[DML] Re: Bad Gas smell after every fill up



The most common cause of gas fume smell is worn, old, misinstalled
fuel pump boots. Remove the spare tire and then the curved piece of
fiberglass that is held in by all of those screws. You will see the
round black rubber cover boot for the fuel pump. Loosen the clamp and
peel back the cover boot. Look in at the pump and see is it is
corroded, if there is water or fuel in the boot, etc. If the boot is
hard and not very pliable (the cover boot too) just replace them.
Another common problem is the wrong or a damaged fuel cap. Easy to
fix, get another.
