I'm smelling gas fumes inside the car when I'm idling but as soon as I accelerate it goes away


Gas smells come from leaks or the engine running too rich ( over fueled ). You need to inspect for any wetness/dampness around the fuel lines/rail and injectors if the smell appears from under the hood. If the engine is over fueled, a scan test can be performed to find out why. Sometimes oil leaks on/around the exhaust system can also give a fuel type smell. Have the vehicle checked for this also.

Gas smell coming from my tail pipes


There are some safeguards which diagnose rich fuel conditions. If you have a hybrid which has a start-stop feature, this may be a reason for the smell.

Have someone check underneath the car for fuel line leaks just in case. If the system is running rich, a warning will appear. Sometimes old gas will make the exhaust smell stronger and if you used the E85 there will be more odor.

My car has a rich gas smell then when it warms up smells like rotten eggs does it have something to do with the cadillac converter?


Maybe.
The rich gas smell is probably due to injector problems. The rotten egg smell is sulphur in the fuel, which reacts to the catalytic converter. The rich smell would need to be fixed first by checking the injectors and the engine computer.

Gas exhaust smell when Hot water heater ignites


Absolute danger here:

1) Call gas company IMMEDIATELY to check for gas leak that can cause explosion and fire.

2) Call plumber immediately to fix improper combustion or improper vent before toxic combustion by-product kills family.
Gas appliances must vent toxic by-product outside and away from home where the gasses will kill the planet instead of you.

Car Fuel Smell


You rubbed through the fuel tank or cracked it and it has a small leak. They make a fuel tank repair kit you can by a a auto parts store some times they work and sometimes they don't. If gas is spraying or leaking on the exhaust you could have a fire. I have drained a tank and put a screw with a fiber washer in the hole and then covered it with a 1/2 inch if silicone rubber it lasted for 5 years. Your fuel lines and filter are usually up on the side of the frame and should be ok

Smell gas in oven


We smell it sometimes, too. Ever since we got it we sometimes smell gas. I think we got used to it and just assumed it was the pilot light doing things.
