Fuel Leak 06 Cobalt

I am concerned about the fuel smell that is very strong toward the back of the car. I have removed the seat to see if there was an inspection panel for the top of the tank and one of the seems was soaked with fuel. I see where there is a recall in only certain states, which I do not understand. If any know of the details of the recall or how I can find out if mine is included. Last 6 of VIN 885439.

Any and all help and information is appreciated.

Call your local dealer, I bet your car is part of the fuel pump recall. Mine had the same issue, smell, location,etc. Along with bad mpg. Took it to a local Chevy dealer and they replaced the pump for free under the recall.
