Some 2014 and 2015 model year Chevrolet Corvette vehicles may have a condition where a fuel odor is detected, fuel droplets appear below the left-hand fuel tank (driver side) with fuel gauge level above 1/2, or a malfunction indicator lamp illuminates due to a leak path in the left-hand (driver side) fuel tank at the Inlet Check Valve (ICV) to fuel tank shell interface.

I purchased a 2015 Z51 Coupe from Longview Chevrolet ( 3rd owner) 2300 miles on the clock. Drove it from Texas to Colorado and experienced this problem on my return trip. My dealer in Denver Colorado had to fix this exact problem. I noticed strong fuel Vapor odor and liquid dripping from left side of vehicle.
