 On my dodge caliber, every time that i put gas in the car and fill it up the gas will back flush out of the gas tank when the gas pump nozzle turns off. this causes gas spills on my car and on the ground at the gas station. i brought this to the attention of the dealership and they told me to not fill up my gas tank all of the way and that they have this same situation happening on many of their vehicles. *tr
