I have the issue of fuel blow back on my 2006, when filling the tank. 12,000 miles on the vehicle.
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.
