Mercedes Fuel Leak Probe Closed by NHTSA

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has closed a probe looking into Mercedes E-Class vehicles for a fuel leak issue.

To remedy the situation, Mercedes has extended the original warranty coverage to 15 years and unlimited mileage on “Covered Fuel Tank Components,” which includes the gas tank, fuel filter/sender, fuel pump, gaskets/seals and retention rings. Owners were complaining of a strong fuel odour right after they would fill the gas tanks of their cars, and NHTSA found that gas can weep or seep through micro-cracks in the fuel filler componenets, causing it to pool or gather on top of the gas tank or other components.
