Re: [DML] Fuel smell

Mark, I don't believe that the fuel smell is normal. Remove the rubber boot that covers the fuel pump. If there is gasoline on top of the fuel pump, the likely cause is the return fuel line connection  leaking. Disconnect the battery, remove the fuel from the top of the pump and tighten the line connection. While I am told that gasoline on top of the fuel pump is not that unusual, it should not be there if all hoses and connections are tight. Fixing the return fuel line connection stopped the gasoline smell in my car. Rod 10921
