Mitsubishi Motors Corp. announced Thursday (7/9/00) another recall of fuel caps it recalled only two weeks earlier, says Associated Press (7/9/00).

The initial recall - in August - involved fuel caps on 45,000 minicab trucks that would not close resulting in possible leaks. This second recall involving the trucks - sold only in Japan - was necessary as exchanging the caps did not solve the problem, says AP.

The report - quoting a Mitsubishi company spokesman - says that the openings on the fuel caps were also defective.
