2005 Mercedes benz E320 Fuel Propulsion System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID945905
 Internal NHTSA #10480056
 ManufacurerMercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
 BrandMERCEDES BENZ
 ModelE320
 Model Year2005
 File date06/02/12
 ComponentFUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemEvery time the car is filled up with gas, there is a very strong gas smell inside and outside of the vehicle. Removed the back seat and the plate that covers the fuel sending unit and gas puddles up around the seal of the sending unit. Had seal replaced, but that only helped for about a month. It only does this when tank is full (probably due to the pressure in the tank). This problem seems to be getting worse and i try to avoid filling tank completely, but sometimes it's hard to tell when it's getting close to full. The problem only seems to occur on the driver's side of the car, even though there is also a sending unit on the passenger side.
