|Dates of Manufacture||August 1999|
|Manufacturer Recall No.||866|
|NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID||00V034|
|Potential Number of Units Affected||204,000|
|Remedy||Dealers will replace all three fuel sending units. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during June 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Volkswagen at 1-800-822-8987.|
|Summary||Sulfur in the fuel interacts with certain additives found in widely available gasoline, causing sulfur to become deposited on the contact points of the fuel sending units mounted inside the fuel tank. Sulfur deposits could cause the fuel gauge to read full while the fuel tank may not in fact be full or could be empty. Running out of fuel without warning while the fuel gauge indicates that there is sufficient fuel in the tank could result in a crash.|
