A standard-size gas filler was fitted on the CJ-2A with an exterior fill, eliminating the need to lift the seat cushion as in the MB. This location and fill design lasted in the CJ series until 1972, when the government banned passenger-compartment fuel tanks. Although gas would leak past a worn-out gas cap on side hills, the location was handy for visual verification of the fuel level and a short stick could be inserted if the gas gauge was broken.
