    My 2008 Jeep Patriot just started (over the last 2 times I have filled up the gas tank) to click off the nozzle every 2-3 seconds.
    It takes me more than 10 minutes to fill my tank from empty !

    I have tried different stations and different pumps. I have positioned the nozzle every way possible --- pulled almost out to rotating all around. I hold the lever slow and even and it still keep shutting off !

    On-line solutions suggest things like --- kinked filler tube, gas tank problem (remove and replace $1,000), charcoal canister plugged, and bad “roll-over” (check-valve) valve in the filler tube. This is CRAZY ! It is obviously a VENTING problem, but there has to be a simple solution ! I’m thinking of shoving 3-4 ft. of hose down the tank filler tube while filling with gas.

    I am not under warranty and it is not any recall for this year and model.
    Have you heard of this problem ? Do you know anyone who has had this problem and how it is fixed ?
    What do you suggest ?
