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.

Up until a month ago, the misread was tolerable. Gauge read empty with a couple gallons still to go- I could live with that. A month ago the car, with the gauge reading a solid eighth, which up til that time would have translated to a quarter tank or so, ran out of gas AT THE TOP OF THE CORONADO BRIDGE (el. 200') DURING commute HOUR requiring a push down by H/way patrol, then a tow home by AAA. Never imagined it was out of gas. But is was, and afterwards the gauge read back to where it was before, until last week, when same thing happened, fortunately on a level, quite street.

It's either gauge or tank unit. I'll troubleshoot it myself.
