Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty
I was told by a dealer that I needed to replace my entire gas tank due to an EVAP canister issue. I was only getting about 8mpg. I bought a new tank and installed it myself. Thinking that everything was going to work I pulled into a gas station and tried to fill my tank. When I started filling the tank the pump shut off right away and it took me nearly 40 mins to get even ten gallons into my tank. I tried different gas stations with the same result...
When you replaced the tank, did you check or replace the tank filler neck hose or the vent hose? That is where the issue is.

Well you troubleshooted the problem by yourself. When you put in gas it washed the filter off and your truck started. Your problem is just the fuel screen( or filter) located in the tank but you tank also needs to be flushed out to keep future occurances from happening. It is totally up to you. You can either just change the screen or change the fuel pump and it will come with a new screen. Price them both at the auto parts store and see the difference in price. It is recomended to let the professionals do this job just because of the easy to break fuel lines. But Whom ever diagnosed fuel pump and fuel filter did diagnosed it correctly. But most garages will not warrenty the job unless you change both the filter and the pump. WHEN YOU DO HAVE THE JOB DONE IT IS RECOMENDED TO HAVE LESS THAN A HALF OF A TANK OF FUEL BECAUSE WHAT EVER AMOUNT THAT IS IN THERE WILL BE REMOVED AND NEW FUEL PUT BACK IN. ALSO DONT LET THEM FILL IT UP FOR YOU UNTIL YOU KNOW THE AMOUNT THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE YOU PER GALLON. YOU SHOULD NOT PAY FOR MORE THAT $150.00 FOR LABOR AND WHATEVER THE PART COST. Me myself as a shade tree mechanic. I usually charge $100.00 plus parts. Good luck

Most gauges are set up this way to give you a bit of "margin" between "e" and stuck on the road.Sometimes this is set a bit too high but adjusting it is not worth the $. Additionally, there is generally about a gallon of fuel remaining in tank that the pump cannot reach. This protects you against most heavy debris (rust etc) and water that acumulates there (even in the most well maintained vehicles) which would otherwise easily enter the fuel system. As long as you are not running out at 1/4 tank or anything, you are OK.

That is possible, especially if your fuel filter was marginal to begin with. Change it and pour the contents of the old one into a glass jar If you see any water in there at the bottom, you will need to drop the tank. Otherwise, if it runs better, you are OK.
