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...:)

Strong gas smell in vehicle


Take it seriously! Gasoline as a liquid is not flammable but the vapors are! Have it serviced and diagnosed by a professional unless you are mechanically inclined. If you were mechanically inclined I would assume that your question would have been more specific. Gas vapors can come from multiple sources. The seals/gaskets on the inlet. The vapor emission filter. Broken gas line. Bad air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel rail. Damage in-line fuel filter. Etc.

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.

Strong odor of gasoline vapors


do u have a check engine light on? do u overfill the tank? which is to say when the filler nozzle clicks off do u still try to put more fuel in? in any event u most likely have a overloaded carbon canister, pull the canister out and check it for gasoline saturation, the carbon canister is located under the car in a tray near the fuel tank.

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.
