Fuel Tank Corrosion Inspection and Repair
REASON FOR THIS PROGRAM
In some of the affected vehicles which are operated in high-corrosion environments associated with
road salt use, moisture and salt may become trapped under the fuel tank mounting reinforcement
brackets at the four corners where the fuel tank is attached to the vehicle. Over time, corrosion under
these reinforcement brackets can spread to the fuel tank which can result in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in
the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.
Owners that operate their vehicle in a corrosive environment (e.g., where road salt is used in winter
months) or have concerns about their fuel tank are eligible for a repair under this Regional Program.
