My 2000 Chrysler Town and country van which I purchased new from a braun mobility dealer in Oklahoma has smelled like gas for a long time. I especially noticed it after I filled up the tank. I thought that it was from being over filled. The smell continued to get worse so I finally investigated further with my dealer. I was told that the braun mobility corporation had to remove the original Chrysler fuel tank and install a braun fuel tank for the mobility portion of the van to work. The van has a ramp that allows a wheelchair access. The dealer informed me that they have had 9 braun fuel tanks leak due to a warp in the plastic braun tank. My van has never been wrecked, it has always been stored in a garage, it is in almost new condition and is all original. I have never heard of a gas tank not outlasting a car. My intentions are to keep this van for as long as it is practical. The braun conversion is very expensive but is worth almost nothing on the used market. I consider this issue to be worth of a recall. I also consider this issue to be a major life safety concern that needs to be investigated immediately before somebody dies. The mechanic at the dealer told me not to drive the car under any circumstances until the new tank is installed. The new tank was installed and I noticed it is a totally new and improved design that supposedly doesn't warp. I have written braun through the braun dealer but have given up on getting a response. I understand replacing parts that have normal wear. Transmissions go out, brakes wear out, air filters need changed, engines lose compression over time, spark plugs need replaced, but a gas tank" I've never heard of a gas tank warping and leaking fuel. Am I crazy"
