[DML] Re: Fuel smell

It seems to be fairly common but it is fixable. It is caused by either
the boot around the fuel pump or the gasket at the tank sender unit.
Also make sure all the hose clamps on the fill and vent are properly
positioned and tight. It is also possible you have the wrong gas cap.
If it was ever lost it might have been replaced with one that doesn't
seal correctly. Another possible source is a plugged up hose in the
vapor recovery system. On several cars I have noticed the vent hose
from the cannister gets plugged up by insects. It is like cement. I am
referring to the hose that comes out the bottom of the left pontoon
and attaches to the bottom of the vapor cannister. You can also change
the filter on it by removing the plastic cover on the bottom.
