Hundreds of thousands of Audi and Volkswagen vehicles have a fuel leak problem that could lead to fires, and the company has recalled them, notifying customers that they can expect repairs, um, eventually. While the company announced both fuel leak recalls at the same time, they apparently have different causes.

Fuel leaks can cause fires, but a Volkswagen spokeswoman said that there have been no reported fires or injuries, and didn’t include a warning to, say, park the vehicles outside.
