Jeep wont take eve a half gallon of gas..Help!

I'm having all sorts of trouble...well anyway I mentioned in an earlier post that I think something hit the piece of metal tube that comes out of my gas tank and connects to the rubber filler hose..well I had gas leaking out of where the tube meets the tank.The was dented.I put some steel hardener stuff on it and it seemed to stop the leak.lier as I was driving around I ran out of gas(gauge is broken)I always have my red can of gas in the back and the jeep wouldnt let me put much started overflowing.I jumped back in and she started up just fine.I only got about 2 blocks before I ran out of gas again.I poured more in slowly.It started overflowing and I waited a minute.I could see the gas inside my filler hole..level.Well I'm wondering what the hell is going on.Its snowing today and its got real cold.Could that be the culprit?I want to be able to drive without having to stop every two blocks to refill!

If knowledge=power and time=money.. please donate all your time and knowledge to my jeep!

are you sure none of that liquid steel stuff got inside the tube? or inside the vent?

maybe your vent line got pinched off, there shouyld be a larg hose and a smaller hose, as gas goes into the large hose, the displaced air is pushed out of hte smaller hose, or something like that.

I hope you dont have to commute far like that!

Joey- look at your vent line. My kinda was doing the same thing for a while. It ended up that it had just a little goo in it.
