^^^^This. We did this on my sonís 06 LJ and it is still working as expected.

Bruce06Unltd I did the GM hose swap and it lasted a couple of months...I ended up removing it and putting the original back in and am just careful not to over fill. Maybe I will try dropping the tank and grinding down the check valve as seen on the video. Maybe ;-)

I did that, but it still eventually gave up and collapsed. However, $30 for about 6 years of use is pretty good, especially since the solution in the video hadn't been discovered yet when I did it.

Some of it is probably luck. Some of it is in the details of the installation.

toximus Watch the video Mukluk linked to.

I did it on one of mine last month. It completely fixed the problem. Took about an hour for the entire process and will save more than that waiting at the gas pump.

Sorry cant get details today
TSB #14-001-09 basically has you do a few tests with the evap system to rule out a blockage in either the evap hose or the cannister. Once the evap system is ruled out, fuel tank replacement is required.
Basically the roll over valve in the tank fails. a replacement tank is around 1000.00 not including labor.
Aside from mukluk's link above, there is also a fix using a GM hose which you can read about,

Mine has been doing it for a number of years, just haven't gotten around to addressing it yet.

Hardest part was getting the gasoline smell out of my hair (I skipped the step where you depressurize the fuel line).

Gas tank overflow when filling up

Anyone else have this problem? The guy pumping my gas said he sometimes sees this happening with Jeeps. When I'm filling up my gas tank, it tends to overflow/spill out when reaching capacity. Is it because of the high speed pumps? Sometimes I can mitigate it by slowing the speed of the gas coming from the nozzle when I'm approaching capacity, but sometimes it's hard to gauge.
