i think the o-rings in the fuel system were recalled...i forget. but there is definitely 100% a recall on this. if you smell gas or see gas, it goes to the dealer. if they don't wanna fix it the right way, start calling the numbers in your owners manual and you will get your way.

it wasn't the O Rings, it was the fuel lines themselves... I had the same issue, the lines coming out of the tank are plastic and they crack... they replaced them with copper ones I think.

I wanna know what GM smartass thought plastic would suffice as fuel plumbing!
