I think its a good idea since you live in one of the worst areas for rust and corrosion and your dealer is a good one. I deal with their parts and service quite often

Has the actual revised recall been issued for this yet?

Yes. I got my letter in mid-August, though I still need to decide when to schedule the repair. At the moment I am putting it off for a bit, in hopes that the fix for the passenger airbag sensor sensor comes out soon and I can have both recalls taken care of at once, since I am some distance from the nearest service center. However, at the moment it looks like the passenger airbag sensor recall will probably not exist before early 2020 at the soonest

Here is the mailed notice letter for the fuel system recall:

Yeah my appointment is December 3rd. They said they're pretty booked and trying to do 2-3 a week since can take 5 hours to do depending on if awd

Got the recall work done on my wife's Kizashi a few days ago. Dropped it off at 8am, and they called around 4 to tell me it's done. I made the appointment several weeks ago because they were booked 6 weeks out. The list of parts replaced was pretty extensive. I don't have the invoice in front of me, but I remember seeing fuel tank, cap, evap canister, and a few other bits.
The car doesn't behave any differently than it did before it went in, so I'd say they did a good job.

Good to know, time will tell. Who's 'they'?

Autoland Hyundai in Uniontown, PA. They used to be Autoland Hyundai/Suzuki, so they still do all the warranty and recall work for Suzukis. I believe the same Suzuki Technicians still work there. They've done all my recall work, (shifter bracket, CVT module, gas tank) and I never had a problem with their work.

Uniontown...that's way out below Cal U of PA as I recall, that's a long haul for me. Lucky you that they retained their trained zuk techs.
My ex-dealer lost theirs looong time ago. The techs they have now, that are worth anything, work the Alfas primarily, then their Fiats. They'll throw anyone else leftover with a pulse that's available on the zuks and other non-essentials to the Fiat/Alfa dealership brand. Let's face it, Zuks are old-news and has-beens on the priority scale. On top of that, it's warranty work to boot, and we all know the pay scale on that type of work. Can't say as I'd trust them any longer to reliably do something major like this tank work. Think I'll keep on rollin' the dice with this one. I'll continue to crack the gas cap every so often between weekly fill-ups to break any possible increase in tank vacuum as a precaution. That's far simpler and easier than dealing with this recall and the fallout from a highly possible rushed/botched 'warranty rate repair'.
