Ford Motor Co. has recalled 1.1 million pickup trucks because the gas tanks can fall off and cause a fire. The company is recalling certain Ford F-150, F-250 and Lincoln Blackwood pickups. The recall affects certain models from the 1997 model year through the 2004 model year. They were sold in cold-weather states where salt is used to clear roads. That salt can corrode straps holding the tanks in place. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the straps holding up the tanks can rust, causing them to fall to the ground. The tanks can rupture and cause a fire. Ford reported eight incidents of the tanks falling, resulting in three injuries.
