Is this something to be worried about or should I just wipe it off and check it at the next oil change?...
Hi john43913,

Make an appointment so your dealer can inspect ASAP. Additionally, I'd like to escalate your case to your region's customer service manager so they can get involved. Please send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll get the ball rolling!

The fact is that it's leaking, and it's not going to stop, so you might as well take it in...

I'd work with FCS on this site and make sure you get a loaner car. I'd imagine your car will be in the shop for a couple of weeks depending on how quickly they can jump on it. With this sort of repair, they should keep the car after the repair, and drive it to be sure that it was done correctly. I'd write down the odo reading- as I always do- but don't be surprised to see 50 miles or so more than you had when you dropped it off. They should make sure that it has as least as much fuel in it as it had when you dropped it off...

Take 'er in to the dealer.
Thanks for all the great info, folks. I'm sure john43913 appreciates it!

Have a great weekend!
