SOURCE: toyota previa petrol smell

I had similar problem some months ago it turned out to be the pipe under wheel arch (corroded) where cap filler is.
my problem was solved by replacing pipe which is connected to rubber pipe fixed to tank and filler hose from filler cap.
tools neede llong large cross head screwdriver, small socket set ( 12 mm , 13mm , 14mm) 150 mm extension bar. to remove bracket bolts
possibly some new pipe clips as others may be corroded.
you will need to jack up car and remove wheel to gain access.
took me about 1 hr, somebody with competent DIY skills should be able to deal in couple of hrs
check with dealer as there are two different pipes on different models one is longer.
my one was the one with the piggybacked overflow pipe.
small hands are advantage

A lot of Nissan models have an inspection cover in the trunk that you can remove to get at the fuel pump in the gas tank. If not there, perhaps under rear seat, but should be in trunk. Locate it, remove it and have a look for possibility of broken or cracked piece of fuel line hose attached to pump, or look around for other source of your leak. Careful with trouble light near fumes!! Use a good flashlight if you can. Be sure to relieve system pressure before doing anything on fuel lines if that's the problem.

Hi,I have a 98 EL falcon that when I put over 3/4 of petrol in it, it will leak somewhere and fill up the well on top of the pump,only does this when over 3/4 car runs well?


i am thinking that the seal around the pump / fuel gauge is faulty and the extra fuel level up the hose is leaking out
it could be the fill hose to the tank has perished and cracked leaking the fuel out or the clamp is loose
what ever it is imperative that you fix the fault quickly as loose fuel is dangerous

Does petrol tank leaks when overfilled i fillled up the petrol in Murano 2012 and its started leaking. local mechanics checked the gasket found it missing he replaced it this stoped the leaking for a week...


Yep,breather is necessary.Breather line is draining it under the car,less dangerous.Do not feel it to the top.Replace the draining line,dust/water may find a way into the tank,later u'll have to deal it (fuel filter,cloged fuel lines,fuel pump malfunction,fuel gauge malfunction).Track the problem eliminate the hipoteses of a cracked tank,loosed fuel pump.Cheers.

Petrol smell in side the car


Possible there is leak or a joint fault in the fill cap, the fuel tank filling hose clamp , the fuel line to the fuel pump , fuel filter.
Now since petrol is highly volatile a small gap can make the gas smell into the cabin. Please start your check from the tank to the pump and the return fuel pipe, checking for leaks which can be easily tightened or a faulty fuel line changed.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.

L have an escort mk6,l have a full tank of petrol,today l notice there is a smell of petrol by the tank


In most cases like this, the petrol tank was over-filled (petrol was "nursed in" and saturated the fuel vapour charcoal canister. It may take some time for the canister to dry enough and rid the apparent fuel vapour smell. If not, you may want to consider changing the charcoal canister.

You also may want to check for leaks or loose fittings from the filler nozzle to the tank as well.

I hope this helps! :)
