A lot of Nissan models have an inspection cover in the trunk that you can remove to get at the fuel pump in the gas tank. If not there, perhaps under rear seat, but should be in trunk. Locate it, remove it and have a look for possibility of broken or cracked piece of fuel line hose attached to pump, or look around for other source of your leak. Careful with trouble light near fumes!! Use a good flashlight if you can. Be sure to relieve system pressure before doing anything on fuel lines if that's the problem.

Hyundai accent is 2009 model. On a really hot day the car smells badly of petrol. Smell mainly in the back seats. Especially strong in the trunk (dicky). Took it to two different dealers. Here are same...


Coolant smells like fuel, i think you need to find a new mechanic, obviously there is a problem around the fuel tank, does it do it all the time, what about when tank is half??? I would be checking the fuel tank breather, fill fuel right up to the top, go on a bumpy road or just do a sharp left and right (safe speed) and have a look underneath where the tank is to see if there are any wet patches, if there is a leak then you have found the problem, just need to find where the leak is. If there is no leak than i would deffinately have the breather checked out, one other thing to check would be your fuel filler cap, either way this problem should not be there and be fixed by Hyundai, it is a serious health problem!!!

Car smells of petrol also drinkiong alot of petrol?


Lets start with the simple stuff first. Look under the car see if its leaking gas possibly from the gas tank or the gas line. Then with the car not running look around the engine compartment and see if you see any gas leaking. Also if the gas smell is stronger in the engine compartment. Look at your gas line especially toward the top of the engine you may spot the leak. I need to caution you if the leak is in the engine compartment and your handy and you can repair it that's excellent. But if you do spot the leak it might be very dangerous to drive the car somewhere. Gas leaks can be very hazardous if they are in the engine compartment. If your not handy then I would recommend you contact your local auto repair shop for repairs.

I hope this helps you out, if it does please give me a YES on the web page you just recieved my response on. Thank you.

Petrol sniffing


you might have a leak on to your engine and its burning off, that is where the smell is coming from, turn on your car and check for leaks.

The way to check your coils is to start the car and unplug them one by one and see if the note changes, if you unplug one and the note dosnt change then thats the one thats fried.By swapping them around itl still be down a cylinder and will be hard to tell.But yes i bet it will be a coil as i have a nissan also and they do fail and makes it sound like a subaru and smell off petrol.I hope this helps.
P.S i love those S13 200sx, great shape.

Hi there, just under the rear seats is where the fuel tank sender unit is and sometimes the seal will leak out strong smell of petrol, you need to remove the rear seats and the sender unit cap and check the seal, may need replacing, hope this helps.
