Question Help with Gas Leak

So everytime I fill my tank up now it spits some gas back out and runs down the side of the truck. It started doing it everyonce in a while and now it's doing it everytime I fill up. I've tried different gas stations to eliminate the pumps but that wasn't it. I've read on some jeep forums that it has to do with a valve at the top of the tank sticking and the only fix the dealer has for it is to replace the tank. So I guess my question is... is anyone else experiencing this issue? If so did you find a fix? I've also tried blowing out the lines to the tank and that didn't help. Last tank of gas I put some Lucas Oil Complete fuel system cleaner in the tank(on a side note that is some good stuff) and that didn't seem to help. It has also been pretty cold here in St. Louis if that might have anything to do with it. Any help is greatly appreciated especially since I just went over the 36,000 mile mark and not sure if this would be covered by the emissions warranty.

No to emissions warranty. Typically it is caused by a blockage in the vent on the gas tank. I had Dodge replace the tank on my 2010 at less than 1,000 miles due to that. You may want to go to the dealer and see if he will replace it, if not ask about "Good Will Repair". Chrysler can autherize Good Will Repairs especially in cases like this. If they refuse contact Chrysler Customer Service and try to work with them.
Good Luck as the tanks are not cheap.

Alright it's back!! So this all started last year during winter when it got real cold outside then as soon as it warmed up it went away. Well last week we started staying in the low to mid 30's and now it's back. Is there something/anything that would be freezing in my tank? I run mid-grade year round and occasionally top off with 93 octane if the price is right. Does anybody have any ideas?

FYI - Chrysler was not willing to swap out my tank last year at any kind of discount and they had the truck in the shop for a few hours but couldn't find anything.

Sorry about your returning problem.

I would pay close attention when filling up and stop when I would hear the sound of the gas coming up the fill tube. By now you should be able to know how much gas it takes to fill your tank from the fuel gauge.

Thanks Greg. That's pretty much what I do now, I've tried all of the tricks with the pump like pulling it out a little, turning it sideways and so on. Some days and/or pumps are worse than other. I can hear what sounds like horrible trapped air when pumping sometimes too and that's a guarantee it's gonna happen. I just wish I could figure out what and why something is causing this just in cold weather.

Do states have different gas blends for winters and summers?
