General Motors has issued a recall on its 2012-2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups for a malfunctioning fuel gauge.

According to the recall notice, the affected pickup trucks are equipped with a 6.6-liter diesel engine and feature dual fuel tanks. A total of 9,733 heavy-duty pickups are affected, where the transfer pump which moves fuel from the rear tank to the front tank could malfunction. As a result, the fuel gauge could indicate an inaccurate reading.

GM will notify affected owners so that they can have their fuel transfer pumps inspected and replaced if necessary.
