I was told that this assembly is plastic in composition and can have cracks or punctures in every day use; this seems to be an unacceptable option and should be considered a design flaw. I have a 1987 automobile with over 140,000 miles and it has never had its gas tank replaced. This vehicle has been driven in the same areas as my mini-van.
