Fuel Tank Defects

Fuel tank defects can cause fires, explosions and fatal accidents. Fuel tanks should be designed to withstand any impacts that humans can withstand. They should never explode when hit in an auto accident.

Defects in the fuel system may involve:

  • Faulty gas caps that dislodge
  • Filler necks that rupture
  • Fuel tanks that rupture
  • Failure to shield fuel tanks
  • Defective fuel tank placement
  • Lack of check valves to prevent leakage
  • Poor fuel line routing or composition
