CNG Vehicle Fuel Cylinder Comes Loose

Recall Details

The brackets that hold the fuel cylinder in place for a natural gas (CNG) modified vehicle converted by Landi Renzo USA may fail, resulting in the cylinder becoming dislodged. Dealers will inspect and replace the side arm brackets as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

On vehicles equipped with natural gas fuel (CNG), the rear brackets that keep the fuel cylinder in place may fail, resulting in the cylinder dislodging. This could cause a fuel leak.

What Should You Do?

Landi Renzo, which performs the fuel modification, notified owners of affected vehicles starting in March 2014. You can check with your dealer to assist in seeing if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
