Anyone have gas shoot back in their face while filling the tank. Very frustrating! How do you deal with it?

Is it a recall or a TSB? I thought it was a TSB, but I could easily be mistaken

Sorry...looked at my letter this morning from Chrysler in regards to gas blow back. It's a TSB, if you have blowback your dealership will replace stock tank for a new tank.

For free if you have warranty, not for free if you don't. Just clarifying for those that don't quite know what a TSB does for them.

The TSB extended the factory warranty to lifetime to cover this issue.. it should be replaced for free, inside or outside of warranty
