If you are getting a strong odor of fuel, this is indicative of having spark or air problems. To troubleshoot the issue, first open the air box and pull out the air filter. With the airbox open, start the Jeep. If the problem seems to have cleared up, replace the air filter.
If the problem persists, you may be experiencing problems with the distributor, plugs, or wires. Depending on when the last time you replaced the plugs was, I would start there. The proper plugs will be Champion 438 or the equivilent, with .035 gap. New plugs is always a good idea every 35k miles or so, and they are only about $15 for a set. If your old plugs are block, clumpy, or blistered it will definitely cause problems, but usually bad plugs indicates another problem worth getting checked out. Careful on the #1 plug, the boot is hard to get out of there if you have A/C.

SOURCE: extremly slow to fill with fuel.
The fuel tank vent tube may very possibly be stopped up, kinked, or internally collapsed, thereby not allowing for displacement of air as the fuel is being introduced. hope this helps

Check the alternator and see what charging voltage is... anything over 14.3 volts running should be suspect. If voltage is too high, it is possible that the computer is shutting down the engine to protect itself. I don't see any connection between the fuel tank problem though, unless while doing pump, someone accidentally grounded a hot lead and didn't think any damage had been done. This makes some sense, because the battery alone will lonly put out from 12-13volts, which go lower without alternator, till it reaches a point where voltage is insufficient to operate the ignition system. This is a "shot in the dark" and will likely lower my "rating" but I don't care about that... Try checking this... at least it points you in some direction rather than flailing around!!!
