I have a raw gas smell comming from fuel tank area


There is a vent on some fuel tanks. As gas gets heated, either from the afternoon heat or from driving, it expands. If your tank is full or close to it, the vapors can escape through the filler tube or some have another vent tube near the filler tube

Evap emmission,control sys leak


Do not top off your gas tank. The gas is going into carbon canister which is only for fuel vapors to go into (carbon canister opening near the top of fuel neck near the gas cap). Your flooding the fuel vapor canister with liquid fuel; of course you are going to get a sensor message... 'Evap emmission,control sys leak

P0443 The fuel vapor canister reduces that gas smell on hot days outside/inside of car. The fuel vapor canister fillers bad smells from gas tank on hot days when the gas expands and burps fumes through carbon canister filter. From the canister (gas vapor fumes) goes back into the engine to be burned again...it's a closed loop for vapors to be recycled though engine. Don't worry, once the carbon canister dries out and no longer flooded with raw fuel the code should go away...just don't let the top off fuel tank back flow into the 'Evap emission control' carbon filter near the top and close to the gas cap...:)

When it runs fir a while it dies


Car runs then dies, left set it will run again and then die.
sounds like a fuel starvation.

I had similar problem on an old sunbeam. after doing
everything else, turned out to be paint inside gas tank
was flaking off and plugging up the hole in the tank bottom
where the gas line attached.

Had a similar problem on a Datsun. Turned out a small piece
of chewing gum wrapper foil got inside the gas tank and formed
itself into a perfect fitting cover for the fuel pump impeller intake.
This was so long ago it was the first in-tank fuel pump I had seen.

Note neither of these situations would have been fixed by
replacing the in line fuel filter.

Good Luck

Gas Tank starts to overflow on empty? I tried all different nozzle positions. But the gasoline still backs up?


The rubber hose that runs from the gas cap down to the tank has a smaller hose inside it. The gas goes down inside the smaller hose and the air comes up around the small hose and vents at the gas cap. It sounds like one or both hoses have become crimped somewhere. I wonder if maybe you have hit something like a parking lot curb or had a really hard thump near the gas cap. Crawl under your car and look for the gas tank filler hose. I think you will find the hose bent or collapsed between the cap and the tank. Replacing the filler hose is not difficult but can be frustrating. You may have to lower the tank to get enough clearance to remove the old hose and install the new one. The other suggestion is to see if your gas gauge is working properly. Is it possible that the tank is full and the gauge shows empty? Let me know what you find out.

I've just bought a 2001 Bonneville (not America) and it has flaking / melted paint around the filler cap. The bike is intermittenly missing a beat and has cut out a couple of times at low revs. Seems...


A good plan, but if the bike is already missing now and again, I would be tempted to strip and clean the carbs.
It would be worth cleaning the tank out as well.

I smell gas fumes coming from my car when i park and turn off the ignition


normally fumes come in to vehicle when stopped because of oil leak from rocker cover but check your fuel filler cap seal etc and also incase the tank is leaking just have a sniff at the rear of the car if its the filler cap or tank filler you normally get smell when tank is nearly full and been around a few corners the fuell filler nect becomes pourous and just spills out a bit if so will need replacing .but most time its an oil leak from rocker box or engine
