When mine used to sit for awhile. All the fuel would drain back to the tank and it would take a minute to get it started while yelling at it and pumping the crap out of the pedal. Weird? or Just annoying

Are you using an electric fuel pump? You may need a check valve.

I just said it Did that as something it did when it sat for awhile. As the OP asked for weird things that happen when jeep sat. Not anymore as it doesn't do anything right now, My jeep needs more than a check valve.
