This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Why is a recall being conducted?

What should you do?

If the II MUCH Fuel/Differential vent is currently installed in a vehicle, cease operation of the vehicle and remove the unit immediately. The vent line should be returned to original equipment configuration while awaiting replacement unit — if this is not possible, some other method should be used to safely vent the fuel tank or equipment.
