Fire

The leak protection between the flexible rubber tubes and the metal pipes of the fuel injection system is not adequate as a result of the material used and due to excessively large tolerance limits for the diameter of the rubber tubes. This can result in a gradual loss of fuel. If fuel escapes on a large scale there is a risk of fire.
