Default gas tank issue
I have talked about this on other forums with no sucess.

History

2006 lj

tanks over flows when ever filled up

Not sure what causes this??

I pulled the inner fender and checked the vent and fill hose for kinks damage- everything was fine.

When ever we fill up the tank top top it will splash about .25 gal out and down my flare(grrrrrrrrr)

I thought the vent hose was kinked at first but nope. possibly a problem with the roll over check ball system?

Any ideas are great

Thanks

Tyler

Aimee's Liberty does the same thing...

the most common answer on the internet seems to be the check valve that is built into the tank isn't working correctly and the entire tank needs to be replaced.

This is strange .... because the sensing hole on the pump nozzel is what tells the pump to shut off ....

On my 2001 TJ, after the nozzel shuts off, I can get another gallon into the tank by pulling the nozzel
out a little at a time .....
