    Do you smell the gas odor in the engine compartment also? Do you smell it more when the AC/heater blower is on? If you have a gas leak in the engine, you AC/heater air intake is near the engine and could be drawing in the odor.

I have the same gas smell problme too esepcially in cold days. There are a few piece of rubber hoses connecting to 2-3 sections of fuel injection metal tubes. Get a long and thin fillip screw driver and tighten those clamp screws on the rubber hoses.

I purchased a 93 Villager in 1999 and it developed a gasoline smell inside. The problem was the fuel filler hose / pipe that was covered by a manufacturer's recall. It was repaired by the Mercury dealer at no cost to me. You should contact the local Mercury dealer. This year Villager also had a problem with the crankshaft breaking, although they never had a recall for that problem, the crankshaft diameter was increased for the 94 and newer models.

    I just checked www.edmunds.com for the recalls listed for the 93 Villager and it still shows up, check it out.

Fumes is coming out of the exhuust. strong smell, what to do.


If it is a strong smell of gas it could be your fuel pressure regulator going bad. If you have not changed the air filter lately it could be as simple as the engine not getting the correct amount of air mixture with the fuel. It could also be your converter clogging up and that is not good because that usually is the most expensive part.

I overfilled my Jeep Grand Cherokee on my first fill up and now I smell gas every time I fill up. I now stop at the click. I am told it is probably my charcoal filter because I keep smelling gas and the...


The charcoal filter is used to filter fumes from the fuel tank. There is a vent line, that comes from your fuel tank to this filter. (Charcoal canister)

Now since the charcoal filter has been completely soaked with gasoline, it will no longer function as it should. Even with vapors from the fuel tank vent line, the canister only has a working 'life' of so far.
You will smell gasoline in strong amounts until it is replaced.

Can't comment whether it is safe or not. (In my thinking, you are driving around with a charcoal canister, that has a charcoal filter soaked with gasoline. I wouldn't use it this way, but that is just my thoughts)

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.
