Gas leak

My girlfriend has an 07 jku x. I was wondering if anyone would know why gas would pour out from when the nozzle goes in. Once we finish filling the tank the nozzle clicks off and then we pull it out and a surge of gas comes out. We aren't trying to top it off it just comes out. Any ideas?

Yes, there was a recall on the fuel tank. When I had my 2008 JK I received a letter from Chrysler to have it replaced for free at the dealer. My dealer replaced it free. Did you buy it used?

Find a dealership and tell them about the recall and they should give you a new fuel tank.

OK it's going in on Wednesday I'll let them know then. Hopefully they'll fix it for free. My luck it won't happen. Thank you much.

Re: Gas leak

Good luck. I am surprised the previous owner didn't take care of it. I hope they don't charge you because the service departments are fully aware of this recall.
I waited under 2 hours for mine and it was done.
