Im not quite exactly sure if this should go into general discussion or tech so i thought it fit better here:
I just recently bought a YJ and everytime i go to fill it up it doesnt automatically cut off when the tank gets full... It wants to continue to "fill" the tank and overflow everywhere... Any idea as to why this is happening? I try to put the nozzle as far in as possible but it never fails to overflow... Thanks for the help in advance~!
have you tried filling at more than one station? seems pretty obvious, but sometimes the simplest things make a difference.
the shutoff function usually has to do with the fuel nozzle, at the backpressure going in to the little hole under the nozzle is what shuts off the pump.
that being said, I would look at your lines to the tanks to make sure there are no crimps or blockages that could make the gas barf out like that.
Ya i did try multiple stations... But i will check to see if there are any crimps in the line.. Does the filler hitting the tailight have anything to do with it maybe? sorry maybe a dumb question but if it isnt sealing all the way the backpressure is not going into that little hole....??
Its not fun when your standing right next to nozzle, daydreaming, and then all of a sudden it clicks and before you know what happened your pants are suddenly wet. Its always nice driving home reeking of gasoline

mine is like that also, but i also get a special little surprise, if i fill up, and then only drive like 4 miles back home, then the next day i notice a few drips under the gas cap...take it off, and i have niagra falls under pressure come rolling out the back, usually a good gallon or two, i think it may be the heat, plastic tank, and then when the sun hits it the gas expands quicker than the tank.
