German term or phrase: ab Einführung
Ab Einführung der großen Tankklappe wird durch Unterdruck während der Fahrt die Klappe aufgezogen.

- This is a trouble-shooting section of a document related to large vehicles. The problem being described is that the hatch for the filling tank sometimes flies open when the vehicle is in motion. I'm just confused about what the 'ab Einfuehrung' part refers to. Does this mean 'starting with the introduction of large tank hatches' (i.e. this is a problem with this new size of tank hatch)? Grateful for any help.

Explanation:
Essentially, I think you are correct, although Einführung is a tad ambiguous, since it could mean 'from its installation' - I think the choice may depend on the rest of the context. Hope this helps.

Explanation:
drop the "starting". It sounds like your idea is right, though it's difficult to tell without more context.
