Agreed with Scot there, bet there is a leak in a fuel line under the hood somewhere. Obvious first places to check are where the lines come up by the firewall just in front of the cab. Other spots I'd check are all over the top of the engine since that is the closest place to the ventilation intake. Also just to be thurough take a close look at all the lines that run all the way under the car because it might be gettint into the ventilator some other way.
One other thought, are you certain it is fuel? Any other automotive fluids it could be, for instance WE40 that might have been used on the vent doors or wiper arms? Maybe there could also be a leaky bottle of fuel treatment lost under the dash? Good luck with that.

Can you tell me why my truck smells antifreezy when I started

Is the heater or ac fan on....? Where is the smell coming from?

my thought are if smell coming from exhaust, you have a head gasket problem.

If smell coming from AC or heater, likely a heater core leaking!

Fuel smell inside ford 2002 explorere when running air

Hey man odds are you have a small fuel leak under the hood probably like a pinhole in a fuel line. When you turn on the ac you are pulling air from the front of the vehicle in turn pulling in the fuel smell. Find and stop the leak and that should get rid of the smell in the cab when the ac is running.

Either a fuel line is leaking under the hood or your fuel injector seals are bad.

When the heater is on there is a very strong natural gas kind of smell inside our 2005 Yukon Denali. It seems to come from the vents... and seems to be worse when slowing down or idling. Had the vehicle...

Check under the hood and make sure there are no fuel lines leaking.You should be able to smell it.If you don`t know what to look for the take it to a garage or your dealer and have them look it over.It is not safe to drive if you smell fuel while driving.It could cause a fire under the hood.Good luck.

Do you have a: In Cabin Filter? Should be located and accessed on the passenger side below the leg panel of the dash. If not changed it will reek!!. Previous spills I use Baking Soda made into a paste and then steam clean!

Strong fuel smell from AC

If you're experiencing a strong fuel smell, there's most likely a leak in the engine compartment. The AC will cool incoming air unless the "recirculate" button is pressed. The incoming air is what has the fuel smell, indicating a leak in the engine compartment. CAUTION: leaking fuel in the engine compartment is extremely dangerous and can lead to a fire. Please have the car diagnosed by a professional immediately.

Loud noise from under the dash, ac/heater area. No cool air 97 li

If this noise is a clicking sound and is coming from the front center of the dash, then it may be the blender door motor which will require removal of the dash to replace it. It will keep the door from switching from heat to a/c. Does the odor smell like you have a freon leak in your a/c evaporator core or does it smell like a rat stuck in your heater and a/c ducts?

99 dodge dakota has gas smell in cab when heater or ac is on

sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!
