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.

Fuel tank/filler assembly causes vapors to backup into gas pumps equipped with vapor reclamation systems. This causes a gas pump so equipped to shutoff prematurily when refilling the vehicles fuel tanks from any percentage of capicity. There for, filling the tank becomes especially time consuming, frusturating and potentially hazardeous as one is constantly trying to override the systems automatic shutoff inorder to put any reasonable quantity of gallons into the vehicles fuel tank. It becomes difficult to know whether the gas pumps auto shutoff is being triggered by fuel backup due to tank design problems or the tank actually starting to overfill. This issue primarely occurs with the 38.5 gallon fuel tank.
