Just as you think that we are moving rapidly through the highest tech era this planet has ever been through with new advances being announced virtually daily you hear a story that makes you realise that we still actually live in the real world. I read that Mazda have recalled 65,000 of their 6 model cars in north and central America. Suddenly you think of technical faults and the sort of problems faced by Toyota. But the recall was all over spiders. It turns out that during the production process yellow sac spiders take a liking to the fuel system’s vent pipe after receiving reports of 20 cases in which the spiders have made nests in the vent pipes.

The firm made the move after becoming concerned that the spiders could make webs that would increase pressure in the fuel tank causing cracks and risking fire. It would seem that other than possibly causing your car to explode the spiders are quite harmless for those that were wondering where this story was going.

By the way UK cars are unaffected as the affected cars were built in North America and UK cars are built in Japan. Have you got any stories of natural occurrences affecting your car? By Graham Hill
