I've been smelling fuel (only on a full tank) for about a year now but today was the first time it showed the EVAP code. I cleared the code and drove to 1/4 tank then filled up. The smell is still there but the code didn't come back. VW checked it for liquid leaks last year and didn't find any. I'm gone to either have them look at it more and/or do it myself. What was the labor cost to drop the tank? I'm going to get an estimate on that too.

I'm out of town the rest of this month. I'll get my wife to take a photo of the invoice and I'll post it up here.

Hopefully these MP4 videos load automatically . . .

I did the 80K mile service as well, but this page of the invoice lists the lab0r and parts for replacing the tank.

I like that smoke test, didn't know about that and will have them do it. Thanks for the invoice, on the gas tank replacement, what is "CPV"?

Okay, thanks. Now I know what I'm up against at least for labor if the tank needs to come out. I will have to go back to the dealer and ask about that EVAP smoke test.

They can't find a leak, not even with the smoke test, but I smell it.

After fill up, do you have evidence of a leak on our garage floor?

Yes, it leaks (only recently) anything above 3/4 of a tank.

I found out that this is recall 08V156000, which may be moot since you've already paid for the repair.
