Some 2008-model Hyundai Elantras are being recalled due to fuel pumps that could lose pressure and decreasing engine performance. In Elantras with the 2.0-liter Beta engine, gasoline with ethanol added creates a buildup of film on the pump's electrical contacts. This can cause the engine to hesitate during starting or while running. The recall is voluntary, and if you have one of the affected cars, don't hesitate to contact your dealer.

      I have a 2002 Hyundai Elantra and I absolutely love my car. I have never really had any serious issues with it until 2013 when it just died one day. I went to start up the car to get to work and it revved up, the engine started smoking and then I shut it down. I tried again to start it and nothing. I had a mechanic look at it and he couldn't find anything wrong with my car. He spent 4 hours looking. Finally he came across the fact that the engine pistons had no lubrication. None at all. Oil was fine, spark plugs were fine gas tank was full. After reading all this crap about this ethanol garbage - I think the gas caused my car to fail. After having many small engines fail because of this gas, I think the gas needs to be revoked.

      The evils of ethanol...

        Wait...what? "Gasoline with ethanol added"? Since when was Elantra's engine compatible with ethonal?

        @XJ:

        They're likely talking about "Regular" gas, as in "May contain up to 10% ethanol", as opposed to E85.

      Yet another fuel pump, why do so many companies have that issue.

        My guess is a massive conspiracy involving aftermarket fuel-pump companies and that lovable cat-eating alien ALF.
