Add me to this list. Mine just started doing it last fill up (took forever since I had to use about 1/4 open on the pump nozzle).

I believe fordfan610 is correct about that. Anything can be fixed, there is just the little matter of how much time it will take and how much it will cost in parts (if they know their stuff). I have the strong feeling that IF they want to keep the buyer's business and IF they think they cannot fix it, they should just give the buyer a new vehicle. Cost of keeping a customer versus cost of getting a new customer, probably about the same.I just wanted to comment on how crazy this sounds. Why can't they fix it? They are the dealer with thousands of dollars worth of tools and hundreds of hours of training. I have worked on cars all my life and this does not make any sense. If most of the Renegades are filling up fine and there are just a handfull that are not then there has to be a simple issue with the few that have problems. I think the dealers mechanics just need to take some time and really go over the fill section and hose alignment, compare them to a working vehicle. There has to be something there that can be seen or measured. Could be a simple mold problem on the fill part.
But to tell you its not fixable is crazy. Come on Dealers, step up and fix our problems.
Yes: 84cj makes sense. Whatever the cause, it's just a matter of physics.Thats nuts. Sounds like a venting issue. Fuel goes in, air needs to come out. If it can't come out, it fills really slow.
But it has that cool spider that says "ciao baby", what else do you want?It sounds like lowest bidder on the capless filler has bitten some people in the ass.
Mechanics aren't allowed to take any time to do anything that hasn't been assigned to them.I think the dealers mechanics just need to take some time and really go over the fill section and hose alignment, compare them to a working vehicle. <snip> Come on Dealers, step up and fix our problems.
Sorry to hear you are experiencing this concern, Johanna Sawyer. We suggest having your dealer inspect this concern if you have not done so already. We are also available via private message if you would like any additional assistance during that process.2019 Jeep Renegade just bought 3k mileage and I’m having same problem so whatever fix 2018 had didn’t fix the issue.
I have a 2017 Renegade (15000 miles), and can't fuel up at the gas station. The problem developed about 14000 miles. I have posted a video of the problem on Jeeps Facebook page. The fuel nozzle shuts off immediately after squeezing it. I have tried different angles and positions to make it work (still a flaw regardless of finding a work-around). If I find a reduced/variable pressure nozzle it sometimes works (takes 10-15 minutes to fill up, but this means I can't travel anywhere based on the concerns that I won't find that nozzle again while en route. My Renegade is still under warranty and I currently have a case number open with Jeep (35023324, reference if you have the same issues). They do not currently have a fix action yet. They have replaced the gas tank and the fuel fill line. From my knowledge, this is a design flaw and has occurred in other years and other vehicle types based on my own research since 2015. My case is more extreme than most I have found with similar problems. I have been told by a dealership that this problem is not fixable but, I do not agree and neither does Jeep. I have narrowed the fix action to a few options: the vent line is blocked (unlikely); the charcoal canister is not properly venting gas fumes and is causing back pressure and needs to be replaced or is leaking charcoal and blocking venting in the T line or what is causing back pressure (maybe); the roll over valve has a design flaw and is causing problems with the fill process (very likely).
Based on what knowledge I have, if you removed the roll over valve, the problem goes away. I have found many people who fixed this re-occurring problem by doing just that from my own research. Removing a safety feature can void the warranty, so I can't do this without a dealership performing this action. The charcoal canister is used to vent fums from the tank back into the engine. The vent from the tank will T from the tank with the other vent going to your fill valve in a separate line. One person suggested jumping on the bumper hard to bounce the vehicle enough clears the roller so that you can fill the tank and surprisingly it does work (temporarily), but you have to do it every time you need to fill up. It will still shut off during the fill process and you need to jump on it again when it locks up. I refuse to look like a monkey jumping up and down on my bumper for the rest of my time with this vehicle.
I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. My only regret is that my wife didn't let me research this vehicle before buying it. Don't get me wrong it is fun to drive, but not worth the hassle required to keep it running.
There has been a lot of frustration that I have seen and I wanted to try and be at least somewhat detailed. Please let me know if you found a better fix action to this problem that doesn't involve removing a safety feature. Also please let me know if you are experiencing the same issues or have any different theories. I will update on how the dealership will try to fix this problem.
Hi maggie,I have a brand new 2019 Renegade Altitude edition...and I have this same problem so I guess it hasn’t been addressed? Dealership never mentioned any renegades having problems and my last Renegade (2016 Latitude) never had this problem. The new model has the 2.4L zero emissions engine and the the 2016 did NOT have the zero emissions feature...could this be part of the problem?? I’m tired of having to do math at the gas pump to figure out when my tank is actually full.
