Question about 1994 Ford Ranger Supercab
The ranger has the 4.0 6 cyl.in it. I started to smell the fumes a couple of days ago. It first smelled like a grass fire coming through the a/c vents then later that day a very strong odor of raw gas,turned off a/c rolled down windows pulled over no leaks anywhere.It seems to happen at normal operating temperature. The truck is in good running condition with no check engine light on. I was just wandering if anyone has had a similar problem and know what the problem may be? Thanks in advance any suggestions would be helpful.
SOURCE: Gas fumes very strong in car.
need to have checked possibly an injector leaking car is not safe to drive if you have a fuel leak. look in engine compartment and see if you can see a leak

I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.

I would suggest taking this to the dealer....it could be coming through the a.c. vents. Since its a brand new truck....let them **** with it.

SOURCE: 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.

Try having the area that the hose was disconnected from steamed cleaned, or go to a car wash wash and spray the area. It might help, that is if you already haven't done so.

P0443 The fuel vapor canister reduces that gas smell on hot days outside/inside of car. The fuel vapor canister fillers bad smells from gas tank on hot days when the gas expands and burps fumes through carbon canister filter. From the canister (gas vapor fumes) goes back into the engine to be burned again...it's a closed loop for vapors to be recycled though engine. Don't worry, once the carbon canister dries out and no longer flooded with raw fuel the code should go away...just don't let the top off fuel tank back flow into the 'Evap emission control' carbon filter near the top and close to the gas cap...:)
