Same. I wonder what the cutoff or differentiator is.

The only thing I can come up with is the inherent difference between the characteristics of gasoline vs diesel. Gasoline can be a lot harder on certain materials than diesel?

I received the recall notice today on my 3.0. Looks like both fuel rails to be replaced, three hour job.

Is this not the same?

EDIT: Just spoke with a local dealer, indeed another recall. Booked in on the 19th to get it figured out. Fingers crossed for the R8 loaner car......
that's your fuel pump located at the gas tank.
my letter indicated fuel rails which is a much different issue.

sound like your fuel pump not the fuel rails.
definitely the recalls are all different matters.
some are fuel dampers, fuel lines, fuel pressure regulators and fuel rails.

Can't say since they did it as part of my 35k service.

I was told over the phone should allow 3-5 hours.
Although I always assume they'll have my car overnight at a minimum lol
