to actually fix the problem.

    when i top up the fuel tank gas splashes on my hand, feet and the pavement. the dealership said this is due to a faulty check valve in the gas tank and that this would cost approx. $1350 to replace the tank as the check valve cannot be removed from the tank. because i thought it was a problem with the gas pumps at the fuel stations i did nothing about it until i read about this type of problem on the internet. i had hoped there was a recall as this is a big environmental problem. so far no recall. due to cost i have not had my tank replaced. i no longer top up the tank ,only filling it part way to avoid the blow back.
