May 2011 Recall Information

We have discovered a material problem that can result in a brittle area on the flange of several of our plastic body fuel fills. The result is that the flange can crack when the mounting screws are tightened. The cause of the problem has been traced back to the material itself, not an in-house Perko process. These fills affected were manufactured after 4/12/11 and in May. They can be identified by the date code molded on the side of the fill. See the photographs below for the location of the date code, which tells when the fill was manufactured.
