You may recall last week we told you that GM was no longer going to cover the cost
of a full tank of gas for newly purchased cars and trucks. Instead, it would only reimburse a portion of each tank's cost, and dealers would be responsible for the rest. One of our readers who shall remain anonymous has come across another dealer communiqué from GM Vice President of Industry Dealer Affairs William Powell that rescinds the company's original penny-pinching policy. The notice explains that GM originally decided to change its fuel fill reimbursement policy based upon "the changing business conditions and competitive environment." Apparently its dealers clued General Motors in on the fact that "a complete fuel fill was viewed as an integral element in the delivery of GM vehicles." Who knows, maybe this whole blog thing had something to do with it, too.
