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.

Since I purchased my 2001 Volvo XC70 with 16,535 miles in August 2004, I have had it into the dealer (borton Volvo) four times to fix the same issue: Gasoline shooting out of the tank upon completion of filling. This occurs at any and all gas stations, even after the following remedies have been taken: Vent cleaning, fuel control replacement, fuel tank replacement, sending unit replacement, evaporation cannister replacement, and filler neck replacement. I believe this to be a safety issue and an environmental issue with the vehicle. Even following replacement of the aformentioned parts, the problem still exists.
