AT AROUND THE 74,000 MILE MARKER, MY GAS TANK BEGAN SPEWING OUT GASOLINE UPON FILLING UP AT THE GAS STATION. THE TANK HOLDS ROUGHLY 17.5 GALLONS, AND THE NOZZLE (UP TO THIS POINT) WOULD ALWAYS AUTOMATICALLY SHUT OFF UPON A FULL TANK WHEN AT THE PUMP. NOW, WHEN THE TANK IS NEARING FULL, THE FUEL SPILLS OUT OF THE GAS TANK, LEAKING GASOLINE ALL OVER THE SIDE OF THE VEHICLE, ON MY HANDS, SHOES, CLOTHES AND GROUND. THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND AVOID THIS ISSUE IS TO ESTIMATE A CUT-OFF POINT IN WHICH TO STOP PUMPING FUEL AT AROUND THE 17.0 GALLON MARK, WHICH IS STILL VERY HARD TO DO WITHOUT THE SPILLAGE OCCURRING AND OFTEN LEAVES ME WITH A PARTIAL FILLUP TO AVOID GETTING SOAKED IN GASOLINE. AS OF 4 DAYS AGO, MY GASCAP AND CHECK ENGINE INDICATOR LIGHTS CAME ON. I'VE FULLY REFUELED 3 TIMES SINCE THEN AND TIGHTENED THE GAS CAP AND THE LIGHTS HAVE NOT DISAPPEARED. I OFTEN SUFFER HEADACHES FROM THE GASOLINE FUMES THAT I CARRY BACK INTO THE VEHICLE ON MY HANDS, CLOTHES AND FEET FROM THE GAS SPILLAGE THAT OCCURS WHEN I FILL UP. THIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE VERY COMMON AMONGST JEEP OWNERS BASED ON THE AMOUNT OF FORUMS I'VE FOUND ONLINE.
