    I have the same capless fuel tank on my Durango. I appreciate the convenience but have noticed one problem. On all my previous cars (none with capless tanks) I never had a problem with fuel dripping from the pump nozzle after removed from the tank. Yet, on my Durango it happens every time. I've learned to remove the nozzle and hold it there for a few seconds so the last drops of fuel can drip into the tank. This may have nothing to do with the capless design but I thought I'd mention it.

    Yea, I think it's more a function of the gas pump. Perhaps the design of the shutoff has changed because recently I've noticed more fuel dripping after I fill up. Sort of like when you stick a straw into a drink then put your thumb on the end and you can lift the straw out and the liquid stays in the straw. Feels like the pump shutoff really seals well and a small amount of gas remains. Shaking the nozzle doesn't seem as effective as just letting it sit for 5 seconds or so after pumping.
