Summary:

 NAVISTAR IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 WORKHORSE W22 AND R26 TRUCKS MANUFACTURED FROM FEBRUARY 5, 2007 THROUGH MAY 24, 2010. THE FUEL-FILL CAP ASSEMBLIES USED TO SEAL THE UNUSED SIDE OF THE DUAL-FILL GASOLINE FUEL TANK WERE PRODUCED WITH A HOSE MATERIAL THAT DID NOT MEET DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS. DURING NORMAL USAGE THE HOSE MATERIAL MAY DETERIORATE WHICH MAY RESULT IN FUEL LEAKS.
Consequence:

 A FUEL LEAK INCREASES THE RISK OF A FIRE WHICH MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
Remedy:

 DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ORIGINAL FUEL-FILL CAP ASSEMBLIES WITH ONES ASSEMBLED WITH HOSE MATERIAL THAT MEETS DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS.

It is a bit of an understatement to say that "a fuel leak increases the risk of a fire" no kidding, folks.
