Report Receipt Date: OCT 25, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V524000
NHTSA Action Number:
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER:FUEL FILTER
Potential Number of Units Affected: 6,520
Summary: Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America (MFTA) is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 FEC52, FEC72, FEC92, and FGB72 trucks. The fuel line may disconnect from the fuel filter head due to an improperly machined connector.
Consequence: As the fuel line loosens and detaches it may leak fuel. Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source such as high temperature components may increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy: MFTA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected fuel filter head, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on December 3, 2012. Owners may contact MFTA at 1-856-467-4500.
