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.

When the fuel tank is more than 50% full there is a strong persistent odor of fuel that fills my parking garage and can also be smelled in the car while driving. When the fuel tank is below 50% full the odor is less noticeable and virtually disappears as the fuel tank empties. There are no visible fuel leaks and there is no lack of performance from the engine. It appears that fuel vapors are leaking from the tank without leaking to the ground. The fuel cap is in good condition and properly secured.

A strong smell of fuel in the cockpit. While there is no visible puddle of fuel on my garage floor, the fuel odor is very strong and I am obliged to keep my garage door open or the fuel smell enters into the house. I took it to the service dept of where I purchased the vehicle (carmax) and was informed today that the leak is on the top of the left fuel tank and that to access it, it would be necessary to remove the transmission. I was also informed that since the job was a "big one" carmax would make arrangements to have my car brought to a Chevrolet dealership. I was also told that my car max service warranty might not cover the repairs done outside their shop. I am bringing this to your attention in hopes that due to the fire danger involved with leaking fuel General Motors will issue a safety recall on the problem. The fuel smell is amplified when there is 3/4 of a tank or more. The fuel smell is particularly strong when the vehicle is in the garage. The fuel smell diminishes if the vehicle is parked outside in the open air.

I have a 2010 Corvette grand sport with 46000 miles that has strong gas fumes coming from the drivers side by the gas tank while parked in the garage. Even after sitting for 2 days the gas smell didn't go away. I took the car into Chevrolet and they replaced the gas tank and the fuel pump on the drivers side because it was leaking. The repair cost $2900. I asked the service rep at Chevrolet if the new gas tank design flaw had been fixed and he replied that he didn't know. I also had a 2006 Corvette with the same problem so I have to assume it hasn't been fixed. Chevrolet hasn't fixed the problem and I'm afraid it will keep happening and my house or car will catch fire and someone may get hurt. There needs to be a recall and we should get reimbursed.
