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.

There is a fuel odor in the cockpit and the exterior of the vehicle. The odor is heavier when the gas tank is over half full. The odor appears stronger when the vehicle is parked.

Strong gas smell when above half full. Tested many times and is likely related to GM special coverage adjustment 15682, which describes problem perfectly (fuel pump fitting cracks), a very expensive fix. Many others like this posted here. However, dealer says my VIN is not included in special adjustment even though it is within the described year range (2007-2013). This is not right. Please help GM realize they didn't get all vins included that need to be. I bought my car in May 2013, so unlikely it should be precluded.

Strong fuel odor in the garage, around the left rear wheel well and inside the vehicle after parked for sometime. GM Chevrolet dealer diagnose the problem to crack fuel pump module left side behind the driver seat. GM Chevrolet has had the fuel module on backorder for the last week.

Strong gas odor in garage and car after parking. Dealer said fuel pump module is cracked, which means raw gas is being sprayed in area around fuel tank as you drive. Dealer says this is a known issue as he has 2 other customers with same problem.

Every time I fill up with gas I smell a strong odor of gas for the next few days until the fuel level goes down (driven daily). I can smell the gas odor in and outside of the vehicle and it also fills up my garage with gas fumes. I do not overfill when putting gas in. After looking into this it appears to be a common problem with leaks in the fuel pump to fuel tank area or cracks around tank fittings, and should be looked into as a very serious safety issue.

Strong fuel smell coming from left side of car. Fuel leaks from fitting at top of fuel pump assembly in left side tank. Many of us Corvette forum owners have had this happen. There's even a you-tube video showing where the "crack" occurs. Not acceptable to have to repair this after only 3 years of ownership.
