Product IdentifiersSome model year 2018 Outlander™ and Renegade™ vehicles. BRP recommends that the owners avoid using vehicles until the repair is applied, However, if the fuel cap must be opened, the following precautions must be adhered to: • Let the vehicle cool down for a 4-hour period. • Slowly open fuel cap ¼ to ½ turn maximum to release any remaining pressure. • Wait 1 full minute. • Open fuel cap. • Do not fill the fuel tank to more than ¾ of its full capacity.
The fuel tank may build excessive pressure due to a blocked vent and could cause fuel to spray on users when opening the fuel cap. Additionally, if an ignition source is present, this could create a risk of fire and potential burn injuries or damage to property.
