Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Back pressure develops when refueling with the engine and ignition off. Gasoline gushes out onto attendant, car and ground. Obviously, there is a risk of injury or death from fire or explosion. This has happened many times, so that we no longer fill our tank, as its not nearly as bad if we fill it only 3/4 full. It will still spray out, but not gush out. This is a serious problem which Audi refuses to acknowledge as a defect, even though lives could be at risk.
