Two Recalls in two weeks

Just got a letter through work today that Holden have recalled the towpack on our cars (VX's), this follows a letter last week for the recall on the fuel sender unit.

Doing well!

Yeah i've heard about the fuel sender recall, apparently the DTE is not showing correctly as a result the car may run out of fuel despite indicating theres fuel there.

Ford did a recall for that towbar goose neck last year, is that the issue with the Holden one (made by the same third party supplier.) ??

yeah this is after the other fuel sender recall we did a little while ago - im getting very good at taking VT and VX tanks out!!!

they try to blame it on impuritys (sulfur) in the fuel damaging the sender unit - they say sulfur damages it - BS BIG TIME sulfur is added to the fuel on purpose, for what reason i forget, but it has been in fuel since the year dot!

Yeah I got one.

Dont know if anyone saw the recall for the Ford Transit in May

The vehicles automatic transmission may change to a lower gear unexpectedly. The change of gear at normal speed may result in instability and loss of control.

Not sure why the sulfur is there ?

I think the proposed ADRs for new vehicles 2005-2006 all new petrol vehicles will require 95RON and have a low sulfur content for emissions

Looking here seems Audi A6 have the same issue, so maybe its not bs ?

Sulfur deposits on fuel-level sending units in gas tank cause gauge to read full when tank is not.
