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.

2002 Ford E-250 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 282002

E-250 4WD 8-cyl

  • 65 miles


Vehicle has a 29 gallon fuel tank. When the fuel gauge reads empty and I fuel up the vehicle it will only take 22 gallons of fuel. The dealer tells me the vehicle should have a reserve, but a 7 gallon reserve doesn't make sense. I previously owned a 1999 F-250 with the same specs and when the fuel gauge read empty it would take up to 29 gallons, I had the 2002 vehicle at the dealer 3 times for this problem, they also tell me the gauge is working properly.
