Well, gas is supposed to come out this 'vent' hose when the tank is full to shut off the automatic gas filler nozzles. I believe that is the main purpose for this line.
That is actually one of the 'fixes' to turn some YJ 15 gallon gas tanks into a 20 gallon gas tanks. They have the hose set deep enough that gas pours out the vent tube at the 15 gallon mark, folks move it up and can put in 20 gallons.
That said, maybe you just need to slow down the rate of fill when it gets near full or find a gas station that has those splash guards (made just for this problem) on their pump nozzles. Gas blows back out of most gas tank fillers if you don't slow the pump down near the end. My CJ's sure will...
