    Wasn't there a gas line recall and maybe that's what happened here?

    Yes. A clip recall.

    It really doesn't appear it started back by the tank though. Wrong location and too slow of a burn.

    It isn't the most intuitive search engine. But, once you get used to the way it searches you can find things rather easily.

    I was under the impression the fuel line clip was in the engine compartment and not by the tank. The clip is supposed to correct the fuel line from the chassis to the fuel rail from chaffing on the under hood.

    You could be correct and my assumption may be wrong.

    Yeah, the fuel clip recall is on the hose to the fuel rail by the firewall. Apparently they have seen some chaffing on the hose from rubbing on the hood on some vehicles and my guess is with the RAZR debacle, they are taking no chances.
