GM Recalls CNG-Powered Trucks and Vans for CNG-Label Size
General Motors is recalling certain CNG vehicles because their CNG fuel-only label is smaller than the required size. The affected vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 303 “Fuel System Integrity of Compressed Natural Gas Vehicles” because the text of the CNG fuel-only label is smaller than the required size, and as a result, may be less noticeable. GM says the text that does not conform to the required labeling size could inhibit fuel tank inspection practices and safe refueling, increasing the risk of a fire.
The affected vehicles include 1,808 2013–2014 Chevrolet Silverado HD, 2013–2014 GMC Sierra HD, 2013–2014 Chevrolet Express, and 2013 GMC Savana CNG vehicles in the U.S. GM will notify owners and will send them a replacement label, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
