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.

RIGHT WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE ABOUT OUT OF GAS THE HAND GOES UP AND SOMETIMES IT IS THE OTHER WAY AROUND, RIGHT WHEN YOU THINK YOU HAVE GAS THE HAND GOES DOWN. YOU HAVE TO KEEP IT AT LEAST A 1/4 TANK OR GREATER TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.

Tahoe LT 5.7L V8

Need to use the odometer as a gauge for the gas tank. Spoke with a friend who is a fleet mechanic. This is a chronic problem with many of the Chevy/GMC trucks -- worst with the newer models. Problem with the sending unit on the fuel pump or potentially a wiring problem.
