Have you guys seen this post? http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39040 I wonder if the updates would cure the need to use this fuse fix.

From that post it doesn't look like it. They updated it and then told him to go home and pull the fuses... But it is an independent post that confirms the fuse pull...

Not that it needed confirming...

I understood that if you start off slowly, it would be a second gear start. But if you romp it, it would start in first.

Well, unless I did a 13.37 quarter mile and 0-60 in 5.1 starting in second gear, then I guess I started in first. I did all my runs in 'D' and not 'S'.

According to the GM tech taht my dealer talked to, the car will adjust down to low grade but NOT up from low grade. If you get low grade gas in your car, you will have to take it to the dealer. (or do the 5/20 )

well the good news to this is that you can baby the car with the proper break in, then pull a fuse for ass kick mode.

If the system was meant to adjust both ways we should see this coming from the dealers. I can tell you that they are well aware of the situation. My dealer called me to get me in to do the reset. Of course this was just after I had done it and I had someone looking into it for me. It may very well be that it isn't suposed to be adjusting up but that you are simply suposed to run only high grade fuel in it or run the risk of having to take it in to get reset. Or in this case do the fuse thing. We are fortunate enough to be part of an information and 'do it yourself' comunity here.

Of the system was meant to adjust back up after dropping to the lower table them I trust that GM will get the update out soon.

That is what I am talking about, I am just baffled! I felt like a second class citizen when I brought the problem to their attention. And of course someone here finds the solution with no official word from GM. I just don’t get it.

Honestly, I think you should write a letter to the dealers owner and to a few GM folks, including Fritz: http://www.gmreinvention.com/ Look on the right side for "Tell Fritz" and enter the issue right there. Do not make your point as a bitchfest but rather as a communication/competency problem that must be addressed by GM.
