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.

Reference NHTSA action # PE12001 February 8, 2013 I bought a car from a dealer. On a next day I filled full tank and found gasoline smell from driver side next to the rear door. I did some research on internet and found many similar issue. To verify if I have same problem I raise a rear seat cushion, unscrew 6 bolts on small bay from driver side to get access to fuel sending unit and found a crack on it along with gasoline spilling over.
