Strong Gasoline smell after my CRV motor is turned off

I have a 2002 CVR. I always secure the gas cap. The Honda dealer checked for leaks and found none. They recommend that i not buy cheap gas. I disagree. I never had this problem with my 2000 CRV.

    Since this CRV has 92000 plus miles, could it be a fuel filter problem? Is there a fuel filter near the gas tank? Thanks...

    02 CRV. I have a stong gas smell coming from under car after driving at least 20 minutes and parking in garage. I've replaced fuel cap, fuel filler neck, charcoal filter and fuel pump seal. When I lift the access panel to the fuel pump, I can smell gas. Ideas?

Strong gasoline smell outside of vehicle. will replacing the gas cap help?

I had this problem and it was a leaking fuel tank (actually the place where the tube going to the place where you pump gas connects to the Gas Tank). The dealer fixed it for free, there was a special policy adjustment on this known problem.

2002 oldsmobile bravada,have a strong gas smell in the air cleaner

Take the air cleaner off and open the throttle (have someone hold the gas pedal to the floor) and look down into the intake manifold, if you see gasoline, the Fuel Pressure Regulator may be leaking sometimes there are plastic fuel lines inside that can leak also. When either of these leak, the engine should run REAL BAD/RICH. Black smoke coming from tail pipe.

Gasoline Smell as soon as car is turned off. No Air Conditioner.

not much to go off here, but i would think if you are always smelling the gas after you shut it off and it is not someone around you, then yes, you have a leak. This leak could be the gas cap even. Sometimes o-rings on the fuel rail can go bad causing it to drain off the excess gas when shut off. but you would notice really bad gas milage. I hope this helps as your description was pretty vague.

2002 mazda miata mx5 has strong gasoline smell in trunk. Had smoke test done at dealership and showed no leaks. Help.

The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?

Gas odor when at stops sign or parking in garage

I recently had the same problem. It turned out that the fuel regulator on the engine at the left side just above the intake manifold had an intermitent leak. The gas leaking was not always visible so I had the regulator changed and that solved the problem.

Gasoline Smell

you may have a small hole in the exhaust line somewhere (I had one just past the cat converter on my Honda). Have Meineke check it out for you (they'll look for free!)

May I suggest a locking gas cap. You could put a large piece of cardboard under your car and if there are any drops the next morning that smell like gasoline you might find the leak if there is one.
