Sloshing sound w/ full tank of gas?

I'm pretty sure I only noticed this after filling the tank all the way up a few days ago (found a place offering a great price on gas), and it's faint and sounds like it's coming from the back of the vehicle, so I'm pretty sure it's the gas in the full gas tank.

I've only heard it a couple of times, and mostly when the vehicle shakes back/forth/stops from going over a bump at a very slow speed. But I was surprised when I heard it because I remembered reading before about a TSB issued for the 2011s for this very thing.

Anyway, has anyone else experienced this (on any year, but particularly 2014)?

Haven't heard it on the Jeep, but the MDXs do it.
Somewhere on self serve gas pumps they usually (or used to) have a small note saying 'Do Not Top Off the Tank'.

Yes, this is TSB for this problem for 2011. I have tank replaced on my 2011 JGC and problem is gone. I don't know if this TSB is only for 2011 or 12, 13, 14.

Re: Sloshing sound w/ full tank of gas?

I hear sloshing in my 2012's tank after filling it up. It's kinda faint, though, and doesn't really bother me.

Prior to the TSB, the sloshing in the 2011's was pretty loud. The new tanks have increased baffling that muffles it a bunch, but it's still there. The 2011 TSB just says to replace the tank with one of the newer tanks that are baffled.
