Description This is a CANADIAN TIRE FUEL PUMP REPAIR KIT cardboard box (a) with "RK-46" printed on it. A black item (B) has melted inside, making it difficult to remove from the box and potentially trapping some items inside. The box has a red background with yellow text and a black band running around the base. The text on every side of the box is fairly standard - "FUEL PUMP REPAIR KIT" is written in the red section, while "SUPREME QUALITY" is written in the black.
