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.

Problem with gas tank when refueling. When the condition occurs which is often, the car will not take more than 1 or 2 gallons of gas. Car was brought back to dealership to check fuel gauge. Dealer stated that this is a common problem caused by equal air pressure inside tank with outside air pressure.this equal pressure is the reason why gas cannot be pumped into car. When you continuously play with gas nozzle eventually you break the air pressure seal. Often times you get gasoline spilled on your hands and clothing as well as on ground. It is very easy for a person to think that their gas gauge is defective and drive on eventually to run out of gas.
