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.

2006 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

May 122006

Mustang 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,200 miles


Potential fire hazard. Can not fuel vehicle. After approximately 1/2 tank, gas station fuel nozzle shut off. Tried slightly engaging nozzle, and continued to shut off. After multiple tries and multiple gas stations, could fill tank to 3/4 tank, then shut off recurred. Will no longer accept fuel. Fuel spillage occurred on almost all shut off incidents, no matter what pressure fuel was transferred at (by regulating handle). After research on internet, found many other owners complaining of same issue (see's 2005+ forums) with some having resolve after tank and / or filler tube /vent replacement. Tried their suggestion of placing nozzle in different directions did not help. Also reference Ford service bulletin 06313 (NHTSA item number 10019387) taking to dealership tomorrow. Not the first occurrence on this vehicle. Has shut off before prematurely, but has always restarted with no spillage / recurring. Vehicle only has 1200 miles on it.
