NISSAN XTERRA Fuel System, Gasoline Storage Tank Assembly Filler Pipe And Cap problems : 1.
Refueling Vehicle Results In Severe Backsplash Of fuel Out Of The Filler Tube, Most Likely Due To Inadequate Vapor Space Venting. Refueling Even At Very Slow Rates Resulted In fuel Spillage. This Presents An Exposure Hazard And Possible Fire Hazard. nissan Corrected The Problem By Replacing The Fual Tank Assembly. The Replacement fuel Tank Has Corrected The Problem. However, They Did Not Issue A Recall Even Though Other Vehicles Of This Type Possess The Same Problem, In Addition To Their Pickup Truck Based On The Same Chasis. They Apparently Were Aware Of The Problem, And Had Coded It As A “hard Refueling” Problem. In My Opinion As A Process Hazard Safety Engineer, This Problem Should Have Resulted In The Issuance Of A Recall.
