Aug. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Volkswagen AG is recalling about 151,389 vehicles dating back to the 2009 model year that may develop bubbles in the fuel system when using winterized gasoline.

Owners of the Tiguan sport-utility vehicle made by Volkswagen Group of America Inc. between July 2007 and June of this year will be notified, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in an Aug. 7 letter to the automaker confirming the recall.

“In certain conditions bubbles may form in the fuel system which could result in the vehicle stalling,” Jennifer Timian, chief of the recall management division of the administration, wrote in the letter.

The recall will begin Aug. 19, according to the letter. Dealers will update the car’s software to increase fuel-pump pressure.
