Gas Smell 2010 Corolla

by GHB, February 2, 2018

Hello, every so often, when I start the Corolla, I get a strong smell of gas. Seems worse if it idles a bit. No black or blue smoke, nothing unusual other than smell of gas. I does not smell if the car just sits there no running, its only after I start it.

Any Ideas???

Could be a leak in the fuel delivery system, where a little bit drips out enough for it to come in the vents. It may be good to look for any moist areas along fuel lines, etc. Something may just need to be tightened. Did you notice this after a recent service?
