CleanFUEL USA, a leading supplier of alternative fuel infrastructure and liquid propane engine systems, has recalled the fuel hose fittings on the Blue Bird Propane Vision school bus. The company determined a potential safety-related condition exists with a faulty conical hose fitting. No accidents have been reported associated with this recall, according to the company. CleanFUEL USA says that the supplier of the failed components was notified and acknowledged this issue. These parts will no longer be used in future models.
CleanFUEL says that, during an independent quality review, it found evidence of the hose fitting separating from the fuel line, which could potentially cause a small amount of propane fuel to be released. The company says there are several mechanisms in place to safely stop the fuel flow. But the cutoff of fuel from these safety mechanisms may result in a vehicle stall. In partnership with Blue Bird, CleanFUEL is pursuing a 100% recall of all Propane Vision school bus products issued before August 2011 within the affected population. CleanFUEL will replace faulty conical hose fittings with a new crimp hose fitting design at no charge.
