Benz fuel smell / leak notice

I have a '07 CLS550 AMG with this problem. Multiple models affected.

On February 14, 2012, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into "fuel leakage at or near the top of the fuel tank assembly in model year 2003-2006 Mercedes Benz E55 AMG sedans and wagons [...] and E-Class vehicles."

On March 15, 2013, NHTSA announced that it had upgraded its Preliminary Evaluation to an Engineering Analysis and expanded the scope of the investigation to include 2003-2008 model year E-Class vehicles. An engineering analysis may lead to a recall of affected vehicles, which may require Mercedes to repair your vehicle at no expense to you. As part of its investigation and analysis of defective vehicles, NHTSA relies heavily on consumer complaints. If you have not filed a formal complaint with NHTSA regarding your vehicle, please do so immediately. In order to file a complaint, you will only need your vehicle’s VIN number and a description of the problems you are experiencing. You can complete the complaint process online at
or by phone at 1-888-327-4236.
