Extremely strong fuel odor upon leaving fuel stop for the past several fill ups. Took vehicle in for diagnosis and discovered that fuel tank is cracked and needs to be replaced. I am reporting this because the repair garage told me it is a major problem in the same area of the fuel tank that affects my vehicle and that they have repaired this same issue on my vehicle model all the time.

We smelled the odor of gasoline in our garage, so took our vehicle to Mercedes of henderson. We were informed that the fuel tank was cracked around the top mounting bolt and needed to be replaced. Upon further investigation, we noted that this is an ongoing problem with the Mercedes E and Clk class vehicles. The fact that the car has never been in an accident, this is obviously a defect in the manufacturing process. When researching on the internet, we observed numerous Mercedes owners with the same problem. Does our home have to burn to the ground before something is done to have Mercedes correct this problem.

When I filled the fuel tank, the inside of the car smells very strongly of gas fumes. The whole garage smelled strongly of gas fumes and gas was dripping on the floor of the garage. If the hot water heater decided to ignite, it could have caused a fire or explosion. I believe this is a similar issue to NHTSA investigation ea 13-003. The Cls class and the E class share the same chassis and fuel tank. If possible, please expand your investigation to include Cls class vehicles.
