I smell gas in the cabin of my 2008 chevy impala, it has 70,000 miles ... the smell wont go away any answers??


smell gas in the cabin Kenny, Fuel line is probably leaking, would have checked immediately by a qualified tech. This could be extremely dangerous if fuel is spraying/leaking on hot surface such as exhaust.

Fuel leak


check under the hood for any leaks from the fuel line, which comes up in front of the firewall and then turns back toward the engine. from the rear.
This could be a vacuum line leaking to the exhaust canister, it could be a leak near the fuel tank or filler coming from a vapor recovery line that goes to the engine compartment. Check the trunk to see if it has that smell. If so, check for a vacuum line under the car and see if it is unhooked and/or cracked. (does the smell get worse after you've filled the tank?) If so, this may be the culprit.
Replace these lines as necessary.

Good luck.

There is an odor of gas coming from underneath right passenger door


The fuel filter is located there and it could be leaking and the exhaust can leak and it'll smell like fuel. theirs also vent lines for the tank ( plastic) that go from the tank to the canister ( evaprotive emissions ) If someone jacking up the car could damage them to and they will smell alot bur not leak wet gas. Inspect the car or have it inspected by someone who can get under the car( or raise it up) and check everything that can leak as a fuel leak can cause a very bad problem to happen.

I need an easy way to find a fuel leak or suggestions where to look? i can smell gas when it is running only. it can sit long periods without losing any fuel


most probably its coming from the tank or in that area, best way is to wash the underneath and when its dry start it and check all the lines and around the tank for leaks, oh yeah you may need a hoist to do this,

My car is smelling like gas.


From where? you haven't given enough info, but put a large piece of flattened cardboard under the car to see if any is leaking. You will then be able to see what general area it's coming from--if there is a leak.

It could be a fuel injector(s) or even something very simple. When is the last time you had a tune-up, including a new fuel filter? If it's been more than two years, it's overdue. That means new oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs.If your car has a distributor, you should also replace the distributor cap and rotor (cap).

Try to locate a specific area where the smell is coming from. Breathing gas fumes is not healthy!

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

If you have ANY DAMP SURFACE AT ALL on that Tank You DO Have a Leak and it Must be Found,
The Steal Fuel Lines around the tank Get Rusty and Leak You must ELIMINATE Any POSSIBLE Leak, as this can Turn into A Tragidy.

Fuel smell in camaro


50 miles reduction in the conditions mentioned means that your economy is about right
there is a small hose back from the tank to under the cap to release air trapped when filling
koses can get loose , crack or break
tank sender units gaskets can break down
look around the tank area for the leak /smell
a damp patch in the dust is a good give away
