2005 Land Rover Range Rover Owner Comments

I own a Range rover, county model VIN: [xxx], purchased in 1992. I have replaced 2 fuel tanks due to what 2 different mechanics have told me is leaking fuel due to faulty seams on the plastic fuel tanks. I have been unable to locate a new fuel tank because I am told by Land Rover that the tank is no longer in production because rover is unable to secure a fuel tank manufacturer. After market companies have told me the same. I have contacted Land Rover and they have told me that no recall has happened at this point in time. I am able to smell fuel around my vehicle especially after filling the tank. It would make sense to believe that fuel tanks should last the life of the vehicle without ever leaking, especially 2 fuel tanks. The replacement fuel tanks should also be available for purchase even if there is not a recall. I am concerned that this presents a fire hazard and the vehicle should be recalled. I believe that this matter needs the immediate attention of the NHTSA. I am told by rover mechanics that other owners are experiencing the same problem, and that rover's discontinuance of production is the result of the "problems they are having with tank failure". what are we to do? they won't recall a known problem and every day we drive our family around with a strong odor of gas fumes coming from the rear of the vehicle. This is an extremely costly repair involving what could be a life threatening problem. Please reply.
