It is nmore than likely to be your Vapor recovery system. If you have topped off your tank a fuw times and liquid fuel enters the vapor recovery cabister it will tend to expel what it can't hold. The canister is for vapors and not liquid, so not to worry, Just don't pack you fuel tank on fill ups. Good luck

Gas ascape


Take note if after you have the refrigerant recharged, if there is an unpleasant odor inside the car after a few minutes or a few hours (with the windows up). If so, your refrigerant leak is probably in the evaporator coil behind the dashboard. If you do not notice any odor after recharging the A/C, then add some leak-detecting dye with the freon charge to see if you can tell where the leak is.

My husband has a 99 Ford Ranger 4WD and is stranded at work. He said it is telling him to push the fuel reset button, and he cannot find this button in his manual?



RESETTING THE SWITCH

See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF .
  2. Ensure that there is no fuel leaking in the engine compartment, along any of the lines or at the tank. There should be no odor of fuel as well.
  3. If no leakage and/or odor is apparent, reset the switch by pushing the reset button on the top of the switch.

You may need to pull the carpet down and away from the instrument panel in order to access the switch.

Why does my engine oil smells like gas, and when i drive there is a lous gas odor in the car


You might have a leaking fuel injector, which is dumping fuel into it's respective engine cylinder, which then leaks down into the crankcase where the engine oil is. Then, as you drive, the gas is evaporating and getting into the car through the vents. It's a very serious, possibly explosive problem anytime you have excessive gas in your engine oil. Have it looked at and repaired immediately.

Smell of gas while driving


If you smell gas while driving, check for leaks first.
Look under the chassis near the gas filler neck. Check under the hood for raw gas odor around the engine. If your hoses are not leaking, your car may need a tuneup. It could be burning too rich.

Strong gas odor


  1. The fuel lines may have a leak: Replace leaking fuel lines and/or fuel line fittings.
  2. The engine may have mechanical problems: Check vacuum lines and fittings for leaks. Check engine compression. Check for broken fittings and mounts.
  3. The fuel pressure regulator may be operating at too high a pressure: Perform fuel pressure test and repair or replace faulty component(s).
  4. The ignition timing may be set wrong: Check and adjust ignition timing.
  5. The fuel injectors may leak: Clean or replace fuel injectors.

Gas odor coming through the vent when heat is on


Did you check for any gas leaks ? Check for gas leaks all over the engine. This is not supposed to happen. There is no way that the gas could get into the cooling system. The odor has to be coming from a leak or maybe the carburator (if equipped) flooded. If the odor goes away. , it may have just been too much gas to the fuel system.

Gasoline odor


Oh yes there is and there is a charcol canister up under the hood that captures the vapors if the canister is full you could smell fuel.
You will need a shop that has a SMOKE MACHINE to find the leak in the evaporative emissions plumbing from the tank to the engine compartment.
