Remove the passenger rear tire. Remove the plastic shield covering the filler tube, usually 2 or 3 small bolts. Then clean away the debris and look/smell carefully. The filler tubes DO rust through and post a P044x code.
Some have not replaced the cover after replacing the filler pipe. Their choice. I would prefer to remove it, clean under it and reinstall. Maybe make it part of the 60k service. The cover is there to prevent damage from road debris especially those pieces flipped up by the tires. So it does have a purpose other than to trap debris and cause the filler to rot.
