SMELL OF GASE

When I having been practicing on my bike, I have noticed that it smells of gas when it is running. Not really raw gas but kinda of exhausty gas, it still as a bit a raw gas smell but it has an exhaust smell too. Also there is some slight smoking coming out of the exhaust pipes. Not too bad but if you look you can notice it. If I goose the throttle up it comes out more and the goes back to being light. Are these two problems related and what could be the cause?

Sounds like your bike is running rich. Probably wouldn't hurt to have your carburetors adjusted and synchronized.

I just had it installed and smell gas. if it says unvented , does it need vented or am i ok. im 73 yrs old and dont know much about gas heaters


An un-vented heater should never smell like raw gas, you may get an odor of combustion by-products but never raw gas. If you are getting the raw gas smell you either have a gas leak or incomplete combustion. Always follow manufacturers operation instructions that state "open window 1/4" to allow combustion air" If the unit is brand new, you will get an odor for 20 minutes or so of oils burning off of the heater but that smell should go away. Do you have a Carbon monoxide detector in the house? You should!

My car has a strong gas smell on the right side of my car. We jacked it up and noticed it was wet underneath the car. My gas miles have been good & it doesnt look like im loosing any gas quick it just...


don't know year make model but if you can smell gas and you see wetness underneath you should have it checked out. a small leak even though your not loosing much gas can be deadly especially if vehicle is in a garage or closed area cause the gas vapor is more of a problem than raw gas. there are lots of places that the leak could be coming from tank, lines, filter, evap system or the charcoal canister. much better to be safe than sorry, no need to have a major problem (possibly life threatening) develop over something that may be able to be fixed before hand.

Fuel smell


Your carbon canister may be saturated with fuel due to a clogged filter, this is part of the fuel vapor recovery system, or Evaporative emissions system. The canister looks like a coffee can or in some cases it is oblong shaped, it may be in the finder liner or out in the open near the radiator.

Idle low then hi, and gas smell, and bad gas mileage


This should show up easily on the ECU diagnostics computer at a mercedes dealership. Basically your fuel mixture is way too rich causing your car to be heavy on gas, have a raw gasoline smell, and not run right. Something like this can be caused by a defective oxygen sensor (but that usually produces a check engine light) or it might even be a defective ECU. There is really not way of knowing for sure until you do a proper diagnostics where they hook up your exhaust at the same time and do an emmission test. In most cases it's some sensor that needs replacing.

If the cat was doing anything, it would smell like rotten eggs.
If you have raw gas smell, use caution; you have a leak somewhere in your fuel delivery and you could see flames eventually.

Smell gas through vents when furnace is running


I would strongly suggest a carbon monoxide detector first. Also your gas provider should do a free leak check. This is nothing to play with.
