I found the following description on the Corvette forum. It describes the symptoms of my car exactly. Fuel leaks out the top of the tanks, and will then drip down the back side onto the hot exhaust. If ignored this could result in a fire and possible death. If parked overnight in a garage, the vapor will fill the garage and could easily be triggered into an explosion and fire from a gas water heater or other ignition source.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette. While driving various speeds, a fuel odor emitted from the vehicle. The contact mentioned that the fuel odor was also present when the vehicle was parked, but there was no visible fuel leakage. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the technician stated that the fuel tank may have failed. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 18,200.

After having all the fluids changed at my Chevrolet dealer, which included a transmission flush and differential service (which happen to be right by the fuel tanks) a strong fuel smell was evident when parked in garage. Took vehicle back to dealer who determined spider cracking at fuel output elbow on top of fuel pump causing fuel leak when fuel pump on. Replaced fuel pump and crossover feed lines. $1720

There has been heavy fumes smell coming from my 07 Corvette when the tank is fuel it is very unsafe to park it in my garage because of the strong odor and my water heater is located in the garage. I have to have the tank on low if I want to park it inside. The smell also comes inside the vehicle when it's full this hazard need to be address before the matter lead to someone getting hurt. Whatever the problem is I would think GM needs to go back and check the fuel tank and the components attach to it for cracks that not supposed to happen.

While parked in garage strong fuel odor emits from fuel filler pipe and gas cap.. noticeable after a few hours and particularly noticeable if car cover is used. Most predominate when tank is full or nearly so.

I have a strong smell of gasoline in and around mu 2007 Corvette C6. It is caused by a defective plastic fuel pump where the fuel line exits the top of the pump on the outside of the fuel tank. It always cracks and leaks fuel. This happens to all factory installed original C6 fuel pumps. The GM replacement pump is manufactured with a different type of plastic and is not suppose to crack. My 2007 Corvette has approx. 44,000 miles and has this extremely dangerous and life threaten issue. And may even burn down my garage also. Why has this pump not been recalled by GM" are you waiting until enough lives and property is lost??"

Noted a spontaneous fuel smell in cabin behind drivers seat after returning to parked vehicle. At first assumed that the tank may have been overfilled. The strong fumes persisted in the cabin and also when approaching the vehicle until the fuel tank emptied below the 1/2 mark. Brought vehicle to Chevy dealer just before warranty expiration. I was told it was leak tested and they could not find any leak. I have since taken it to X3 independent mechanics spending over $600 and none have been able to correctly diagnose or correct the problem. The fumes only occur when the tank is filled just past the 1/2 full mark. I have been told by the mechanics that the tanks would need to be dropped to find the problem this would be at a minimum cost of 1600.00$. needless to say I have been driving my vehicle 1/2 full for over 2years now. Of course I feel my vehicle may still be potentially dangerous, not only the exposure to the fumes but also the risk of a fire or explosion and I feel that the manufacturer is being negligent by not admitting there is a problem with their design flaw. From what I understand in the Corvette forum the design has been changed in newer models.

My C6 2007 Chevrolet Corvette has a very strong fuel smell indicating it has one or many fuel leaks which is a large danger and an emissions violation. This is a very widely-known issue with a large number of C6 owners but GM will not initiate a recall on the faulty fuel pump or leaking seals on the gas tanks. This needs to be addressed asap before someone gets killed.
