Is the check engine light on ?
If the venting system for the tank is leaking, the warning light should be on.
A shop could check for vapor leaks with an exhaust gas analyzer.

SOURCE: gas leak and smell coming from top right rear side

Check to make sure its not a leak. If its a leak, there is a product at Most Auto part stores that will stop a leak even when its leaking gas. If this doesnt work, you would have to remove the tank for repair or replacement.

SOURCE: gasoline smell off and on

Have them check EGR tubes, and any hoses, or tubes running to the exhaust. My guess is ones leaking while driving & getting drawn up into the incoming air at the cowl.

SOURCE: gasoline smell coming from the rear of car.

Hi my name if Tom and I am here to help you.

I have had my share of cars with gas smells and these are very serious problems. Do not drive without a window open so as not to feel the affects of the gas vapor.

One reason could be that you have filled the cars gas tank too high and the fumes are getting into the car. Another cause is gas has gotten into your trunk and this leads directly to your back seat.

If I can get more info from you, I could pin point your problem.

Oil drip with oil smells like gasoline

Could be 2 problems. Some rear main seals leak with oil flowing out where trans joins engine. You should crawl under vehicle and look directly up from oil leak, If inside garage use a newpaper to catch current drip.

Gassy oil can be leaking fuel injector draining into oil pan. Sometimes dirty fuel injector will stay open and fuel pressure will continue to drain into motor after vehicle is off. Sometimes stuff like seafoam will clean injectors.

I smell gas a little in my 1990 ford taurus any idea where to start looking???

First, take a quick sniff of the exhaust when the engine is idling. If you smell gas there, check your spark plugs and wires to eliminate misfires, then check for leaky fuel injectors (leaking excess fuel into a cylinder).

If the exhaust smells normal, you'll need to inspect the fuel delivery system. The most probable place for a leak would be the fuel lines under the car; it's old enough that a line could be rusted through and have a pinhole leak somewhere. If you suspect a spot but want to verify it by turning on the engine to pressurize the line, be sure to wear safety goggles. You don't want gasoline sprayed in your eyes.

Gasoline smell coming from my ac vents 2000 ford tarus

Sounds like you got yourself a gas leak towards the front of the car. Turn the car on and check the supply and return lines in the engine bay. Next check the fuel rails. Finally look around the injectors.

Strong odor of gasoline vapors

do u have a check engine light on? do u overfill the tank? which is to say when the filler nozzle clicks off do u still try to put more fuel in? in any event u most likely have a overloaded carbon canister, pull the canister out and check it for gasoline saturation, the carbon canister is located under the car in a tray near the fuel tank.
