Has anyone experienced or solved a reluctant gas tank? Depending on the pump I can’t lock the handle in the on position (even on the first notch) or it shuts off immediately. Lucky for me the tank is small because I have to hold it at a low flow. Experimenting with different levels of insertion with no luck. That’s what she said.

I have noticed the same thing. There is one gas station by my house which it is impossible to pump gas on the JL. There is a second one that gives me no trouble. No sure if one has older or different pumps, but even different pumps at the one station that gives issues doesn’t help.

I had this happen to me for the first time last fill. (Canada) I normally hit up the chevron on my way home, but due to a collision on the road i had to detour and made it to an esso instead. With the fuel nozzle in, id pump 2-3 sec and then shutoff, and this was on a 10% full tank. i had to basically have the nozzle only 3/8" in the tank to get it to work. super weird. 2door sport S

LOL...YES. very rarely happened in my previous vehicles, but I've noticed it several times with the wrangle. Similar to another post, I actually had to leave a station once and change pumps another time.

So definitely happens way more than normal because I noticed it before I saw this post.

Same thing with me. Seems to happen with older gas pumps but definitely annoying when you have to hit up 2 or 3 different ones to fill the tank...jeep thing?

Absolutely, happens at most but not all pumps for me. But every single Wrangler I have ever owned (and it's a stupidly high number) has had the same problem, to some degree. It's a jeep thing!

is it a Jeep thing or is there an anti shipon filter in the line causing issues?

Well, to my defense if there is an anti siphon filter in the line, jeep put it there ... so it is still a jeep thing! :cwl:

All joking aside, I never thought of that, I always assumed it was something to do with the shape of the neck of the filler tube, but some type of filter could easily be the cause.

In my case, though, I've tried autofilling on the slowest setting and it still cuts off sometimes.

Definitely something going on with the filler neck. Won't gezinda
