The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that it has opened an investigation into 33,000 2004 Chevrolet Corvettes over complaints of leaky fuel tanks. NHTSA said that it opened an investigation after getting 30 complaints from customers “alleging either liquid fuel or fuel vapor leaking from a fuel tank.”

In 12 of the reports, a fuel tank was replaced or identified as the source of the leak. The Corvette has two fuel tanks.

“We are aware of the NHTSA investigation into the 2004 Corvette and are cooperating with the agency,” GM spokesman Alan Adler. Adler said he wasn’t aware of any reported injuries or accidents.
