GAS TANK

2004 Cadillac CTS

Engine Performance problem
2004 Cadillac CTS 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 59000 miles

I have a 2004 CTS, the dealer said that I have a small leak in my gas tank and I should replace it. It cost at lot, nearly $2000.00. The reason I had it checked was that the warning light came on for tank. It happend once before and it was my gas cap not properly closed, I bought a new gas cap and the light went off after a couple of days. My question is,
Can fumes from the small leak enter inside my car and cause damage to my car and to my health?

Is it actually leaking out raw fuel or its just fuel vapor?

I don't know if it's leaking raw fuel or vapor, I was told that when it was checked, it was filled with nitrogen, and smoke came out indicating a small hole.

The Evap system is leaking and its not being purge back to the engine to be reburn. Get it fix otherwise you'll fail the state emission/smog test. Just smelling fuel vapor can harm you
