Summary:
On certain vans with ambulance packages or other severe-duty applications involving operation at or near the gross vehicle weight with frequent twisting of the vehicle body, such as off-road, rough road or speed bump events, the 35-gallon mid-ship fuel tank could develop a crack where it contacts the frame cross member.
