• Gas engine recalled after risk of fuel leak and fire hazard

    Updated:

    Kohler gasoline engine models have been recalled due to risk of fuel leak and possible fire hazard.

    Officials told FOX13 engine models SH265, CH245, CH255, CH270, CH395, CH440, and ECH440 are included in the recall.

    The engines have a faulty fuel cap, which can allow over-pressurization in the fuel tank. This can lead to a fuel leak and fire hazard.
