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.

strong fuel smell after fill up

1998 Cobra Mustang leaks fuel at filler neck to tank. I think this is a poor design as I have found many forums on how to replace this gasket. It took me 35 minutes start to finish and did not have to drop the tank. This is really a safety issue as gas would pour from my car when I would fill it up and make a turn to the left. If you smell fuel after fill-up, replace this grommet/gasket. It could save your life.

Do not wait! Its about 25 bucks to Do it yourself or about 100 bucks at a repair shop.

This gasket Ford PT# 2R3Z-9072-AA is used from 1998 to 2004.
