my understanding is the pump is flooding the evap system and causing gas to leak out the charcoal cannister. the video clip is right after i shut off the car and the rest of the fuel was still draining out.

there was a recall on 15/16's but not my 17. it's out of factory warranty and apparently i don't get an emission warranty because i don't live in a PZEV state. dealer will most likely want to replace the entire tank and quoted me over $2k just in parts when i called in last week to schedule service. other people have gotten VW to help cover 80-90% so i contacted VWOA and am waiting for a call back from them, as well as the call back from the dealer for the official diagnosis
Good luck to you.

i read one person was able to get it covered by their insurance under comprehensive, so hopefully worse case scenario GEICO comes in clutch

if this ends up costing me more than $500 im going to raise hell, especially considering it's been an issue that's been recalled on earlier years

That sucks, I hope it gets covered or mostly covered.

Got new wheels/tires and oem splashguards. Went with the Neuspeed RSE10 18x8.5 Gunmetal wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport AS4 (235/40/18). I'm extremely happy with how they ride, much smoother than factory 225's. I was gonna go with 245, but didn't want the speedo to be too far off. I'm happy with the look and the splashguards. Wheel gap is meh, but living in the NYS, I don't think it's worth the aggravation to lower.

Also picked up OEM roof rack and bike attachment, but haven't had the time to put them on.

Italian tune up on German A1 at 10X mph as every morning on my way to work. Then there was this long right downhill turn. I let her roll, and dang we hit the speed limiter (again at the same section). Might have to get her unlimited soon.

Spoke to VWOA and they basically told me to kick rocks since it's 12 months out of factory warranty.

She asked "did you buy new or used, how many other VW's have you owned, do you usually take it to a dealer for maintenance/oil changes" then came back a couple minutes later and told me they can't help me. I guess if it was my 3rd VW then they would help? :mad:

Any other suggestions on who I can contact? Gonna send them an email... def not going to call & wait on hold for another 90 minutes again.

Still haven't heard from the dealer

Installed PS4S for the first time. Coming from Indy 500s & I love the PS4S. First impressions, take curbs more confident than the indy's. Car absorbs bumps really nice now. It ended up raining so I did a pull and I am very impressed how I didn't lose traction. Felt like the street was dry as hell. The Indy 500 would spun crazy on a pull in the rain. Hope they last long lol

Yeah, the Indy 500 isn't know for its rain performance. Falken FK510 is a better choice at that price point.

Washed it because it was filthy after sitting for about two weeks. Then immediately had to jump the BRZ because we left an interior light on while away and the battery died :/
