I have a 2001 Dodge sport pickup 4X4 that caught fire. The point of origin was located on top of the fuel tank which caused the fuel tank to rupture and catch fire. This occurred while the vehicle was being driven. No mechanical problems prior to this incident. Fire was confined mainly to the underside of the bed. I have found where this identical thing occurred on the1998 models and a recall 98V182000 for that model truck on fuel line problems was issued. After examining my truck, the dealer says that they have never seen or heard of this before and that they are not trained to determine the cause of this fire. I need someone to investigate this problem. I have not contacted the manufacturer yet but have every intention on doing so.

Dodge has used plastic gas lines in the Ram truck. A ground hog nipped a gasline and an electrical wire located near the gasline. When the truck was started, the engine burst into flames. The fire dept had to put out the fire and the truck was totalled. Plastic gas lines should not be permitted in vehicles. Any rodent or road debris can puncture a gas line causing a dangerous situation.
