update on gas smell...


Recommended Posts

taking the car to rs motors next week.

I took a friend for a spirited ride today with the moon roof open. I noticed that the gas smell was pretty strong after cornering hard. I hope it is not the gas tanks....perhaps the roof open enhanced it....

:) You might check your filler tubes on each tank. One of my hose clamps popped loose and it was leaking fuel on hard cornering.Can't have that ,these cars were made for cornering! Also you might check the clear hoses, that are connected to the filler neck.Also the clear hose that crosses to the opposite side of the car.Mine were crystalized and had snapped at the "T" joint. Fixed these and the clamp and have had no more gas smells. :(
