I have an 07 compass and have the same problem. I wonder if there has been anyone that has taken the tank off and inspected it to see if it has a fix? I had a quote of $1000 for the tank and labor.
that sound cheap to the local dealer quoting me $1700 tank + labor :eek:mg:

Last 3 times putting gas in,,...........no problem, makes me wonder if its the cold weather we have had? Beats me......
my wifes 07 had teh same thing happen, on really hot days it filled up fine at the pump but below 70* starts getting funny and now being that it is between 30-50 degrees every day here i have to fill it with 5 gal containers and a funnel and even then the fuel will still burp up out of the neck if i go too fast.

all of this while i have the tank "free venting" (removed the vent line temporarily at the back of the tank) im lost :confused::confused:

Fuel fill problem

Hi guys...i have the same problem with my compass 2011 limited...i filled it up today and discovered that if you put the pump nozzle in as far as it will go, then RAISE THE NOZZLE UP, it fills without any issue.
During filling, i lowered the nozzle and it started to cut out again, as a lot of you have experienced...i raise it again, and all is fine.

Try this method...hope it works for you to.

Raising the pump nozzle may have lifted the venturi pipe out of whatever was blocking it originally. Did the nozzle shut off appropriately with this method?

hi again wheelin...i was just thinking a little more of this venturi pipe you mentioned....maybe it as it should be?...maybe its a feature of the fuel tank in this model. a "deliberate sealing plug", of sorts, but not mentioned in the stats of the vehicle. what do you think?.

The venturi pipe is a small pipe that run alongside the gas nozzle and it's not part of the car. Once the gas in the tank submerges the pipe, the gas flow shuts off. For some reason, the Compass is blocking it.

I have a Compass 2010, this problem only started a couple years ago. No matter what position I hold the filler nozzle it trips off. I feed a plastic hose all the way down into the tank and felt no obstructions. I am ready to pull the tank myself, but don't know what to look for: is something plugged, broken, or worn out? I have not tried the 5 gallon can and funnel yet for "fill speed" as compared to the station filler "trip" nozzle; this is pretty frustrating but not yet worth the Dealers Quote of $700 to $1200 just to look with an "We don't know, we'll drop the tank and see" attitude. SOMETHING changed that cause a filling problem, Chrysler Engineers must have some idea?

Hi VegasPMC,

If you decide to visit your local dealership I'd be happy to follow up with them for you if needed. Just PM our page with your VIN and let me know!

My Compass is ten years old (2007) and the tank has failed. Replacing a canister has not helped. I'm getting a new tank ($1200). Having the gas pump nozzle cut off, cut off, cut off was driving me crazy.

I knew there were some issues when I bought it.

The tailgate light switch was bad so I disconnected it. Issue solved.

Rear wheel hubs were loud, replaced those.

Then it became difficult to fill up. Tried replacing the canister no dice. Did some research and tried blowing the vacuum lines out. That set off the CEL and two codes popped up P0171 p2066. Bad fuel sending unit side B.

New fuel pump side A you can get from $50 to $100 Side B sending unit is more expensive $150 to $200. Shopped around bought a set of used for $71 from a recycler. Took about an hour. Problem solved.

I had this issue on my 2009 compass. It would burp fuel back out of the filler neck and onto you if you put the nozzle at full blast, meaning you had to fill it very slowly. It started doing this shortly after I bought it about a year ago. Since then I've replaced the filler neck and that fixed the issue up until very recently where as soon as it reached below 40 degrees, I started to have the issue of the nozzle shutting off immediately as soon as I start fueling. Im not sure what could be causing the fueling system to start doing this. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have a problem putting gas in my Compass. The gas nozzle shuts off if I put the gas in too fast. No matter how far in or out I put the nozzle the gas nozzle clicks off after a short time. It takes forever to put a few gallons in. We rarely fill it up...

Is it a vent problem?

Does anyone else have a similar problem?

What must I do to fix this?

Thanks!

It's the vent most likely
