1997 Cadillac sts smells of gasoline inside of car, what can it be from???


Look under the hood in the engine compartment an see if there is fuel leaking from a fuel hose or fuel pressure regulator . The gas smell will be stronger under the hood ! If you don't find anything I would take to a repair shop before it catches fire an burns up !

sometimes if a fuel pressure regulator goes bad , you will be able to smell fuel fumes under hood. a leaking pressure regulator will cause---hard starting, poor fuel economy, stalling, check engine light, gas smell under hood. also check all fuel lines under hood.

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.

What will cause a strong gas smell after turning off engine


Check the fuel cap gasket to be sure it is not torn or worn. After that check the vent hoses that run from the fuel tank to the charcole canister located somonwhere under the hood. Is the smell stronger under the hood or toward the rear of the car? If you cannot find the problem, a fuel leak is dangerous and should be attended to ASAp by somone that has the experience to repair the problem
Good Luck
