SOURCE: gasoline odor

You'll need to inspect every inch of the fuel system for leaks. I would start in the engine compartment. Chech injectors, fuel rail, lines to rail,etc. Check under car for leaks in lines, around tank. Use you nose to give you an idea where to start. Since it fills the passanger compartment I'm betting on the engine compartment in which the fumes could get in through the heater intake which is close.Look for wet spots. It could also be a leak in the evaporative emissions system which includes charcoal canister, purge system and lines but you'd probably have a check engine light with a problem in those systems. The hotter the vehicle and climate will make the leak harder to find due to evaporation.

SOURCE: 2000 Audi s4 has strong smell of gasoline

Pop the hood and check all the fueling lines, then check your gas tank and see if you just spilled some. Then check your exhaust pipes because you are probably running rich. You may need to change your spark plugs, or possibly a mass air flow sensor, or oxygen sensors. you should get either a vagcom to scan it or an OBD-II scanner.

SOURCE: Fuel gauge registers empty after fill up

It sounds to me like you have a short in your wiring harness at you fuel tank. there is a plug on top of your fuel tank that controls you fuel pump and your sending unit that tells you how much fuel is in the tank. This plug can be a real p.i.a to get to on some vehicles, you may have to take the vehicle to a shop to fix it, if you are not mechanically inclined.

SOURCE: Grand am smells like gas inside the car

I would definatly recheck the regulator to make certain you do not have any leaks.
But to be clear, you are smelling gas and not exhaust?
Also, is you cowl seal in good shape, not missing or damaged in any way?
Let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: strong smell of gas inside and outside the vehicle

there can either be a hole in the tank or in the carbon filter of the fuel system. or a bad seal on a hose leading to that Carbon filter. But assuming that the smel is stronger at the rearside, it is more likely to be an issue around the gas tank. Maybe if the belly 'sat' on a rock it could be even on the upper part of the tank(but not that likely, rather a joint again)

rate please

What causes strong petrol smell in cabin of Ford Ka?


Most fuel smells inside the vehicle are the result of leaks in the fuel system. Have all fuel lines and injectors/seals inspected for leaks/seepage

I have a 1999 Elantra 2.0L. It is overfueling with gas smelling in the car, very high fuel consumption. Could it be a faulty or dirty crank sensor


The most common cause for this condition is a leaking purge valve located under the hood. This purge valve goes bad all of the time causing a few different conditions. It could go bad causing a hard start after filling up with fuel or it could be leaking fuel vapors causing this smell inside the vehicle you are describing.

Also, be sure to check the fuel-rail dampener, around the fuel pressure line, fuel injectors and o rings VERY carefully for any fuel leaking as this can cause a gas smell inside the vehicle.

Help with gas fumes smell


Was fuel smell present before you had fuel pump replaced? If yes I would sugest you drop tank and see if fuel vent hose is plugged forcing fuel back pressure line to vent through cap. If fuel smell was not present before you replaced fuel pump and seal. I would suggest you drop tank back out and check all fittings and hose conections. also if you still have old sending unit you could check to make sure they are exactly the same. As Sometimes you have to pull relief valve from old sending unit and install it in the new one, as some sending units wont have one in it. and some will have one that is regulated at a different fuel pressure. hope this helps Vic

Strong fuel smell around vehicle jacked vehicle


I have the exact same problem with my 2006 chevy cobalt right now. That's why I am searching this. I had a mechanic friend look at it and it's the fuel pump and the lines are cracked to. Has anyone heard of a recall on this? It can't be a coincidence that we are having the same issue.
