problem #2

Vehicle was stationary and smelled of gas. Took to mechanic who provided evidence that the fuel tank is leaking fuel. The mechanic provided pictures of the tank which looks to have abnormal damage. Does not seem that tanks would leak in the evidenced manner. Contacted both Mitsubishi dealership and Mitsubishi manufacturer who could not provide replacement tank in timely manner and were not willing to address the safety issue raised regarding the status of the fuel tank. The vehicle has not been driven far at all due to the pandemic and there has not been a reason to be concerned about damage to the fuel tank from the perspective of the driver/owner.
