Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
For the last month I have been able to smell gas fumes in my car. I am really aware of the problem when entering or exiting the vehicle. I am not currently have any problems with the vehicle, but I since there may be a problem and I am wanting to intervene or prevent a serious problem from occurring. Please let me know what type of things could be happening to produce the noticeable gas fumes, so that I may have my car checked by a licensed mechanic.
The problem sounds like a vent hose has came off from the gasoline fill pipe. lots of car have the gassoline fill pipe running thru the trunk of the car. If by chance you were moving idems around in the trunk you could have broke off the vent hose. Not likely but possible, it is also possible that the hose is off on the out side. That is the fill pipe does not go into the trunk but runs in the finder well to the tank. Snow, Ice and Mud can take off the vent hose if the clamp is loose or the hose is split you will smell fumes. You do not smell them while driving as they are blown away. Check around the gasoline fill pipe area for gas fumes. The problem could also be at the tank end of the fill or vent hose. You may need a repair shop to fix.

Hi! You certainly have a gas leak, that could be emanating from your fuel tank area that is situated at the rear of the car,which is partly accessible by removing the rear seat of the car.This leaking fumes is very dangerous.You should treat this urgently.
