Hey guys, I would like to share my experience with autotopoff.com.

I received the $100 complete top-off kit. I returned from work the other day and it was screaming like a banshie. After inspection of the solenoid that was red-hot I noticed that th entire plunger and spring on the inside was rusted bad. After one day of operation..... So I emailed the guy, he informed me that the solenoid was new.... A complete lie. However, he did mention he would swap the solenoid with a new one if I sent it back. After I cleaned out all the rust it is working fine. So you might want to beware of this seller. Who knows, maybe I just got a bad solenoid.

I've had mine for over a year now and it just developed a problem. I e-mailed them and they quickly responed. I'm sending it back to them, they are fixing it for me, and shipping it back. I'm happy with that!

I don't run my solenoid anymore so if anyone wants it they can have it.

Everything you need to know. They even sell kits, or single parts.
