Affecting petrol powered versions of the Macan S and the Macan Turbo, the Porsche Macan Fuel Line Recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

The ACCC recall notice saying that in affected Porsche Macan vehicles there is a possibility that the low pressure fuel line under the hood can leak at the connection point

In some circumstances, there is a potential of a small fuel leakage causing a fuel smell from the vehicle and in worst case situations, if the fuel leak comes in contact with an ignition source, there is potential for fire.

A letter will be sent to all affected Porsche Macan owners advising them on course of action. Porsche Australia tell us that owners can also contact their nearest Porsche Centre for more information.
