    My 2002 Kia Sportage has an evaporative emissions leak. PO440 code comes up when tested. Check engine light comes on now and then. Always smells like gas inside my car also. I am going to have it smoked to find the leak hopefully. But you say Pat, to have the cat checked? I will do that. Thank you

My truck smeels of gas when starting and idling and runs a little rough with a miss almost, no gas leak just seems like its getting to much fuel what do i do?


engine is running too rich.

probably a sensor. Check the Oxygen sensor, throttle position sensor and fuel injectors
after that check fuel pump.

Usually if you can smell it the coolant is leaking somewhere.
Are you adding coolant from time to time ?

When driving i can smell gas in my 2000 lexus es300


possibly your O rings which isolates fuel injectors from engine block are getting old and letting gasoline go out. it is very dangerous since it can cause fire. do not drive.

another cause is broken loose or cracked fuel lines. this is equally dangerous since it is under hood close to hot exhaust manifold.

if smell is from exhaust manifold, which means not the smeel of gasoline but exhaust fumes, this can be caused by broken exhaust manifold or a crack on it or problematic exhaust manifold gasket.

MY CAR SMEELS LIKE GAS IN THE BACK SEAT SOMETIMES I DONT THINK THE GAS TANK ITS LEAKING WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?


Sounds like your fuel lines are leaking, These are located on top of the fuel tank, There is 4 lines that come from the pump . One may have rubbed a hole in the return line and getting fumes inside the auto.If so these have to be replaced by removing fuel tank and removing fuel lines. Good luck to you.

Very poor gas milage. I smeel gas but do not see any on the ground uder the truck any where. Why can this be ?


if truck is fuel injection then you probly have bad emission control parts like egr or egr vacuum control solenoid or could be ignition problem like bad coil or distributor not sure which your truck has dont know what engine you have. Its possible you may just need tune up and fuel system cleaned.

If the smell of raw gas is constant, you need to start the car and while the car is running check for gas leaking from a gas line

Gas smell inside car and when refueling it constantly stops like the tank were full


beetles have what they call a "positive pressure"gas tank(the vent is in the cap)and it has a restriction in the filler to stop fuel leaking out if the car overturns.So if you try to put too much fuel in it will kickback and fill the recess in the fender.hence smell in car after refilling.......
(had 30 plus beetles in 3 years all great....when i worked for vw).
