A spider web can cause a restriction in the EVAP canister vent line. This can result in undue stress on the fuel tank during the vapor purge function of the EVAP system. This stress could crack the fuel tank, resulting in a leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and clean the vent line and install a spring to keep spiders from entering the line. This recall is expected to begin on March 25, 2011. The Mazda recall number is 6211B.
