Has anyone had a flat and used the supplied tire sealant? If so, was the tire pressure monitoring sensor affected? :hmm:

Deedo. They wouldn't use a sealant that wouldn't work anyway, right?

You could only hope. The C5 Z06 had tire goop but no TPMS because it would clog them.

Good to know this sealant doesn't.

Even if one does get clogged, sensors aren't that expensive anymore. I would rather have a spare, but when one doesn't fit, it's better to goop up the inside of your tire and kill a sensor, than be stranded on the side of the road waiting for roadside assistance, mere feet away from cars that are going 80mph with drivers that may, or may not, be paying attention.
