Only 286 Model Year 2007 to 2011 units are thought to be affected by a recall issued by the NHTSA, but when the vehicles in question are the converted-by-Roush, propane-fueled Ford E-Series vans, 286 units turns out to be quite a lot.

Roush has announced it's recalling some of its converted E-150, E-250, E-350 and E-450 vans due to a problem with the retention clips that hold the fuel injectors. Roush says faulty clips on affected vans could leak propane from the vehicle's fuel rail, which could result in a fire.

Roush will notify owners of affected vans and will arrange for free replacement of the faulty clips. Owners are urged to contact Roush directly for more info on the recall.
