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.

I have a very strong fuel smell in my garage after I drive my car. I replaced the gas cap and it did not go away. It is stronger when I have filled the tank (I do not overfill). I have researched this issue on the internet and found that quite a few owners of C6 corvetted have had this problem. My fear is that fuel is being sprayed from a crack in the top of the fuel pump just outside the tank and could result in a fire and injury. See the youtube video at

I began noticing a strong gasoline odor coming from the car. I researched this symptom and discovered it was a common and well known problem related to defective fuel pumps for my model year car. Specifically, the fuel pumps develop cracks in the supply outlet of the pump, and then leak fuel along the top of the tank, which then flows down the side of the tank. I had to replace the pump, which the dealer now shows having a different part number than the original.

Strong smell of gasoline inside and outside of my 2011 C6 Corvette grand sport with no visible fuel leaks. The garage is filled with the smell of gas anytime the car is parked with over 1/2 a tank overnight. The local Chevrolet service center quoted $1,600 to pull the fuel tank and replace the left fuel pump. The service writer stated he has seen numerous identical issues on the C6 Corvettes and even showed me photos on his phone of where the fuel pump cracks on the the top. My vehicle has 46,000 miles. I no longer feel safe parking my car in my garage next to my gas water heater.
