Question about 1997 Mercury Villager
When the weather is warm, as it is often in Tucson, there is a very strong odor of gas inside the vehicle after it's been driven for a while. It seems to be coming from the gas filler area, as opposed to inside the engine compartment.
A common problem with Nissan products, which this van is a Nissan Quest with Mercury trim.
There are several small rubber fuel hoses around the intake. When the air temp is cold these hoses can leak and then stop leaking when the air temp warms up.
When the air temp is cold, look around the intake with the engine running and you should see one of the hoses wet with fuel.
Just tighten the clamp.
