Did you check the fuel pump? It is faulty in our 2001 S60's. They have an extended warranty for 10 years (a way to not have to do a recall).

Smell gas while driving inside car


A leaking fuel line can be discovered by looking for gaspuddles under your car when parked. A fuel-injection line may also leak, causing you to notice the smell of gasfumes during and immediately after driving. A fuel-tank vent hose may also leak, causing unburned gas to exit your fuel system as vapor.24 Apr 2015

Gas smell coming from heater vents


if it makes a loud exhaust sound when cold its an exhaust leak. most likely the steel fuel line is leaking. check to make sure your air filter is clean.

Strong gas smell inside of car


is there a leak in your fuel line, or possibly your fuel filter, if you see raw gas leaking, then it is dangerous for you tio continue to drive it, it only takes one spark to ignite it, however, if the smell is just your car burning rich and the exhaust has holes in it, it will smell up the inside of your car. And yes if your carb. is burning too rich then it needs adjusted. Wasting your fuel, and overloading your engine. I hope some of this was helpfull.

Gas/oil smell coming in through heater


there is a opening somewhere under your hood in the area of the blower motor casing that is causing the smell. it is highly unlikely but possible that you have an oil leak but i dont think you have a gas leak. get it checked anyway to be safe. good luck

HI I have a 2004 Mazda RX8 and I smell GAS coming from the rear drivers side. I can smell it when I am inside the car for a bit..it is most noticeable after I park the car. I checked the gas cap to make...


I had the same problem last year with my rx8, I smelt gas inside the cabin, and every time I parked in the garage it would smell strongly of gas. I tried injector cleaner and everything, but nothing helped. About 4 months after i started to notice the smell, one of my fuel injectors blew, I believe the small was coming from the crack in it, I would suggest you get you injectors checked, After the blow, I got it fixed, they rebuilt the injector for about $300 cad. and it runs great now,

Hoped this helps

My car has a strong gas smell on the right side of my car. We jacked it up and noticed it was wet underneath the car. My gas miles have been good & it doesnt look like im loosing any gas quick it just...


don't know year make model but if you can smell gas and you see wetness underneath you should have it checked out. a small leak even though your not loosing much gas can be deadly especially if vehicle is in a garage or closed area cause the gas vapor is more of a problem than raw gas. there are lots of places that the leak could be coming from tank, lines, filter, evap system or the charcoal canister. much better to be safe than sorry, no need to have a major problem (possibly life threatening) develop over something that may be able to be fixed before hand.

I smell gas while driving


Hi, a raw gas smell certainly indicates a leak, if you cannot see a damp area, you may want to check very closely around the fuel tank area. Sometimes the tanks are prone to rust, also the fuel lines on the frame rail are prone to rot out. It may not be easy to find unless iy is on a lift. If you cannot see where it is leaking, I suggest you bring it to a shop, and have the lines inspected. Good luck...coop442000

Gas smell outside of car. unable to see any leaks, car runs fine


Hows your gas milage or do you have any check engine lights come on?Usually if theres no leakage signs its an indication of the evap system leaking.That is recycling of the gas fumes.Its a vacuum system that is now manditory on cars.Thats usually rhe answer when theres no leaking happening.After driving awile open your gas cap,see if you get a vacuum sound when you open it.
