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.

Check Engine Light came ON. Later on that day noticed a strong raw gasoline smell when exiting the car. Checked the fuel lines and around the gas tank but could not see any leak, but the strong raw gasoline smell keeps coming back every time the engine is ON. The smell seems to be coming from on top of the fuel tank. Checked the fuel tank access under the rear passenger seats but all is dry there and no visible leaks. Car is at my mechanic's now waiting for service.
