Smell and see gas 2001 expedition

Do not start or use Vehicle. If in Garage, do not use the garage door opener. Manually open the door to Garage. Call tow truck with a flatbed. Have vehicle towed to open location.

There were some vehicles with Recalled gas tank straps. But anything could be wrong. The fix may be reasonable.

Call a Dealer with your Vin# to see if yours is an affected Recall.

When the heater is on there is a smell from the gas. Is this dangerous? What causes the smell?

How strong is the smell?
The smell is usually caused because the heater to turn on the flame has to emit a bit of gas first, and then a spark is made by the heater to make the flame burn, which in turn causes the rest of the flame in the heater to heat up the water.
If it is a constant smell, then I suggest you immediately turn off the heater and stop gas flow to the heater (should have a valve close by) and call the numbers that are shown on the unit. They will help you from there.

Gas Smell when heater turned on

When the heater is turned on, it is drawing in air from the cowl at the bottom of the windshield outside the car. If your smelling gas when you turn it on, it would suggest to me that there may be a fuel leak under the hood. A lot of Honda's have the fuel filter under the hood against the firewall. Open the hood, and see if the gas smell is any stronger, or any gas smell at all for that matter. I would strongly recommend getting the car checked as soon as possible, if you can find the source of the smell yourself.

Is a kerosene heater good for working in my garage during the cold winter? Is it safe to breath?

Is it safe? That depends on what you are working on. Having a fire/heat source on the floor is a possibly of an explosion if you have gasoline fuel vapors.

For the most part it is safe, you will smell when you leave the garage, but as long as it is not a real air-tight garage you would be ok.

I run a propane heater in my garage during the winter to get away for a bit. I also have a well ventilated area and don't work on gasoline related items during the winter with that on.
