Land Rover has identified a concern with petrol fuel tanks fitted to 2005 MY Discovery 3 vehicles. Some of the affected vehicles may contain a breather pipe that was not manufactured to specification. This may result in
excessive swelling and cracking of a retaining grommet and subsequent detachment of the breather pipe from a connector tube. When the fuel level in the tank is above the level of the detached joint, fuel may then enter the breather pipe. The vehicle may exhibit a fuel odor and drivability concerns such as hesitation, misfire, stalling, rough running or difficulty in starting. If the amount of fuel flowing into the breather pipe reaches the vapor canister and
exceeds the canister capacity, the excess fuel may be discharged onto the ground.
Land Rover has taken the decision to recall all affected vehicles to have the petrol fuel tank replaced.
