The fuel tank paint may peel and result in a fuel leak

Ford Motor Company is recalling 11,074 model year 2022-2023 E-350, E-450, and model year 2021-2022 F-59 vans.

The paint along the weld seam of the fuel tank may peel and lead to corrosion of the exposed metal, which can result in a fuel leak.

A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace -- if necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 23, 2023.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S76.
