Straps broke on my gas tank dropping the tank to the hwy, which punctured the tank and 34 gals of diesel fuel was lost on the hwy. After checking this out with several different sources, it seams to be a recurring problem with Dodge trucks why no service bulletins or owner notifications, to the original owner.
