Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America (MFTA) is recalling certain model year 2012 FGB72 and model year 2012-2013 FEC52, FEC72, FEC92 trucks. The low pressure fuel return hose and filter may have been improperly routed at the hose clamp near the filter. This could allow the fuel hose to slip off of the filter, causing a fuel leak.
Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire.
MFTA will notify owners, and dealers will correct the hose and filter routing and add a clip to the fuel return hose, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on October 19, 2012. Owners may contact MFTA at 1-856-467-4500.
