If the sputter got real bad, I could smell what smelled like weed eater gas inside the cabin. As you could also imagine, there is a loss of power.

I have a 2003 freelander that smells of petrol whilst driving ive heard of this problem before but nwhat is the cause


Hi Paul:
The smell of petrol means that there is unburned fuel somewhere.
That is not good, and could be very bad, especially if it ignited.

I sincerely hope that you are not smelling this inside the vehicle while you are driving it.

Without running through a list of every possibility that I can think of, I'll make some suggestions.
1) When you smell the petrol, immediately pull over and shut the engine off. Lift the hood to access the engine and try to find the leak. Look at hoses, connections, fuel delivery components, gaskets. Look for wet spots, stains, wash marks where petrol may have moved dust and then evaporated.

Patience and a bit of time, and you should find it.

I'm also guessing that this is an external leak since you did not mention lack of power or backfiring.

Another possible is a failed hose connected to the fuel tank, or a faulty tank vent.

It's up to you. You're now detective Sherlock of the Petrol patrol.

1989 Bronco II smells like gasoline after I drive it. Any idea what is causing that?


If this vehicle has fuel injection which i think it could as cars in europe were fitted with cats from 92 but this is a 89 --but its american and if built to conform with californian regs then it could have a cat and fuel injection .if so check the O2 sensors as one of these faulty will allow the engine to overfuel .in all honesty i would need my head in the engine to know exactly whats wrong

1989 Ford Bronco. When I hooked up my battery I can hear the high pressure fuel pump running even though the key is turned off. I can start the truck up and it will run for a while. I took it for a spin...


if the key is off and the fuel pump still running then the fuel shut off switch and or the fuel pump is bad and needs replaced. More than likely the fuel pump might need to be replaced. (my 86 5.0 did the samething)
