Hello! The gas vapor system, which is under pressure, must be purged...Without the ability to purge fuel will not flow...This is the reason the engine will not idle...Because you smell gas vapors is an indication the vapor canis ter purge valve is either defective or has an open/broken vacuum line...Follow the vacuum diagram under the hood and trace all lines..."tired" vacuum lines will **** closed, replace any cracked, broken or soft lines...If this does not solve the problem replace the purge valve...See picture below...guru...saailer...

Sounds like your Catalytic converter on you exhaust is clogged, is your check engine light on,if so it probably a oxygen sensor at rear of converter gone bad which means computer cant adjust fuel so it goes to default which is full fuel mixture, this results in very poor fuel economy and clogged catalytic converter. the dodge 5.9 engine is the worst fuel economy engine to begin with 9 miles per gallon is not unheard of

Why is a very strong gas smell coming from my tailpipe?


White smoke is water vapor and in this cold climate it is normal. Strong gas smell is not normal although you may smell some while engine is warming up. Bad cat converter can produce smells, but usually more like rotten eggs. If engine is running rough and seems rich, check coolant temp sensor. Bad converter can cause stalling too. Otherwise, idle speed is controlled by idle air contol motor which can get dirty and stick. Any codes set?

Ran gas now starts then turns off and smells like burning rubber


Not sure I follow your story. If you really did run out of gas, you may have damaged the fuel pump in the tank. But it would not cause any smells.
Can you tell where the smell is coming from ?

Turn the AC system off, this includes defrost settings as well. I think your AC compressor is locked up on the engine.

1997 audi a4 quattro, Got gas went approx. 3 miles then smelled gas inside the care and it started a very violent stutter and would die at idle for about 4 miles, then would smooth out and run fine, 3rd...


does the check engine light come on or flash when the running issue starts? sounds like you have an ignition coil dropping out intermittenly.
