My gas can became disengaged during my drive home from work, enrupted into flames and I had to put out the fire with a hose. I have pictures, I need to know how to act further. Both the police and fire departments arrived on the scene.

Do you drive a 1998 FORD F-250?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
