After fueling vehicle and parking in garage the vehicle for days will smell very strongly of gasoline until gallons are consumed via driving to approx. 3/4 of tank. Vehicle is not over filled ! no visual indications of fuel leaking on ground. This also happened since on July 12, 2016 last time vehicle was fueled.

Car has fuel leak. Once I turn on the car it starts leaking gas. I could be stationary or in motion, it still leaks gas. It also smells terrible inside my car. I am worried about my health and other Corvette owners. Some Corvette owners may not even notice and next thing you know there car is on fire. Worse case scenario they could be injured or even death. This is a safety issue and GM should recall this. Im lucky to be even writing this I could've blown up while driving the car.

Filled vehicle with gas on March 22nd. Drove car home and parked it in garage. The next day, I smelled a strong odor of gas. When I backed it out of the garage, there was a small puddle of gas on the floor.

Fuel tank leaked gasoline into garage of my home. Was afraid of the house catching on fire from the fumes and afraid to drive car because of fuel leaking onto exhaust system. This seems to be a common problem with Corvettes. It would be nice if GM was made to reimburse customers for this rather expensive repair.
