Actually got notified of this on my Gas Buddy app a few weeks ago. Just received that notification in the mail today. Gotta love these EcoDeisels. My 2015 is still in one piece fortunately. Will just wait for the fix and hope she don't blow!
I’m just gonna keep whipping and spurring in my 2017 eco diesel with the same thought!

Hi: All... According to my VIN# this recall is incomplete. Stella Antics can say that faster than Bosch can make pumps... apparently.

@Dieseldragon our friend FCA ain't doing this out of the kindness of their hearts it's because they got poked with the business end of the stick by the Feds. I trust Bosch more so than other 3rd party manufacturers hopefully they are rolling out production.

does anyone know if running the Hot Shots fuel treatment will actually add some lubricity to the fuel.... just thinking of preventative measures here. My vin is on the list.
Hi: Kneebull... H.S. Extreme Diesel says it will on the label. Tanks for reminding me I need to add 8oz. to my truck.

Hot shots is a good move, the added lubricity along with not letting your fuel tank below 1/4 are good rules of (y)

Run b5-b20 biodiesel if you want lubricity. Just b2 biodiesel has more lubrication than the best additive.

So, 3rd Gen EDs are not included in the recall?

But, do 3rd Gen EDs use the same HPFP?

That’s a question I’ve been wondering too???
It is the same model, i.e. CP4.2, but not all CP4.2's are created equal. It is possible that the 3rd gen has different internals but I don't know for sure
