FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

3/27/2015 - PEARLAND, TX
I NOTICED A STRONG GAS SMELL IN AND AROUND THE CAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AFTER FILLING UP BUT I DID NOT OVERFILL OR SPILL GAS ANYWHERE. AFTER HAVING A MECHANIC DIAGNOSE THE ISSUE HE FOUND THAT THE FUEL PUMP UNDER THE REAR SEAT ON THE RIGHT SIDE WAS LEAKING AND HAD FUEL POOLING UP AT THE TOP. AS FIRST STEP HE REPLACED THE O-RING SEAL ON THE FUEL UP. AFTER REPLACING THE SEAL THERE WAS NO LEAK INITIALLY BUT IT OCCURRED AGAIN AFTER THE NEXT FILL UP. SO IT SEEMS THE LEAK ONLY OCCURS WHEN THE GAS TANK IS FULL. SINCE THE SEAL WAS ALREADY REPLACED BUT THE LEAK IS STILL THERE I TOOK IT TO THE DODGE DEALER WHO WILL HAVE TO DIAGNOSE IT FURTHER BUT THEY TOLD ME THAT IT IS MOST LIKELY THE GAS TANK THAT IS LEAKING AND THEY HAVE SEEN MANY PROBLEMS LIKE THIS ALREADY AND I AM NOT THE FIRST ONE. THEY ALSO TOLD ME THAT DODGE HAS UPDATED THE FUEL TANK RECENTLY SO OBVIOUSLY THERE IS A FLAW WITH THE OLD DESIGN WHICH IS PROBABLY WHY I AM HAVING PROBLEMS. NOT ONLY IS THIS A COSTLY REPAIR WHICH IS UNFAIR TO CONSUMERS BUT IT POSES DANGER SINCE FUEL IS LEAKING UNDER THE SEAT AND COULD POTENTIALLY IGNITE AND SET THE WHOLE CAR ON FIRE.
