I believe that it is because in the present tense these verbs have an accent (unlike jeter , je jette ----> je jetterai) :
J'achète -----> J'achèterai
Je complète ----> Je complèterai
Je répète -----> je répèterai
Although you can also use an accute accent ( since 1990) it still feels very odd to me.
Hope this helps!
Which rule or lesson suggests to you that these verbs ought to be spelled with a double "t"?
Sorry about that:
Conjugate -éXer, -eXer, être, ever verbs in Le futur.
