From the sound of it you have a fuel leak somewhere. I have seen this to be the fuel pressure regulator under the hood on the fuel rail that leaks. If not, then you will have to locate the cause of the leak and have it repaired.

Hi Ed.
this is all i could find at the moment.
Gas Cap Causing Gasoline Smell in Car. I know it may seem obvious, but a loose or missing gas cap can cause a fuel smell in your vehicle. You could even have a faulty gas cap that is leaking fumes. A faulty gas cap can also cause the check engine light to illuminate with a DTC on newer cars.

My 2009 xf has just 34000 miles. Last week I start the engine and I could smell gas in the car for about 5 minutes. I waited until the smell was over to drive. From that day, every other day I was sme


Was this the smell of burnt fuel or raw gasoline? If this started after it began getting cold outside this can indicate a problem with the EVAP system in the car. This may or may not cause a check engine light.

They found the injector seals to be leaking.

2004 jeep grand cherokee 85,000 miles. code p303 (cylinder 3 misfire, right?) just had spark plugs replaced to try to solve problem - didn't work. check engine light blinking, car shudders, even worse...


Just had a very similar problem. The cause: wiring harness scrapes against the vibrating engine and wears the insulation off the wires causing shorts. In my case, this happened at the point where the wiring harness goes around the back side of the valve cover. There are some studs there that love to eat away at the wiring harness. This causes the computer to go spastic.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

My car just started getting a strong gasoline smell. It goes away then is back after a mile or 2. I did not just fill up my tank. what can be the cause of this smell?


Loose hoses.

But, time-out, time-out. Do not pass Go, do not collect $100. When you smell gas, it's dangerous. Take it to a mechanic tomorrow.
