Question XLR Fuel Odor

I have a 2007 XLR with 18000 miles. I received a notice from Cadillac concerning a free dealer fix for "fuel droplets appearing below left hand fuel tank with fuel gauge above 1/2 or a malfunction indicator lamp illuminating due to a leak path in the left hand fuel pump module flange". This is a quote from the service bulletin. They will repair free on any vehicle that is 10 years old or with 120K miles on it.

I have not noticed this condition with my vehicle, but I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue. If anyone has, please describe your experience. Maybe we should start a survey?

Would enjoy hearing from you folks.

Kind Regards,

I had this problem five years ago. One of the gas tank inlet pipes had cracked and stunk up the whole garage. The tank was promptly replaced under GM's long-term warranty for this (safety) issue. The job is pretty major, so I'm glad it was on GM's dime.
