Testimonial: "wow this is really scary. Got the car long after it was brought out, had no idea there had been a recall.Thanks for the info. Wondering what to do now"
Check first if the smell comes from the engine bay. Check if the smell of gas there is stronger than usual. IF it is check the charcoal filter, the cylindrical canister that has a vacuum hose connected to it to filter the smell. Check if there are loose hoses. You may also want to check for openings on the wall that separates the cabin and the engine. Check the fuel tank and the fuel lines for leaks. It could also be that the car is running too rich that the smell can be noticed.
