    1. 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.
