Toyota is conducting a safety recall involving certain 2022 and 2023 model year Toyota Tundra and Tundra Hybrid vehicles. Approximately 168,000 vehicles in the U.S. are involved in this recall.

From Toyota:

For all involved vehicles, Toyota dealers will replace the fuel tube with an improved part and additional clamps at no cost to customers. Toyota is currently preparing the remedy parts for this recall. As a temporary measure until the final remedy parts are available, the dealers will install protective materials and a clamp on the fuel tube at no cost to customers. Toyota will notify affected owners about this issue by early October 2023.
