Mazda Announces Voluntary Recall

    IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 23 -- Mazda has announced that it is
voluntarily recalling approximately 357 1998-model B4000 pick-up trucks for
the inspection and, if necessary, installation of a retaining clip on the
flexible fuel line that runs along the frame to the engine.
    Mazda has found that on certain B4000 pickup trucks the flexible fuel line
that runs from the frame to the engine may be routed closer to the exhaust
manifold than desired.  In a small number of cases, the fuel line may contact
the exhaust manifold, which could possibly result in damage to the fuel line
and subsequent leakage.  In sufficient quantities, fuel leakage in the
presence of an ignition source could potentially result in a fire.
    Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified via first-class mail and
asked to take their vehicles to an authorized Mazda dealership to have the
work performed.  While this service should take less than one hour, some
dealers may need to keep vehicles longer to accommodate their service
