Question about 2007 Kia Sedona LX Minivan
If you can smell fuel then something is wrong. if you smell it only out of the tailpipe then if there was a problem the check engine light would be lit up. raw fuel could be leaking at a fuel line or component and unless is severe would not cause a engine light.you didnt state what your mileage is your getting but alot of things cause poor mileage number one is driving conditions and habits.you can increase gas mileage more than 15 miles to the gallon on alot of cars just by paying attention to driving habits. also it is important to clean the throttle body regularly. a dirty one causes all kinds of problems and low fuel mileage is one of them.it needs to be physically cleaned,no in tank treatment or additives will do the job.if you take to a shop make sure you see a tech taking of air intake tube and cleaning it with some sray AND a brush. some shops just put additives in the gas and oil and sometimes in a vacuum hose or throug the fuel rail.it is an inexspensive service [when not included in a fuel injection cleaning package] and should be done at 30,000 miles or sooner depending on drive conditions etc.
